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: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
