Mainpage. At the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) we explore materials and complex material systems that help to face current and future challenges, such as the energy transition - “Energiewende”.
One of the HZB’s research emphases is on materials for thin-film photovoltaics and for the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy carriers (e.g. molecular hydrogen). To be able to study material structures and processes in detail, the HZB operates two separate large-scale research facilities – the neutron source BER II and the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II – used by some 3,000 guest scientists from all around the World every year.
At both facilities, HZB teams have developed in some cases unparalleled instruments and are continuing to work on increasing their measurement precision to allow for new insights to be gleaned. Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore. About CERI. Overview The Canadian Energy Research Institute is an independent, not-for-profit research establishment created through a partnership of industry, academia, and government in 1975.
Our mission is to provide relevant, independent, objective economic research in energy and related environmental issues. We strive to build bridges between scholarship and policy, combining the insights of scientific research, economic analysis, and practical experience. Careers. X-Ray Diffraction Laboratory (XRD-Lab) The IMDEA Energy Institute has a modern X-ray diffraction laboratory with two advanced X-ray diffraction powder tools with multiple accessories that cover a wide range of materials and possible applications of this technique.
This laboratory is a member belonging to the Network of Laboratories Redlab with registration No 369. The laboratory has all the necessary elements to perform X-Ray diffraction experiments under Bragg-Brentano and transmission configurations with standard and capillaries holders. Further analysis can be made with low angle XRay diffraction, a fundamental tool for the analysis of mesostructured materials, and grazing incidence X-Ray diffraction for the study of thin layers. Open Source Drug Discovery. The Five Plus Project: How better-off South Africans are helping to fight poverty. There is a common mantra among some better off South Africans that somehow by simply paying tax they are contributing to the greater wellbeing of society and that this is enough.
Often the comment will be followed by the gripe that it not the taxpayer’s fault that leaders and government officials squander this public money through nepotism, mismanagement and corruption or that the distribution of lottery funds is often skewed towards the politically connected. It is an abstract, narrow view; perhaps a defensive one (and a cop-out) that serves to distance the human component and the real suffering that surrounds us and that is so starkly evident in our day-to-day encounters in this country. Another view, perhaps, is that the scale of the problem and the intervention required is so huge that it might feel overwhelming or impossible.

Research projects and collaborations. Science Gallery is currently participating in three research projects funded by the European Commission under the 'Seventh Framework Programme'.
The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) is the European Union's main instrument for supporting collaborative research and pioneering educational development and innovation in science, engineering and technology. Partnering key scientific and educational spaces across Europe. Initiatives and ideas generated within FP7 projects are not bound by geographic borders and benefit from a diversity of opinion and cultural influences.
Studiolab is a 3-year Europe-wide initiative that merges the studio with the research lab. Présentation - 30,000 men and women, joining forces to build a world-class campus.
