New Nanoforum Website Launched

24.08.2005


New look but same breadth of information

The new-look is the result of a critical evaluation of website functionality and a review of what registered users want from Nanoforum. The revamped website offers the same level of information and detail as before, but it is now easier to search for related information.

The homepage lists the latest news with quick links to events, organisations, calls and programs, and Nanoforum reports, with the number of entries in each listed in brackets. There is also a “Highlights” section for the latest news from Nanoforum (for example new reports, conferences etc) as well as other important information for the community. In addition advertising space on the Nanoforum homepage is now available.



However, the main difference that regular users will find is the classification of information into different sectors using a pictorial menu bar.

New Navigation System

A new pictorial menu bar located below the Nanoforum banner allows users to access information on specific sectors quickly:

• Chemistry and Materials
• Health and Nanobio
• NanoTools and Metrology
• Information and Communication
• Transport and Space
• Energy
• Fundamental Science

and the following additional sectors can be chosen by selecting the “more” button to the right of the menu bar:

• Society Issues
• Safety and Environment
• Consumer Products
• Construction
• Strategy
• Economy
• Agriculture and Food

Clicking on any of these buttons filters all the information in the Nanoforum databases to present only that which is relevant to the selected sector.

This information is displayed in convenient panels in the following categories: news, events, calls and programs, and publications. Additional sections for organisations, and Nanoforum reports are present with a “Further Information” panel providing links to information on education, investment, and jobs, and specialised sections for press and business.

Other changes

An easier-to-use interface has been developed which allows users to find details of organisations within each state by clicking on a map of Europe. In this regard the “Institutions” database has been renamed to “Organisations” to reflect the fact that entries are from both the private and publicly funded sectors.

The extended search facility has been improved and allows users to search for specific entries within the Nanoforum website from each sub-page (the original system of searching by “R&D” or “Applications” is still possible).

A site-map for nanoforum.org has also been included for user convenience, and is located at the top of the screen, along with information on Nanoforum and contact details.

Most importantly, all of this information is free. All we ask is that users take a few moments to complete a registered user form which will also allow us to keep you up-to-date with all the latest European nanotechnology news.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
