How Europe‘s judges and state attorneys are to cooperate and how citizens and human rights are to remain intact, isn’t clear. Searching to solve these problems and thus ensuring better legal certainty, is the subject matter at an international conference named “Criminal Justice in Europe: Challenges, Principles and Perspectives” on 22 and 23 October in Luxembourg.
High-ranking politicians such as the German Minister for Justice, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, European Commissioner for Justice, Viviane Reding and Luxembourg Minister for Justice, François Biltgen, as well as renowned scientists and European judges like Marc Jaeger, President of the European Union Court will attend the conference.
The conference is organised by the “Institut Universitaire International Luxembourg” (IUIL) and the University of Luxembourg, and will take place in walking distance from the European Court of Justice in the heart of the EU quarters on Kirchberg. The aim of the participants at the symposium is to find ways to strengthen European Justice. Researchers see this as the best way out of legal uncertainty. “We have to make justice more independent and strengthen it toward the police, better control cross-border cooperation and above all train judges and attorneys to better manage new challenges”, Prof. Dr. Stefan Braum, penologist at the University of Luxembourg and co-organiser of the conference, explains.
The Luxembourgish EU judges therefore plan to build up an “Ecole de la Magistrature” (School of Magistracy), that will ensure training and continuing education of jurists. The conference, such is the organisers’ idea, is to lay the cornerstone for this school.
The complete programme can be downloaded at http://upload.iuil.lu/cj/brochure.pdf. The symposium speeches and debates will be translated into English, French and German simultaneously. Registration is possible until October 18th. Further information available from Raphaël Briche, Tel. +352 -220.127.116.11, or Evelyne Engler, Tel : +352 -18.104.22.168.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
