The Conference is open for contributions and the Call for Abstracts is now released.
The EPOS project establishes a network of leading European institutions that are active in the field of policy evaluation with a focus on environment and sustainability.
The network creates a platform to discuss and compare different methods of policy evaluation; it aims to strengthen socio-ecological aspects in evaluation. In discussions with both researchers as well as practitioners in consulting, politics and administration the conference in summer 2009 wants to add to the understanding of sustainability evaluation by addressing the following questions: What is sustainability evaluation's contribution to policy development and implementation? How should sustainability evaluations be designed to affect political decision-making? How can one strengthen sustainability goals and impacts in policy evaluation and assessment? How can the quality of sustainability evaluations be improved?
Networking is an important goal of the conference. Therefore, the program of the conference is open for contributions from European scientist and practitioners. The Call for Abstracts is now published and can be downloaded on the project-homepage (http://www.ecologic.eu/soef/epos/download/EPOS_Call_for_Abstracts.pdf). Submissions are possible until January, 31st, 2009.
The conference is organised by the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IOEW) (http://www.ioew.de) and Ecologic Institute for International and European Environmental Policy (http://www.ecologic.eu). EPOS (Evaluating Policies for Sustainable Development) is a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of socio-ecological research (SOEF). The main focus of the project is policy evaluation with a focus on sustainability issues. Together with nine partners across Europe, the network is concerned with the evaluation of policies, political strategies, programmes, and instruments.
11. BusinessForum21-Kongress „Aktives Schadenmanagement"

Internationale Konferenz zum Biomining ab Sonntag in Freiberg

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.
Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...
Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
