Ceremony marks the transfer of the Euroscience Open Forum from Barcelona to Turin for 2010

23.07.2008
The official investiture of Turin as the next city to host the Euroscience Open Forum in 2010 took place today in Barcelona where ESOF2008 is now drawing to a close.

At a ceremony held at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion at the Fira in Barcelona, Jordi Hereu the Major of Barcelona and Enric Banda the ESOF2008 Barcelona President passed on the honour of hosting ESOF2010 to Turin’s Major Sergio Chiamparino, and President of ESOF2010 Enrico Predazzi. The event will be held in Turin, the Piedmontese capital city, from 2 to 7 July 2010.

ESOF2010 will bring together leading organisations from 40 European countries and over 2000 participants, including scientists, teachers, the media, politicians, businessmen and the public, to focus on research and scientific innovation. Turin has an important role as a ‘crossroad of innovation’ – a city long involved in bringing people together and exchanging views on societal policies, supporting research, and especially in engaging young people in science.

The transfer ceremony featured 40 Italian students, who won awards in the ‘Catch the Bus Science’ scheme, media partner ‘La Stampa’, and the Turin Local Organising Committee which is a partnership involving CentroScienza Onlus, Agorà Scienza – University of Turin, Compagnia di San Paolo. A‘logo puzzle’ manoeuvred by 18 enthusiastic science explainers took part in the transfer of the ESOF commitment.

Im Focus: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
