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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
