What kind of science do we want for which kind of world in 2025?

21.03.2012
What kind of science do we want to have in 2025? How would it be organized? How would it be funded? How would the world we want be shaped by this kind of science? And vice versa: How would the science we want be shaped by the kind of world we want?

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.

VISION RD4SD (VISION Research and Development for Sustainable Development) is a Coordination and support action (2011-2013) financially supported by the European Commission 7th Framework Program, coordinated by the Swedish

Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (Formas).

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Perovskite edges can be tuned for optoelectronic performance

Layered 2D material improves efficiency for solar cells and LEDs

In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
