Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, published today in the international scientific periodical EMBO Journal, reveals a novel molecular mechanism required for the degeneration of nerve cells.
Best Paper Award at the EHB 2011 international conference to researchers of the Institute of Computer Science of FORTH
In the December issue of Optics and Photonics News, the Optical Society of America highlighted exciting and significant research findings that characterized the year 2011 in Optics and Photonics. Among these annual highlights (see video), the work of the FORTH-IESL, research group of Dr Stavros Pissadakis, focused on the development of Magnetofluidically Tunable Microstructured Optical Fiber Grating Devices was included.
Eurecca tackles three key questions for the IT industry: Today's multicore processors are not being utilized in a sufficiently intelligent way. They get too hot and run slowly because they are used inefficiently. At the same time, transistors are becoming so small that they will ultimately become unreliable. Major European research organizations are now attempting to create a revolution in computer architecture.
Nursing and Medical Applications (under the product name ICS-M), which are part of the software suite "Integrated Care Solutions" developed by the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), have been certified with the Seal of Quality Electronic Health Record (EHR) Level 2 (EuroRec EHR Quality Seal Level 2) by the European Institute for Health Records EuroRec (http://www.eurorec.org/).
Achievements: Professor Spyros Pandis, Deputy Director of FORTH/ICE-HT, earns an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant for
Dr. Spyros Pandis, Professor of the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Patras, and collaborating faculty member and Deputy Director of the Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes of the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH/ICE-HT) has recently been awarded the prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Investigator Grant for his research proposal entitled "Atmospheric Organic Particulate Matter, Air Quality and Climate Change Studies (ATMOPACS)".
Contribution to understanding the mechanisms underlying memory formation and coding in the brain via the use of computational models
Work in the Computational Biology Laboratory of IMBB-FORTH, which is headed by Dr. Panayiota Poirazi, has used computational models to show that a single neuronal cell in the brain is capable of detecting spatiotemporal differences of incoming signals and encoding them into its response pattern.
The first worldwide exhibition of interactive systems dedicated to ancient Macedonia, developed in cooperation by the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki (AMTH) and the Institute of Computer Science, Foundation for Research & Technology-Hellas (ICS-FORTH), opens the doors on Monday, 1st November 2010 at AMTH.
Contribution of FORTH/ICE-HT to the groundbreaking discovery of Graphene - the perfect atomic lattice
The close collaboration of FORTH/ICE-HT with the 2010 Nobel Prize Laureates in Physics is another example of the forefront scientific research conducted at the Institute in the field of nanomaterials and their applications.
A significant success for FORTH: Four RTD proposals in the field of fuel cells and hydrogen production have recently been selected for funding by the European Commission
The Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes of the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH/ICE-HT) has recently received a new distinction at European level, as the European Committee selected for funding four (4) proposals in the field of fuel cells and hydrogen production. This is a field in which a large group of FORTH/ICE-HT researchers focuses its efforts.
