In a sense, the hottest part of this issue of The Polish Science Voice is an interview with Prof. Jacek Jania, a Polish ice expert who studies the glaciers of Spitsbergen, an island in the Arctic Ocean. Jania is chairman of the Polar Research Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences and head of the geomorphology unit at the Earth Sciences Department of the University of Silesia in Katowice. In the interview, he talks about the implications of global warming.

As every cyclist knows, derailleur gears need to be maintained from time to time so that the chain properly shifts from one set of sprocket wheels to another. With time, "free play" sets in though and even the best mechanisms of this kind fail to work precisely. This shortcoming can be eliminated thanks to an invention by a Polish engineer who has filed a international patent application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).
Two Polish centers of excellence have received funds under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Program to develop research in biotechnology and molecular biology.
