The Future of European Polar Research

05.11.2007
European Polar Summit , 7th November, Rome, Italy

'The Future of European Polar Research - Towards an enhanced coordination framework of programmes and infrastructures in the European Research Area'

The European Science Foundation (ESF) European Polar Board and the European Polar Consortium will hold a European Polar Summit on 7th November in Rome to mark the launch of two major strategic documents that present updated overview of research infrastructures efforts in the Arctic and Antarctic, and assessment of the current management polar programmes in 19 European countries.

The report The Landscape of European Polar Research; Volume 1: An assessment if current strategic management, polar programme definition and processes details the current status of strategic processes, management practices, investment, evaluation and granting procedures of the 27 government agencies from 19 European countries that are currently partners in the European Polar Consortium.

This second publication The Landscape of European Polar Research; Volume II: European polar capacity – an overview of research infrastructures in the Arctic and Antarctic will provide a strategic overview and portfolio of European polar research infrastructures in the Arctic and Antarctic controlled and owned by European countries including the Russian Federation and Greenland Home Rule.

The event will also launch a major Initiative INFRAPOLAR which is intended to network European Polar Research stations in the Arctic and Antarctic for the provision of research services in the area of climate and Environmental sciences

The Polar Summit in Rome will kick off on 7th November with a press conference at noon to launch the two publications. The summit will be opened at 10.00am by the Italian Minister of Universities and Research the Honorable Fabio Mussi and in attendance with officials from the European Commission, National Polar programme managers from 19 European countries and invited guests and researchers.

Dr David Carlson Director International Polar Year Programme & Dr Artur Chilingarov Special Representative of President Putin for the International Polar Year and as Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federatio will also attend.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
