GreenNet - 3rd scientific and final conference

27.05.2014

Conference about the Green Belt, Juni 3rd and 4th, Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany

“Perspectives for biological and cultural diversity along the European Green Belt” is the title of the 3rd scientific conference of GreenNet on the 3rd and 4th of June in Eisenach. The 3rd scientific GreenNet-conference deals with successful initiatives and projects around the green belt, a corridor which emerged from the division of Europe after the Cold War.

In the INTERREG project "GREENNET - Promoting the ecological network in the European Green Belt" the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt works together with eleven project partners from Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Slovakia. 

The university is involved with the department of "Landscape planning" (Prof. Dr. Ilke Marshal) and the Institute of "Transport and Spatial Planning" (Prof. Dr. Matthias Gather).

On the 1st conference day the results of the project will be presented with regard to protection strategies, lobbying activities and success stories. Furthermore the Thuringian Minister for European affairs Jürgen Gnauck could be engaged for a welcoming speech. 

Further keynote speaker are Pia Bucella from the European Commission and Prof. Marangon from the University in Udine. For the following panel discussion well known representatives as Prof. Thöne and Prof. Weiger could be gained.

On the second day after a keynote from the German Association for Landcare (DVL) good examples of landscape action and successful measures along the European Green Belt will be discussed.
Therefore the following topics will be presented:

• the Thuringian Nature Conservation Foundation in terms of the supervision of 3,800 ha of the Green Belt in Germany
• the economic importance of the Green Belt in the Italian Julian Prealps
• the activities of Southern Burgenland in Austria
• saving species-rich meadows at the river Kutschenitza which marks the state border between Austria and Slovenia
• possible new forms of land use along the Green Belt in Slovenia
• Biodiversity in the Bulgarian Osogovo region
• transboundary cooperation in the Balkans
• the international UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Mura-Drava-Danube
• Czech school expeditions to the Green Belt as a reminder of history and a chance for the future
• environmental education at the German Green Belt
• and finally: documentation, information and education about the European Green Belt
Further presentations as Dr. Bongartz from the Thuringian Ministry of Construction, Land Development and Transport (TMBLV) and Stefan Kemper of the German rural space network (DVS) and a final discussion will complete the second day.

The working language of the conference will be English.
Interested parties are invited to sign up till May 30th. The registration form can be found on http://www.greennet-project.eu as well as on the flyer of the conference program.

On the 3rd of June, 5:15 pm, there will be a press conference at the Steigenberger Hotel Thüringer Hof, Karlsplatz 11 in Eisenach.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
