NanoCode publishes synthesis report of stakeholder survey on EU Code of Conduct

The NanoCode Synthesis Report on its Stakeholder CoC Survey (pdf) provides the findings of the international, quantitative and qualitative NanoCode survey about the European Code of Conduct for Responsible Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Research (EU-CoC). The results summarised in this report give insights into stakeholder's patterns of awareness, their expectations, attitudes and appraisals. The survey analyses the degree of compliance and commitment, identifies recommendations for the communication, possible incentives, disincentives and monitoring of the EU-CoC.

The magnetism - and mystery - of superconductors

Exactly 100 years ago today, physicist Kamerlingh Onnes cooled mercury to 4.2 degrees Kelvin, or -450 Fahrenheit, and discovered that it conducted an electric current perfectly - no electricity was lost as heat or friction. This phenomenon is called superconductivity.
