14.08.2014

- ESMT project partner of GreenTec Awards 2015-2017
- Prize awarded to most ecological and sustainable technical innovations

ESMT European School of Management and Technology is a project partner for the GreenTec Awards 2015. The Berlin-based business school thus joins the ranks of partners from business and science supporting Europe’s largest environmental award.

ESMT faculty member and energy expert Christoph Burger is one of the 60 jury members who will evaluate all entries to the competition. The cooperation between ESMT and the GreenTec Awards encompasses the next three years until 2017.

The GreenTec Awards will be presented on May 29, 2015 for the eighth time. Submissions should be highly innovative projects or products that bridge the gap between sustainability and profitability.

In 2015 projects may be submitted in one of 13 different categories by individuals or teams from Germany or abroad. The application deadline for the GreenTec Awards 2015 is September 1, 2014.

Christoph Burger commented, “ESMT places great emphasis on sustainability and innovation in research and in teaching. The GreenTec Awards honor ideas that connect these two areas, so this partnership is a great fit for both sides. I am especially looking forward to the innovative projects that participants submit.”

About the GreenTec Awards
On May 29, 2015, the ceremony awarding Europe’s largest environmental and business prize will take place for the eighth time. Following the tradition, a green carpet will be rolled out again for the roughly 1,000 guests from all over the globe. In the past guests on stage included celebrities like Franziska van Almsick (former champion swimmer, founder of an association), Rea Garvey (singer and songwriter), Sir Bob Geldof (singer and political activist), Morten Harket (former front singer a-ha), Mareile Höppner (presenter ARD), Franziska Knuppe (topmodel), David Mayer de Rothschild (environmental activist), Christoph Metzelder (former football international and donator), Christiane Paul (actress), Hans-Joachim Watzke (CEO Borussia Dortmund), Sarah Wiener (chef) and many more. The initiative is supported by Peter Altmaier, Head of the Federal Chancellery and Federal Minister for Special Tasks, and economy representatives such as 50Hertz, Airbus, Deutsche Telekom, Ecover, Fraport, Lufthansa, Nokia, Tetra Pak, TÜV NORD, Universal Music, Varta, Vattenfall, Wilo, as well as institutions like DLR, DWI, Fraunhofer, NOW and WWF, and associations/organizations like ADAC, BDE, DWA, VAK, VDA, VKU, VDMA, ZVEI. The GreenTec Awards are held to promote environmental and economic commitment as well as a passion for technology. The initiators and hosts Marco Voigt and Sven Krüger support this cause with enthusiasm. Over 100 partners, more than 60 ambassadors and 40 exhibitors enable this extraordinary event.

Im Focus: Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...

Im Focus: Continental tug-of-war - until the rope snaps

Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases

Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...

Scaffolding and specialised workers help with the delivery – Heidelberg biochemists gain new insights into biogenesis

A type of scaffolding on which specialised workers ply their trade helps in the manufacturing process of the two subunits from which the ribosome – the protein...

Im Focus: New protocol enables analysis of metabolic products from fixed tissues

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.

In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...

Im Focus: Computer Simulation Renders Transient Chemical Structures Visible

Chemists at the University of Basel have succeeded in using computer simulations to elucidate transient structures in proteins. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, the researchers set out how computer simulations of details at the atomic level can be used to understand proteins’ modes of action.

Using computational chemistry, it is possible to characterize the motion of individual atoms of a molecule. Today, the latest simulation techniques allow...
