Unlike the European Commission, the European Parliament assesses REACH inadequate to handle manufactured nanomaterials and calls on the Commission, among other things, to propose reviews of all relevant legislation within two years. What might be the consequences of this non-binding report; is it just canvassing or a true turnaround on this issue?
A nanotechnology over-the-counter prostate cancer test kit could be coming to a pharmacy near you, thanks to the collaborative work of a University of Central Florida chemist and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando researchers.
SCHOTT Solar, a leading photovoltaics manufacturer, entered into a 3 year research partnership with IMEC, Europe?s leading independent nanoelectronics research center. SCHOTT Solar joins IMEC's newly launched silicon photovoltaics industrial affiliation program.
For the materials research community, all roads will lead to the Gaithersburg, Md., headquarters of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) during the week of June 21, 2009, when the agency hosts two major international meetings.
European research ministers have agreed on a legal framework for the establishment of European research infrastructures. The decision paves the way for the creation of world class infrastructures that should help Europe to take the lead in a wide range of research fields.
Revolutionary ultrasonic nanotechnology that could allow scientists to see inside a patient?s individual cells to help diagnose serious illnesses is being developed by researchers at The University of Nottingham.
The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology), today announced projects to help science graduates expand their professional and personal skills so they can make a successful transition from the classroom to the workplace.
In nature, trees pull vast amounts of water from their roots up to their leaves hundreds of feet above the ground through capillary action, but now scientists have created a simple slab of metal that lifts liquid using the same principle - but does so at a speed that would make nature envious.
Waeren Solarzellen durchsichtig, liessen sie sich auch auf Fensterscheiben und Hausfassaden anbringen. Physikalische Werkstoffmodellierung hilft dabei, passende Materialien fuer transparente Elektronik zu entwickeln und so die Basis fuer durchsichtige Solarzellen zu legen.
