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.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
