Description of the activities presented on the stand

NMR spectroscopy is a unique tool for the investigation of biological systems in aqueous solution. A Network exists between European Infrastructures, providing new hardware and software tools, and new "virtual" services to the scientific community. The stand features animations displaying the most advanced instrumentation and methodologies used in the field, and recent scientific achievements. The topics presented include: protein production, protein structure determination, intermolecular interactions, hardware development. Visitors will be able to try the web-based services and tools.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

Two closely related FPV-funded projects are exhibited. In the European Natural History Specimen Information Network (ENHSIN), a prototype has been developed for providing common Internet access to distributed information on biological and mineralogical specimens in European collections. In the Biological Collections Access Service for Europe (BioCASE), the ENHSIN prototype is being developed into an operational, pan-European system enabling users to access data in collections via a highly developed interface using a thesaurus of taxon names and geo-ecological terms.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

OPTICON is the co-ordination network for European optical and infrared astronomy. Its activities include co-ordinating the use and development of existing telescopes, promoting new innovative projects, including electronic virtual observatories and huge new facilities for the 21st century. OPTICON also promotes collaborative software projects across Europe, encourages transnational access and is developing strategies to enhance science education and career development for young astronomers. OPTICON works closely with RADIONET, the radio astronomy co-ordination network.
