...discuss Science, Industry & Society and the Great Challenges to Humanity at Europe’s most international biotechnology congress.

Sunday 16 September through Wednesday 19 September, over 1200 leading life scientists, biotechnology sector leaders, and officials from 65 countries will gather in Barcelona at the 13th European Congress on Biotechnology to discuss Science, Industry and Society, cutting edge science in all disciplines of biotechnology, and science’s role and responsibility in addressing the great challenges to humanity in the developing countries as well as improving quality of life for society in Europe and world-wide.

Leading scientists from academia and industry will address these issues in the Science, Industry & Society central theme of the Congress, and cutting edge science in the 4 other key streams of the Congress, Health & Medicine, Functional Genomics & Systems Biology, Industrial Biotechnology, Green Biotechnology. This is an ideal example of scientists coming together from around the world to focus not only cutting edge science in their scientific disciplines, but cross disciplinary cooperation and the application of science in benefit of humanity.

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...
