New Worlds - New Solutions - Research and Innovation as a Basis for Developing Europe in a Global Context

29.06.2009
As a part of the Swedish EU-presidency, the Swedish Government will host a conference on the future of European research; New Worlds - New Solutions - Research and Innovation as a Basis for Developing Europe in a Global Context.

The Conference will take place in Lund, Sweden, on 7-8 July 2009 (at Lund University), and will be opened by the Minister for Higher Education and Research, Dr. Tobias Krantz, and the European Commissioner for Science and Research, Dr. Janez Potocnik. The overall theme of the Conference is the role of research and innovation in the development of Europe up to 2025. We expect around 400 participants.

The countries and citizens of Europe are facing new global changes which represent difficult environmental, economic and social challenges. The need for research-based knowledge has never been greater. The Swedish Government will bring together key researchers, politicians and officials who, in a joint effort, will lay the ground for considerations about future directions for research and innovation in Europe.

At this juncture in history, in the midst of a financial crisis, these issues must be raised with new force. The Conference discussions will be concentrated in the Lund Declaration, thus providing a substantial input to the future of European research and innovation in a global context.

The press are invited to attend to an infomal press meeting on 7 July at 10 a.m., room 206 at the University. The Minister for Higher Education and Research, Dr. Tobias Krantz, and the European Commissioner for Science and Research, Dr. Janez Potocnik will attend.

At the end of the conference, after that the Lund Declaration has been presented to the Minister for Higher Education and Research, a pressconference will be held.

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: 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...
