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: Restoring vision by gene therapy

Latest scientific findings give hope for people with incurable retinal degeneration

Humans rely dominantly on their eyesight. Losing vision means not being able to read, recognize faces or find objects. Macular degeneration is one of the major...

Im Focus: Small Protein, Big Impact

In meningococci, the RNA-binding protein ProQ plays a major role. Together with RNA molecules, it regulates processes that are important for pathogenic properties of the bacteria.

Meningococci are bacteria that can cause life-threatening meningitis and sepsis. These pathogens use a small protein with a large impact: The RNA-binding...

Im Focus: K-State study reveals asymmetry in spin directions of galaxies

Research also suggests the early universe could have been spinning

An analysis of more than 200,000 spiral galaxies has revealed unexpected links between spin directions of galaxies, and the structure formed by these links...

Im Focus: New measurement exacerbates old problem

Two prominent X-ray emission lines of highly charged iron have puzzled astrophysicists for decades: their measured and calculated brightness ratios always disagree. This hinders good determinations of plasma temperatures and densities. New, careful high-precision measurements, together with top-level calculations now exclude all hitherto proposed explanations for this discrepancy, and thus deepen the problem.

Hot astrophysical plasmas fill the intergalactic space, and brightly shine in stellar coronae, active galactic nuclei, and supernova remnants. They contain...

Im Focus: Biotechnology: Triggered by light, a novel way to switch on an enzyme

In living cells, enzymes drive biochemical metabolic processes enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very ability which allows them to be used as catalysts in biotechnology, for example to create chemical products such as pharmaceutics. Researchers now identified an enzyme that, when illuminated with blue light, becomes catalytically active and initiates a reaction that was previously unknown in enzymatics. The study was published in "Nature Communications".

Enzymes: they are the central drivers for biochemical metabolic processes in every living cell, enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very...
