It will be organised by the Faculty of Life Sciences of the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg, Germany, under the leadership of Professor Walter Leal from the research and transfer centre "Applications of Life Sciences".
The centre is part of the Faculty of Life Sciences. Other partners of the conference are the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Moreover, UNESCO declared the event to be a project of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 to 2014). The Hamburg public relations agency RAIKE Kommunikation is also a partner of the conference and responsible for its sponsoring as well as the marketing.
Conference with a new concept:
"Klima 2008 / Climate 2008" will take place exclusively on the Internet. Conference languages are German and English. On the basis of submitted scientific paper abstracts participants of the conference will debate in forums on various aspects of the climate change. In addition, they will have the opportunity to present climate projects to a worldwide audience. The public may also be interested in getting in contact with the participating scientists. "We offer the opportunity to discuss with all target groups at a high level without polluting the environment," says Leal. The climate conference will address a wide audience: scientists, politicians, businessmen, associations and NGOs, as well as schools and everyone else who is interested in the conference. Objectives of the conference are to develop synergies, to share scientific knowledge and to promote cooperation among scientific institutions. The organisers expect at least a million conference participants. Participation in "2008 Klima / Climate 2008" is free.Ideas and abstracts for technical papers can be submitted by e-mail to
The research and transfer centre "Applications of Life Sciences": The research and transfer centre "Applications of Life Sciences" of the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg, Germany was founded in August 2007. It is managed by Professor Walter Leal. The centre provides local, national and international project approaches - particularly in the field of life sciences (including biotechnology, as well as medical, pharmaceutical and environmental protection technology) and in terms of issues such as energy, climate change and sustainability.

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...

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...
