The European Society of Cardiology (EBAC), in association with the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC), has set up ESCed, http://www.ESCed.org, as a one-stop resource for case studies, guidelines, references and abstracts. ESCed registrants can compare answers and clinical decisions with colleagues across Europe and earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by following the on-line courses.
Professor Roberto Ferrari, Ferrara, Italy, Chairman of the ESC Education Committee states, "ESCed is based on a patient management-led core curriculum and delivered through a series of case studies with a hands-on approach to patient management. The internet is an ideal way to link medical professionals from all over Europe and enable them to interact and discuss key topics with their colleagues. It is my belief that ESCed will swiftly become a leading resource and discussion forum in European cardiology".
Dr Keith McGregor, ESC Scientific Programmes Director, comments, "The clear course structure of ESCed is easy to follow and very dynamic, with new case studies and materials being added on a continual basis. Feedback from registrants is crucial to keeping ESCed up to date and ensuring the site is user-friendly. ESCed users can also offer case studies or other educational materials to be uploaded onto the system and shared with their colleagues. We have designed ESCed to be a fully-interactive on-line tool and encourage comments and suggestions from all visitors and registrants".

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
