Agreement that sets up five Postdoctoral Fellowships and the establishment of an annual International Conference on ITER related research. The Agreement was signed by his Excellency, the Minister of the Principality of Monaco, Monsieur Jean Paul Proust and the Director General of the ITER Organization, Kaname Ikeda, in the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II.
This Partnership Agreement underlines the Principality of Monaco’s historical interest in nature preservation and its commitment to create, together with the International Fusion Community, a new energy source. “It is important to make the public and the principality’s economic actors become aware of the ITER project and the stakes it holds for our planet’s future”, Monsieur Jean Paul Proust said.
The Partnership Arrangement includes a contribution by the Principality of Monaco of 5.5 Million Euro for a ten year period, of which 150.000 € are to be dedicated to scientific conferences, and 400.000 € to Postdoctoral Fellowships each year. These Postdoctoral Fellowships shall enable five young scientists from the seven ITER Member countries or from the Principality of Monaco to be trained over two years in research areas related to the ITER project.
The Partnership Arrangement also foresees the organisation of an annual International Conference on scientific and technical subjects related to the ITER project that will take place in Monaco. In addition, the Principality of Monaco will host scientific meetings related to the ITER project or the ITER Council.
The arrangement enters into force immediately and will be concluded for a ten year period.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
