    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Geothermal Technologies Program (GTP) is committed to developing and deploying a portfolio of innovative technologies for clean, domestic power generation. The Geothermal Technologies Program researches, develops, and validates innovative and cost-competitive technologies and tools to locate, access, and develop geothermal resources in the United States. We work in partnership with industry, academia, and DOE's national laboratories on research and development activities focused on these five areas: Enhanced Geothermal Systems Hydrothermal and Resource Confirmation Low-Temperature Resources Systems Analysis Technology Validation Why it Matters Geothermal energy, a virtually untapped energy resource derived from the earth's heat, is more vital today than ever—it supplies clean, renewable power around the clock, emits little or no greenhouse gases, and takes a very small environmental footprint to develop. By developing, demonstrating, and deploying innovative technologies, GTP's efforts are helping stimulate the growth of the geothermal industry within the renewable energy sector and encouraging quick adoption of technologies by the public and private sectors.

    SciPy (pronounced "Sigh Pie") is open-source software for mathematics, science, and engineering. It is also the name of a very popular conference on scientific programming with Python. The SciPy library depends on NumPy, which provides convenient and fast N-dimensional array manipulation. The SciPy library is built to work with NumPy arrays, and provides many user-friendly and efficient numerical routines such as routines for numerical integration and optimization. Together, they run on all popular operating systems, are quick to install, and are free of charge. NumPy and SciPy are easy to use, but powerful enough to be depended upon by some of the world's leading scientists and engineers. If you need to manipulate numbers on a computer and display or publish the results, give SciPy a try!

    Science is the academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and is considered one of the world's most prestigious scientific journals.[1][2] The peer-reviewed journal, first published in 1880, is circulated weekly and has a print subscriber base of around 130,000. Because institutional subscriptions and online access serve a larger audience, its estimated readership is one million people.[3] The major focus of the journal is publishing important original scientific research and research reviews, but Science also publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy and other matters of interest to scientists and others who are concerned with the wide implications of science and technology. Although most scientific journals focus on a specific field, Science and its rival Nature cover the full range of scientific disciplines. Science's impact factor for 2009 was 29.747 (as measured by the Institute for Scientific Information). Although it is the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, membership in the AAAS is not required to publish in Science. Papers are accepted from authors around the world. Competition to publish in Science is very intense, as an article published in such a highly cited journal can lead to attention and career advancement for the authors. Fewer than 10% of articles submitted to the editors are accepted for publication and all research articles are subject to peer review before they appear in the journal. Science is based in Washington, D.C., United States, with a second office in Cambridge, England.

    Entsprechend der Mission der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft, Beiträge zur Lösung großer und drängender Fragen von Gesellschaft, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft zu leisten, hat das Thema Open Access eine signifikante Bedeutung für die Helmholtz-Zentren. Der freie Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen fördert Leistungsfähigkeit und Innovation: Open Access verbessert die Informationsversorgung der Wissenschaft weltweit, erleichtert den Transfer von Forschungsergebnissen in die Wirtschaft und ermöglicht der Gesellschaft den einfachen Zugang zu Wissen und Information. Die Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft gehörte 2003 zu den Erstunterzeichnern der "Berliner Erklärung". Diese Position wurde durch die Mitgliederversammlung ausdrücklich bestätigt: „Publikationen aus der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft sollen künftig ohne Ausnahme kostenlos zugänglich sein, soweit nicht ausdrückliche Vereinbarungen mit Verlagen und anderen dem entgegenstehen.“ (Beschluss der Mitgliederversammlung vom 27.09.2004) Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft sind als Herausgeberinnen und Herausgeber von Open-Access-Zeitschriften aktiv und speichern Ihre Arbeiten in Repositorien (frei zugänglichen Online- Volltextdatenbanken), die von Bibliotheken- und Rechenzentren betrieben werden. Seit 2005 unterstützt das Helmholtz Open Access Projekt die Zentren bei der Umsetzung von Open Access. Einen Schwerpunkt der Aktivitäten nimmt das Themenfeld Forschungsdaten ein. Helmholtz-Zentren stellen sich der Herausforderung des zeitgemäßen Umgangs mit Forschungsdaten unter Berücksichtigung der Nachnutzung und der langfristigen Erhaltung.

    Free thinkers. Curious people collaborating across borders. Pioneers pushing back the boundaries of what is possible. Teams building upon the work of others. People trying things just to see what happens. Those are all phrases that could be applied to KDE - or to scientists. The scientific mindset shares a lot with that of free software and so it is no surprise that there are plenty of scientists within our community, nor that KDE has some strong applications in the world of science.

      A consortium of research groups from ETH Zürich, EPF Lausanne, the Paul Scherrer Institute and the University of Bonn, collaborate in a comprehensive program of basic research on key aspects of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGSs), with a focus on the system to be developed in Basel in December 2006. The work will contribute to understanding and developing an alternative and sustainable energy resource free of CO2-emission. Novel observation techniques and new process-simulation tools will be developed, partly building on data provided as a major ‘in-kind’ contribution by the industrial developers of the Basel Project. The overall aim of the project is to better understand the relevant processes and improve the predictability of EGSs for more extensive use in Switzerland and worldwide.
