Bioenergy education takes off in Europe

26.01.2007
The Bioenergy Network of Excellence (NoE) is inviting any European university offering a Masters or PhD programme in bioenergy to take part in an education and training pavilion at the world’s biggest bioenergy event this Spring in Berlin – free of charge.

Masters and PhD courses in bioenergy have been introduced at a lightning pace over the last five years. A 2005 study by Bioenergy NoE found that 55 out of the 60 Masters courses teaching bioenergy surveyed in Europe began between 2000 and 2005.

These new opportunities for bioenergy education and training come at just the right time to help fill some of the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be created if bioenergy use meets the EU targets. The European Commission’s 2005 Biomass and Biofuels Action Plan predicted that at least 250,000 new jobs will be created in bioenergy by 2010 if Europe meets its targets to increase energy from biomass.

The “Bioenergy Education and Training Pavilion” offers universities a one-of-a-kind opportunity to promote their course at the 15th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition from 7-11 May 2007. It is the largest bioenergy event in the world, with over 1,200 participants from 70 countries expected to attend.

To take advantage of this offer, the programme(s) must be devoted to bioenergy, and universities simply have to:

- Reserve a place for your poster in the pavilion to Crystal Luxmore
- Provide a A0 size poster describing your activities
- Provide suitable literature for visitors to take away
Bioenergy NoE will organise and set up the stand and provide personnel to greet visitors.

The pavilion has limited exhibition space. To secure a place, any university interested in taking part should contact Crystal Luxmore – c.s.luxmore@aston.ac.uk – to express their interest by 28th February 2007.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
