Conference about the Green Belt, Juni 3rd and 4th, Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany
“Perspectives for biological and cultural diversity along the European Green Belt” is the title of the 3rd scientific conference of GreenNet on the 3rd and 4th of June in Eisenach. The 3rd scientific GreenNet-conference deals with successful initiatives and projects around the green belt, a corridor which emerged from the division of Europe after the Cold War.
In the INTERREG project "GREENNET - Promoting the ecological network in the European Green Belt" the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt works together with eleven project partners from Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Slovakia.
The university is involved with the department of "Landscape planning" (Prof. Dr. Ilke Marshal) and the Institute of "Transport and Spatial Planning" (Prof. Dr. Matthias Gather).
On the 1st conference day the results of the project will be presented with regard to protection strategies, lobbying activities and success stories. Furthermore the Thuringian Minister for European affairs Jürgen Gnauck could be engaged for a welcoming speech.
Further keynote speaker are Pia Bucella from the European Commission and Prof. Marangon from the University in Udine. For the following panel discussion well known representatives as Prof. Thöne and Prof. Weiger could be gained.
On the second day after a keynote from the German Association for Landcare (DVL) good examples of landscape action and successful measures along the European Green Belt will be discussed.
Therefore the following topics will be presented:
• the Thuringian Nature Conservation Foundation in terms of the supervision of 3,800 ha of the Green Belt in Germany
• the economic importance of the Green Belt in the Italian Julian Prealps
• the activities of Southern Burgenland in Austria
• saving species-rich meadows at the river Kutschenitza which marks the state border between Austria and Slovenia
• possible new forms of land use along the Green Belt in Slovenia
• Biodiversity in the Bulgarian Osogovo region
• transboundary cooperation in the Balkans
• the international UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Mura-Drava-Danube
• Czech school expeditions to the Green Belt as a reminder of history and a chance for the future
• environmental education at the German Green Belt
• and finally: documentation, information and education about the European Green Belt
Further presentations as Dr. Bongartz from the Thuringian Ministry of Construction, Land Development and Transport (TMBLV) and Stefan Kemper of the German rural space network (DVS) and a final discussion will complete the second day.
The working language of the conference will be English.
Interested parties are invited to sign up till May 30th. The registration form can be found on http://www.greennet-project.eu as well as on the flyer of the conference program.
On the 3rd of June, 5:15 pm, there will be a press conference at the Steigenberger Hotel Thüringer Hof, Karlsplatz 11 in Eisenach.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
