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.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

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...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

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...
