The Irish government has launched a major new strategy to maximise the scientific, economic and social potential of Ireland’s significant marine resources.
Sea Change: A Marine Knowledge, Research and Innovation Strategy for Ireland 2007-2013 will support a range of capability and capacity enhancements designed to exploit core scientific strengths and deliver new commercial opportunities and policy options.
As part of this strategy the recently announced Beaufort Marine Research Awards will deliver €20 million in research funds to establish world class marine research groups in five areas. The Beaufort Awards target research leaders of international standing and mobile early stage researchers from Ireland and abroad to fill the following posts:• 4 Principal Investigators (7 year Contracts)
The research groups/centres are located in five Institutions on the Island of Ireland (32 counties) and have demonstrated capacity to conduct innovative research and provide research training.
The following are the research groups/centres supported:
ECOSYSTEM APPROACH TO FISHERIES MANAGEMENT• Ecology & Evolution Research Cluster, School of Biological Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.
The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...
