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: DNA repair: a new letter in the cell alphabet

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
