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:

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.
Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
