Good examples, successful measures and new ideas are called for the 3rd international scientific and final GreenNet conference of the EU project GreenNet – Promoting the ecological network of the European Green Belt (http://www.greennet-project.eu).
Registrations are possible until 20 May 2014. We are calling for practical or scientific short papers with pictures or posters, showing successful cooperation along the Green Belt until 15 March 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The European Green Belt as a multifunctional ecological network has a unique natural and cultural heritage with an emotional human and political history, meaning and transformative power. It is a corridor full of biodiversity hotspots in a more and more fragmented, intensively used and degraded European landscape and connects people from 24 European countries and a great amount of valuable landscapes.The concept of ecological networks developed from a single nature protection strategy over decades to a comprehensive strategy including cultural, social and economic aspects. It delivers value and multiple benefits from nature to people and society as well as the adaption to climate change.
On the practical level onsite there are diverse examples and inspiring new ideas at the European Green Belt, as successful nature conservation, agricultural rezoning, community supported economies like markets with typical local products and food, sheep stocks or regional money, , historical “smug-gling-tours”, walking and cycling paths, contacts to the transition movement, nature movie festivals, working with schools and students …We are looking forward to your ideas and contributions!

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.
While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.
Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
Scaffolding and specialised workers help with the delivery – Heidelberg biochemists gain new insights into biogenesis
A type of scaffolding on which specialised workers ply their trade helps in the manufacturing process of the two subunits from which the ribosome – the protein...
Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.
In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...
