Ceremony marks the transfer of the Euroscience Open Forum from Barcelona to Turin for 2010

23.07.2008
The official investiture of Turin as the next city to host the Euroscience Open Forum in 2010 took place today in Barcelona where ESOF2008 is now drawing to a close.

At a ceremony held at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion at the Fira in Barcelona, Jordi Hereu the Major of Barcelona and Enric Banda the ESOF2008 Barcelona President passed on the honour of hosting ESOF2010 to Turin’s Major Sergio Chiamparino, and President of ESOF2010 Enrico Predazzi. The event will be held in Turin, the Piedmontese capital city, from 2 to 7 July 2010.

ESOF2010 will bring together leading organisations from 40 European countries and over 2000 participants, including scientists, teachers, the media, politicians, businessmen and the public, to focus on research and scientific innovation. Turin has an important role as a ‘crossroad of innovation’ – a city long involved in bringing people together and exchanging views on societal policies, supporting research, and especially in engaging young people in science.

The transfer ceremony featured 40 Italian students, who won awards in the ‘Catch the Bus Science’ scheme, media partner ‘La Stampa’, and the Turin Local Organising Committee which is a partnership involving CentroScienza Onlus, Agorà Scienza – University of Turin, Compagnia di San Paolo. A‘logo puzzle’ manoeuvred by 18 enthusiastic science explainers took part in the transfer of the ESOF commitment.

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: 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...
