FramingNano is an FP7 funded two-year project aimed at building a deliberative process amongst nanotechnology stakeholders in order to inform the development of a future EU governance framework for the responsible and safe development of nanotechnologies.
The purpose of this worldwide program is to support the education of the new generations of artists and scientists and to promote the art-science-technology intersections and NanoArt for a better youth development.
University of Michigan engineers are offering a 16-piece lab-on-a-chip kit that brings microfluidic devices to the scientific masses. The kit cuts the costs involved and the time it takes to make a microfluidic device from days to minutes.
he newly formed Romanian Nano-Medicine Institute has named Dr. Alex Biris chief scientist at the Nanotechnology Center at UALR, as its honorary president. He also serves as a founding member of the organization.
Researchers invented a new material that will make cars even more efficient, by converting heat wasted through engine exhaust into electricity. The material has twice the efficiency of anything currently on the market, and could also work in power generators and heat pumps.
Recent progress in dye-sensitized solar cells research and development, which use innovative light-harvesting dye to improve the optical absorption coefficient of the stained nanostructured electrodes, might color our dimming future energy security with a tint of rose, despite the looming depletion of fossil fuels.
New-media art installations that caution visitors about a future when books are relics of the past, and nanoparticles represent a pervasive threat to human health, will be on display starting August 4 on the campus of the University of California, San Diego.
