The mounting challenges implied by the lack of talents to safeguard continued economic growth in the Baltic Sea Region is the overriding theme when top politicians, high ranking business leaders, experts and academia meet at Baltic Development Forum Summit 4-6 November.
The quest for talents will be viewed from various angles such as how to boost entrepreneurship and innovation. Furthermore how to tackle the environmental and...
G 8 experts and their African counterparts convene for two days in Germany, Oct. 18-19, to map out specific ways to meet agreed commitments to foster better economic and social conditions in Africa through science and technology (S&T).
The meeting advances the initiatives pledged in the declarations of the Gleneagles and Heiligendamm G 8 summits, supporting a strong commitment towards...
On 18-19 October in Paris, CIRCE, the biggest research project about Mediterranean climate, will involve stakeholders to address research and debate adaptation strategies to global warming. Main issues to cope with will be impacts on agriculture and rural development, energy, tourism, coastal and terrestrial ecosystems, urban and regional planning.
As stated by Norwegian Nobel Prize committee in awarding Nobel Prize 2007 for Peace to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al)...
From October, 17 to 20, 2007 the World Congress on Regenerative Medicine (WCRM) is taking place in Leipzig. For the third time top-level international scientists will present their latest findings in the trade fair city of Leipzig.
"We are very glad that we have succeeded in finding a common platform for the presentation of the novel themes within Regenerative Medicine at the World...
Today, society is seeking ways of dealing with an ageing population, degenerative diseases such as cancer and arthritis, the problems of increased cardiovascular and other life style diseases such as diabetes.
Alongside this is the need to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis and Aids, and other ‘plagues’ of the 21st century. Other crises revolve around the shortage of...
The extent to which there is an “anti-science” culture in Britain will be one of the themes of a conference held today, Tuesday 16th October.
Speakers at the event will challenge the view that the British public is ‘anti-science’ and will suggest instead that people are selective about embracing or...
Comets and asteroids are a small but important part of the Solar System. Scientists have long debated how they formed: did their component grains accrete from the cloud of gas and dust – the solar nebula - that encircled the Sun at the beginning of the Solar System or did they undergo melting due to violent impacts and the presence of short-lived radioactivity?
On October 12th delegates attending the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) meeting ‘Early Solar System Processes on Meteorites’ will discuss the competing...
On 14-17 October it will be time for the second international conference on Global Change Research in Nynäshamn, Sweden.
The theme for the conference is Global Environmental Change with the focus on the Arctic Region. The organizers are the European Science Foundation, ESF, along...
With only few days left until the 3rd World Congress on Regenerative Medicine (WCRM) in the Congress Centre in the city of Leipzig, public interest turns towards the various themes surrounding regenerative medicine.

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...
Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.
Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna
