From Genes to Ecosystem: EuroMarine General Assembly in Bremen

13.01.2012
More than 100 international scientists of the EU multidisciplinary marine network EuroMarine meet on 17 January for three days in Bremen. The aim of the conference is to reach better integration of marine science in Europe.

A multidisciplinary approach will help to understand the interactions between genes, organisms and ecosystems, including their response to human activity and climate. A key challenge is to ensure that this wealth of knowledge is made available to anyone interested.

Dr Stephane Pesant from the MARUM in Bremen says: “ The EuroMarine network will establish common services and tools to train and support a new generation of scientists that can specialize in one field and still be literate-in and connected-to the fields of genomics, biodiversity and ecosystem research.”-

This two year EuroMarine project is supported in the Bremen State by the Centre for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM), the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology and the Alfred Wegener Institute for polar and marine science, together with many universities and research institutions from Sweden, Portugal, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Belgium, and is coordinated by the University of Gothenburg.

For interviews please contact Manfred Schloesser. On Wednesday, 18 January 2012, after the opening ceremony starting at 14:00 we are pleased to welcome journalists at the Atlantic Hotel Universum (http://www.atlantic-hotels.de/universum)

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
