Science-On-Stage Festival showcases Europe's new thinking on Science teaching
Science's many applications
We are living relatively better, longer and happier thanks to science.
In the sphere of health, science promises to fight cancer; the unique properties of synchrotron light can help improve traditional X-ray techniques and open the door to developing completely new methods of imaging and therapy.
The study of proteins is essential for unravelling the complex process of life. X-ray crystallography using synchrotron light is an extremely powerful technique for revealing arrangement of atoms in proteins, which is the key to understanding how they work.
Neutrons have the singular capacity to penetrate materials without causing damage; they can help us understand the process at work inside a material when it is damaged or transformed. This could also have many applications in industry.
Research in nanotechnology certainly looks set to revolutionise consumer electronics and the future, paving the way for such things as quantum computers and flexible ultraflat screens.
