This conference will be the first in a series of biennial in-depth meetings that will bring together academic and industrial scientists, regulators and policy makers. A total of five conferences will be held each year covering Nanomedicine, Rare Diseases, Pharmacogenomics/Pharmacogenetics, Systems Biology and Functional Genomics.
Commenting on the new partnership Caroline Hirst, Head of the ESF Research Conferences Unit says, “The ESF is committed to forming valuable partnerships with key players in the scientific community. We will sign this new agreement with the University of Barcelona on 19 September to ensure both parties continue to provide a forum for high level topics at the frontier of scientific research. In this way, Catalonia also ensures they play their part in setting science agendas in Europe.”
Last year, ESF also signed an agreement of cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Universities of the Catalan Government. Representatives from the Ministry of Education and Universities of the Catalan Government and the University of Barcelona will attend the official signing ceremony in Sant Feliu de Guixols on 19 September.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
