Making e-Agriculture Work through Public Private Partnership (PPP) in Asia

11.03.2008
This Forum is also a lead up to the e-Agriculture INDIA 2008 Conference to be held in New Dehli, India 29-31 July 2008. Outcomes will also be reported to the World Summit on the Information Society Follow-up Action meetings to be held in May 2008.

Making e-Agriculture Work through Public Private Partnership (PPP) in Asia Forum Starts Today

A Global Knowledge Partnership Event

Participate by registering at http://www.e-agriculture.org/regform.html

Sponsored by Katalyst and FAO. Moderated by Katalyst, a multi-donor funded market development project implemented by Swisscontact, the Swiss Foundation for Technical Cooperation and co-implemented by GTZ-International Services.

e-agriculture.org is hosting a special online forum starting today 10 March 2008 on the Role of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). Areas which will be explored include: The scope of Public Private Partnerships to implement e-Agriculture successfully; Understanding the major & common constraints in PPP based on past experiences and current practices; Suggestions and solutions to overcome the challenges and focus on bringing practical solutions; and the roles of stakeholders: government, private sector, and others. The forum will run until 28 March 2008.

Subject Matter Experts Participating include:

- M. Asaduzzaman, Research Director, Agriculture and Rural Development, Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS)
- Amit Dasgupta, General Manager, IBM Global Services India
- Philip DesAutels, Academic Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation
- Noel Magor, Head, IRRI Training Center
- Naimur Rahman, Director, OneWorld South Asia
- Sunit Shrestha, Director, TNR Institute, Thailand
Moderated by:
- Manish Pandey, Deputy General Manager of Katalyst
- Michael Riggs, Information Management Specialist, FAO
- Charlotte Masiello-Riome, World Summit on the Information Society Communications Focal Point, e-agriculture and e-agriculture.org Coordinator

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

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...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

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...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

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...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
