5th BMBF Forum for Sustainability "Research for Sustainability - Driver for Innovation"

14.07.2008
The 5th BMBF Forum for Sustainability "Research for Sustainability - Driver for Innovation" will take place in the ewerk, Berlin, from 23 - 25 September 2008. The Federal Minister for Education and Research Dr. Annette Schavan will open this international event for the strengthening of collaborations between politics, science and industry. A central part of the programme is the "12th European Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (erscp2008)", that will be hosted in line with the Europe-wide networking in Germany for the first time.

The 5th BMBF Forum for Sustainability features discussions about the state of the art in research, about the collaboration between politics, science and research communities as well as future research priorities. In about 40 sessions and workshops more than 400 international participants will discuss projects, ideas and approaches and their contribution to sustainable development. The objectives are: to present best-practice examples, to explore solution-driven opportunities and to initiate joint projects.

The conference is expected to attract participants from politics, science and industry including high-level representatives from research policy from Poland, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary with whom the dialogue on sustainability research was started at the 4th BMBF Forum for Sustainability (L2L) in Leipzig in 2007.

The three-day scientific programme will cover the following topics:

A Research for Sustainability - Opportunities for Europe
B Hightech for Sustainability - Collaboration of Science and Industry
C Resource Efficiency - Strategies and Implementations
D Sustainable Landuse - Implications for Europe and beyond
E Sustainability Science - Chances, Challenges and New Perspectives
erscp2008
I Sustainable Housing and Construction in Europe
II Sustainable Supply Chain Management
III Sustainable Production and Resource Efficiency
IV Sustainable Energy Supply and Consumption
V General Topics
In addition, the social programme with evening events, sight-seeing programme and the so called "Locations of Organised Coincidence" will offer manifold possibilities for making new contacts and initiating projects.

HZI researchers developed a bacterial strain that can be used in cancer therapy

Salmonellae are dangerous pathogens that enter the body via contaminated food and can cause severe infections. But these bacteria are also known to target...

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
