Let the solar wind blow

2015 | Action ES1005

How does the varying solar wind affect the Earth’s climate? Two scientists (Jean Lilensten from CNRS in Grenoble, and Laure Lefèvre, from the Royal Observatory of Belgium) discuss this topic. This movie was produced by TOSCA (Towards a more complete assessment of the impact of solar variability on climate), a multidisciplinary European network of scientists from 20 countries whose objective is to provide a better understanding of the hotly debated role of the Sun in climate change. For more information, and more movies, see http://www.tosca-cost.eu

Micro-core processing: a quick and easy method

2015 | Action FP1106

Launched by the DendroLab at Wageningen University (NL), the film is a production of COST Action sTReESS demonstrates micro-core sample processing (max 2mm diameter) and producing (non-permanent) thin sections for dendrochronological and wood anatomical research in a quick, easy and inexpensive way.

The script is based on the protocol written by Lena Wegner (MSc student, Wageningen University, NL).

When the Sun goes wild

2015 | Action ES1005

What are the manifestations of solar activity? Two scientists (Nicole Vilmer, from the Observatory of Paris, France, and Laure Lefèvre, from the Royal Observatory of Belgium) discuss this topic. This movie was produced by COST action TOSCA (Towards a more complete assessment of the impact of solar variability on climate), a multidisciplinary European network of scientists from 20 countries whose objective is to provide a better understanding of the hotly debated role of the Sun in climate change.

COST Workshop on Social Robotics

2013

The future concept and reality of Social Robotics: Challenges, Perception and Applications – Role of Social Robotics in current and future society

Researchers have exerted considerable efforts to advance the robotic technologies as well as to understand their social implications. As a result, robotics is now a highly articulated field with various types of robots already assisting numerous areas of human activity. Despite their increasing significance and relevance, the general public tends to think that robots still belong to the world of science fiction and research laboratories.

Wood Sample Preparation for Microscopic Analysis

2015 | Action FP1106

This demonstration was produced by the Department of Wood Science and Technology, University Ljubljana (Slovenia), in cooperation with the Slovenian Forest Institute and the Department of Geography and Regional Planning, University Zaragoza (Spain).

The film demonstrates how to process high-quality permanent thin sections for xylem and phloem formation studies following the embedding in paraffin methodology.
The script is based on the protocol written by Peter Prislan from the Department of Wood Science and Technology, University Ljubljana (Slovenia).
