CORDIS offers new service on the future of European research

14.01.2002


CORDIS, the European Commission`s Research and Development Information Service, is offering a new online service dedicated to science and technology foresight and the future of European research. The service is part of the re-launch of a redesigned and upgraded CORDIS `Research beyond 2002` site to reflect the latest developments on both the European research area (ERA) and the Sixth Framework programme (FP6).



Technology Foresight

The new service provides information on research foresight initiatives, which aim to identify today`s research and innovation priorities on the basis of scenarios of future developments in science and technology, society and the economy.


On the site, users will find a list of national actors involved in different foresight activities. The service also offers a platform to strengthen the integration of European research and cooperation in science and technology foresight.

Links to examples of previous exercises are provided, including EU-funded research on policy planning and technological assessment and on-going thematic projects.

The information available on the site aims to help stakeholders cooperate in defining further strategies and keep up to date with relevant news and events. An online forum planned for the site will allow users to give their opinion on relevant texts about science and technology foresight activities.

The latest on the Sixth Framework Programme and ERA

The CORDIS "Research Beyond 2002" Service has been re-structured to follow the main priorities and themes under discussion in the final stage of adopting the EU`s Sixth Framework Research Programme as a tool for the implementation of the Eureopan Research Area. The ERA debate section, for example, offers information on key issues such as centres of excellence, research for policy making, researcher mobility and the role of regions. The Sixth Framework activities section provides information in accordance with the structure and thematic priorities of the programme. Each page brings together key documents and positions, along with open debates and relevant links.

The service also offers news coverage and links to reference documents and interviews. The sub-sites on the science and technology indicators www.cordis.lu/indicators and on the science and society action plan and debate www.cordis.lu/science-society provide statistics and practical information on key issues for the future of European research.

The redesigned, fully searchable service will remain enable users to keep track of developments leading to the final adoption of FP6, one of the priorities set out by the current Spanish Presidency of the EU.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
