The Hon. Minister of International Trade and Industry, Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed will be leading a Trade & Investment Mission to Europe from 7-13 March 2010. The Hon. Minister will be accompanied by a group of leading Malaysian businessmen and senior government officials.
In conjunction with the mission, a seminar on “Trade & Investment Opportunities in Advanced Engineering and Life Sciences in Malaysia” will be held on Friday, 12 March 2010 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham B40 1PP, United Kingdom.
The event is jointly organised by the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) and Malaysia External Trade Corporation (MATRADE) in collaboration with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and Midlands World Trade Forum (MWTF).
The Hon. Minister will deliver a keynote address at the seminar, which will focus on current economic environment in Malaysia; latest prevailing business environment and opportunities in the country; facilities and incentives offered by the government and advantages of Malaysia as a strategic hub for operations in the region. Participants of the seminar will also have the opportunity to hold dialogues with the Hon. Minister; establish networking with Malaysian businessmen as well as the opportunity to explore potential business collaboration or alliance in Malaysia and UK.
Invitations are now open. If you would like to attend this event, please contact MIDA London:MIDA London

Today, plants and microorganisms are heavily used for the production of medicinal products. The production of biopharmaceuticals in plants, also referred to as “Molecular Pharming”, represents a continuously growing field of plant biotechnology. Preferred host organisms include yeast and crop plants, such as maize and potato – plants with high demands. With the help of a special algal strain, the research team of Prof. Ralph Bock at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam strives to develop a more efficient and resource-saving system for the production of medicines and vaccines. They tested its practicality by synthesizing a component of a potential AIDS vaccine.
The use of plants and microorganisms to produce pharmaceuticals is nothing new. In 1982, bacteria were genetically modified to produce human insulin, a drug...
Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.
The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
