On October 18-19, 2012, the International Conference on Highlights and Trends in Solar Energy, Solar Summit Freiburg, will be held at the “Konzerthaus” conference center in Freiburg.
The conference will provide an overview of solar energy conversion technologies. In addition to the latest research and development, discussions will also cover current market and political trends. This year, the focus of the conference is sustainable urban development, under the headline “The Future Sustainable City”.
The “Solar Summit Freiburg 2012” program is divided into the following subjects: Intelligent transformation of our energy supply, the focus subject “The Future Sustainable City” and trends in solar technology, such as heating and cooling, storage technologies and photovoltaics. Renowned international speakers and experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will present the topics and discuss them with participants.
“Once again, we are looking forward to lively discussions and networking with participants from a variety of fields, such as industry and politics, research and technology, as well as investors, banks and the media,” says Prof. Eicke R. Weber, scientific chair of the conference and Director of Fraunhofer ISE.
“The Solar Summit is an excellent platform which allows all the sectors involved in the energy revolution to carry out the vital task of sharing their knowledge and ideas; Fraunhofer ISE’s portfolio covers a wide range of these subjects.”
The Solar Summit Freiburg conferences are hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, supported by FWTM and Messe München, and organised by PSE AG from Freiburg. For more information please visit http://www.solar-summit-2012.org

The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.
Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...
Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.
Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.
RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...
