...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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
