3rd GEOTECHNOLOGIEN Keynote lecture

30.03.2012
The Research and Development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN invites to its 3rd Keynote Lecture at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals”.

The worldwide demand for raw materials is continuously increasing. Apart from fossil fuels, a number of non-ferrous minerals are becoming more and more important for different industrial sectors, particularly for the high-tech industry. Caused by the shortage of specific minerals and their increasing prices the mining industry has been reactivated in various countries. Furthermore, agreements on raw material supply are of major interest, especially for developed countries.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals” during the EGU conference in Vienna.

The talk takes place on April 24, 7 pm, room 13, Austria Center Vienna.

The key note lecture is an initiative of the research and development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN, a geoscientific programme funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

To learn more about the R&D programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN please visit us at our booth “Research in Germany” in the entrance hall (Booth No 25).

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
