“Colorful diversity, white death – what can colors tell us about coral reefs?” is the motto of the photography competition being held in the frame of the next International Coral Reef Symposium, which will be held in Bremen for the first time in July 2020. Entries will be accepted until February 29, 2020.
The International Coral reef Symposium (ICRS) is by far the most significant international conference that deals with the coral reef ecosystems. Since 1967,...19.12.2019 | Read more
From 11 to 13 December a conference entitled “Work, Ethics and Freedom” will take place at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (MPI). Using case studies, social anthropologists, sociologists, and legal scholars will explore what is understood as “work” today. This is the first conference of the Max-Cam Centre (Max Planck – Cambridge Centre for Ethics, Economy and Social Change). It will open on 11 December at 18:00 with a keynote by Wolfgang Streeck, Director Emeritus of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, on different configurations in the relationship between universalism and particularism, in theory and the real world.
The ethical foundations of work
Work is a central part of our lives. Around the world, most people spend a substantial portion of their lives working. It thus...
Agrophotovoltaics (APV) allows for the dual harvesting of crops and photovoltaic electricity on the same piece of land, providing sustainable solutions under consideration of soil protection and water conservation. The first international conference on APV systems AgriVoltaics2020 will take place in Perpignan, France from August 26-28, 2020 under the motto “Launching Agrivoltaics World Wide.” The conference is organized by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and the PSE Conferences & Consulting GmbH in Freiburg.
The AgriVoltaics2020 will address different aspects of the technology, from research to applications. Specialists in the areas of plant science and agronomy,...15.11.2019 | Read more
Following a successful premiere in 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will kick off the second Laser Symposium on Electromobility – LSE’20 – in Aachen on February 12, 2020. The two-day event will focus on high-efficiency laser techniques for every step in the process chain for producing batteries and electric vehicles. One of the main highlights will be a presentation from Swiss company E-Force One AG on the electrification of heavy-duty transportation.
2020 will be a defining year for electromobility in the global vehicle industry: that’s when the EU’s binding fleet-wide CO2 emission targets come into effect.15.11.2019 | Read more

KIT researchers develop novel composites of DNA, silica particles, and carbon nanotubes -- Properties can be tailored to various applications
Using DNA, smallest silica particles, and carbon nanotubes, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) developed novel programmable materials....
Styrofoam or copper - both materials have very different properties with regard to their ability to conduct heat. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz and the University of Bayreuth have now jointly developed and characterized a novel, extremely thin and transparent material that has different thermal conduction properties depending on the direction. While it can conduct heat extremely well in one direction, it shows good thermal insulation in the other direction.
Thermal insulation and thermal conduction play a crucial role in our everyday lives - from computer processors, where it is important to dissipate heat as...
In order to advance the transfer of research developments from the field of quantum sensor technology into industrial applications, an application laboratory is being established at Fraunhofer IAF. This will enable interested companies and especially regional SMEs and start-ups to evaluate the innovation potential of quantum sensors for their specific requirements. Both the state of Baden-Württemberg and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft are supporting the four-year project with one million euros each.
The application laboratory is being set up as part of the Fraunhofer lighthouse project »QMag«, short for quantum magnetometry. In this project, researchers...

Researchers from the University Hospital Zurich, ETH Zurich, Wyss Zurich and the University of Zurich have developed a machine that repairs injured human livers and keep them alive outside the body for one week. This breakthrough may increase the number of available organs for transplantation saving many lives of patients with severe liver diseases or cancer.
Until now, livers could be stored safely outside the body for only a few hours. With the novel perfusion technology, livers - and even injured livers - can now...
