NANOPINION will provide a multi-tasking and enlivening online science-technology-social media-based platform for learning, information, outreach, dialogue and monitoring for young people, general public and consumer opinion on NT, realising the need for enhanced communication and dialogue between science and society for successful technology development and societal acceptance. A central dialogue arena of both physical and virtual aspects will be created to establish a dynamic outreach and dialogue model that will address the public in the high street via street knowledge and opinion labs, and other target groups in a variety of interactions in live events, online project portal, and web 2.0 tools. Controversial issues will be discussed on range of channels in order to establish a trustworthy and informed dialogue with the public. The engagements will be monitored continuously, and citizens opinions of NT will be gathered and traced using validated online and offline tools, thus providing clear direction and challenges driven by the citizens opinion regarding communication, NT fields, regulation, governance, research, social implications and education of NT. Past FP6/7 projects will be extensively used as prime knowledge, information and education resources for the project. NANOPINION will contribute to awareness and interest raising in the realm of NT, by engaging all age groups in the wider public in informing and discussion surrounding NT. We aim for the project to serve as an access bridge between FP7 and FP8 thus provides the EC with insights for policy framing concerning NT. The NANOPINION takes the debate to the outdoor arena dealing with tough to reach audience, that usually do not participate in science debates. Also, The project is going to offer experimental NT curriculum for high school that will carried out in EU, Associated countries and Russia. This curriculum will ne used for a future bacaloriate/ A level/ matriculation program of study NT.

The NANOCHANNELS partners have created a programme of campaigns and events, designed to engage a wide range of stakeholder groups in an open debate of ELSA issues raised by developments in nanotechnology; a vital step to build a public consensus in nanotechnology issues. The project partners are all experienced professionals from a wide range of disciplines, including major European newspapers, leading educationalists and polling specialists. Their combined expertise has enabled an well targeted, effective programme to be prepared. The coordinator and two other partners are leading the successful FP7 NANOYOU project, which aims to inform and engage European youth in NT issues. This experience has been the starting point for the NANOCHANNELS project. The campaign and events programme designed by the partners will use a range of media tools selected to reach a wide range of different stakeholder groups. Traditional media, including press and radio, and youth-oriented, web-based tools will be combined with live events to engage the lay public, scientists, NGOs, educators and other stakeholders. A series of debates will take place in schools throughout the EU, and a high-profile round table will be held. A unique feature of the programme will be the inclusion of school students in producing much of the media content. They will be mentored by professional journalists who will produce the balance of the material to ensure suitability for all stakeholders. Throughout the project, a series of surveys and polls will take place. Changes in opinion that take place after the campaign will be recorded. This data will be compiled and used to assess public attitudes, and determine the emerging public consensus. At the end of the project, a report will be issued to the Commission which will provide recommendations for: creating a process to facilitate better governance of NT issues a future education policy EU action plan for nano technology and action plans

An LED bay light includes a heat pipe module, a light condenser and at least one LED light emitting module. The heat pipe module is coupled to a side of the light condenser, and both are made of a thermally conductive material. The light condenser includes a top plate and at least one reflecting plate. The LED light emitting module is installed on a side of the top plate and covered by an inner side of the reflecting plate, and the inner side of the reflecting plate is coated with a color layer. The LED bay light dissipates heat produced from the LED light emitting module by the heat pipe module and the light condenser simultaneously to improve the heat dissipation efficiency effectively, and the light of the LED bay light can change its color through the reflection from the reflecting plate or the color layer.

The present invention relates to a heat sink of a large area, in which a heat-dissipating body is further provided in its limited space. The method for manufacturing a fin includes the steps of providing a fin, cutting the fin to form a foldable piece thereon, folding back the foldable piece to be overlapped on the fin and form an accommodating hole, and punching the folded piece and the fin to form two overlapped through-holes. The fin, the heat-dissipating body and heat pipes are assembled together to obtain the heat sink. Since the fins and the heat-dissipating body dissipate the heat of a heat-generating element simultaneously, the heat-dissipating efficiency of the heat sink can be improved.

A heat pipe assembly includes a number of heat pipes and a fixing seat. Each of the heat pipes includes an evaporating section and at least a condensing section. A bottom of the evaporating section of each of the heat pipes is flat and has a flat heat absorbing surface. The evaporating sections of each of the heat pipes are parallel to and adjoin with each other, whereby the flat heat absorbing surfaces of the evaporating sections of the heat pipes being coplanar and adjoining with each other. A top surface of the evaporating section of each of the heat pipes has a top edge. The fixing seat, as a molded one-piece member, combines with the top edge of the evaporating section of each of the heat pipes, whereby the heat absorbing surfaces of the evaporating sections of the heat pipes are coplanar and adjoin with each other.

The Open Data INcubator for Europe (ODINE) project will set up an environment to support and advice SMEs and start-ups in creating commercial added value from open data. Drawing on the experience from key players in the consortium including Wayra (an incubator/accelerator), Fraunhofer IAIS and the ODI (both data facilitators and incubators), Telefonica (providing computing infrastructure and strong links to data protection and privacy stakeholders), and the University of Southampton (renowned for its open data research and home of Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Sir Nigel Shadbolt), we plan to establish a EU-wide, industry-focused network of open data companies around Europe, promoted and guided by the trusted authorities and commentators at the Guardian and OKFN. To achieve this we shall take an approach that follows best in class practice for incubators and which makes it as a simple and smooth as possible for SMEs to apply for help. We will offer: (i) a transparent, fair, and efficient proposal process for SMEs and start-ups, based around Wayra, IAIS and ODIs existing and successful processes; (ii) a network of European open data SMEs and start-ups; (iii) initial investment in these companies through an open call; (iv) incubation and mentoring by ODI, Fraunhofer and Wayra academies, with the possibility of acceleration via Wayra, Telefonica Ventures, and Fraunhofer Venture; (v) access to data services and computing infrastructure from IAIS, ODI, OKFN and Telefonica; (vi) expert support from serial entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and coaching from business schools; as well as (vii) high visibility through promotion of success stories by the Guardian, ODI and the OKFN. A successful open data incubator will significantly help Europe to regain leadership in technical innovation, balanced with the ethical treatment of data for which the public are crying out, and to create skilled jobs that help Europe become more productive and competitive in the 21st Century.
