These are questions that will be discussed in the session at the Planet under Pressure Conference on "Developing a VISION for harnessing R&D to sustainable development". Thursday, 29 March 2012 13.00
Press release from the Swedish Research Council Formas
The EU FP7 Coordination and Support Action “VISION RD4SD” (www.visionRD4SD.eu) is working on a “shared vision on how best to harness research and development for sustainable development (RD4SD).” This vision is being developed by the 33 partners and observers that include science funding bodies and national science policy institutions from 21 countries (European member states and beyond).
The session will focus on the first draft of the vision developed by the project and discuss it with the participants. The main part of the Key Event will be a facilitated discussion on the vision and its implications. The feedback from the participants of the session will be fed into the ongoing dialogue process of the VISION RD4SD project. Thus the session provides the opportunity for a wider target group to give inputs for the final version of the shared vision as well as for the road maps and strategies for its implementation.For more information:

A Swedish-German team of researchers has cleared up a key process for the artificial production of silk. With the help of the intense X-rays from DESY's...
For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...
An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...
Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...
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...
