From 16-18 June 2010 the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) is again hosting the IAMO Forum. This year the international conference titled „Institutions in Transition – Challenges for New Modes of Governance“ deals with institutional economics.
Recently, broader attention was brought to this field of economics, which focuses on the interrelations between economics and institutions of a society, when the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Prof. Dr. Elinor Ostrom and Prof. Dr. Oliver Williamson, two institutional economists.KEYNOTE SPEAKERS FROM IFPRI, FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY AND THE EU
Birner, who is head of the IFPRI research programme „Governance for Agriculture and Rural Development”, is a well-know expert in the field of political economics, agricultural policies and governance of natural resources. Further keynote speaker is Dr. Eric A. Coleman, Research Associate at the Institute of Political Economics of the Florida State University. The expert for common forestry management and the institutionalisation of rules in groups presents at the IAMO Forum 2010 his ideas on „The policentricity concept applied to natural resource management”. Also, representatives of politics join the conference.
Dr. Anastassios Haniotis, Head of the Department „Agricultural policy analysis and perspectives“ of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development, is to speak on „The instrument of ex-ante impact assessment of agricultural and rural EU policies – current state and future perspectives”.SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT OF STATE-OWNED AGRICULTURAL LAND

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
