SEMIC.EU offers a platform for European cooperation. The Centre enables users to exchange solutions for pan-European data interchange in eGovernment. This way, the EU clears the way for harmonised data exchange in European administration and facilitates semantic interoperability - the assurance that the meaning of data is preserved and information is interpreted in the same way at all ends of the communication channels.
Moreover, SEMIC.EU offers its users help and support in the development and advancement of their solutions as well as coaching service. It also creates networks and expert communities for eGovernment projects.
"SEMIC.EU encourages users to exchange proven ideas and solutions which would otherwise have remained unnoticed outside their respective projects. In doing so, SEMIC.EU can help to save time and costs, to enhance the visibility of projects and to build future-proof solutions", says Aldo Laudi, project manager responsible for SEMIC.EU with the IDABC programme.
The German eGovernment specialist ]init[ AG implemented the portal in the framework of the IDABC programme (Interoperable Delivery of European eGovernment Services to public administrations, businesses and citizens) in cooperation with Fraunhofer ISST, GEFEG GmbH and France Telecom. The launch of www.semic.eu on 17th June 2008 represents an important milestone on the way towards semantic interoperability in Europe.About ]init[ AG:
The portfolio of services comprises IT consultancy and technical implementation as well as highly available operation and hosting in a high security data processing centre. The company was founded in 1995 by Dirk Stocksmeier who is currently chairman of the supervisory board. More information is available at www.init.de.
Fraunhofer ISST consists of two branches, one in Berlin and one in Dortmund. It was established in 1992. Since then it enforces the research in informatics within the Fraunhofer unit for information and communications technology (ICT).Contact:

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
