Most salient outcomes of those projects dedicated to progress and advances of the MBR technology for municipal wastewater treatment will be presented in a two-day workshop endorsed by the International Water Association. 31 March - 1 April 2009, Berlin, Germany
1st announcement and call for posters
Results of fundamental and applied research as well as technological breakthroughs achieved by the project partners in the field of the MBR technology will be unveiled in about 40 oral presentations and 50 posters.
A dedicated poster session will be included in the workshop program. Any international team or company active in the MBR field is welcome to present a poster. A prize of 1,000 € will be awarded to the best student poster presented at the workshop by a jury of international experts. Extended abstracts for poster presentation can be submitted by 30 September 2008 to the workshop organisers.
The final MBR-Network workshop will take place on 31 March - 1 April 2009 in Berlin, Germany, and will be hosted by the international conference and exhibition on water and wastewater treatment Wasser Berlin 2009 (www.wasser-berlin.com).Contact:

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
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...
