ESMT partners with GreenTec Awards


- 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: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...

Im Focus: Quantum Simulation: A Better Understanding of Magnetism

Heidelberg physicists use ultracold atoms to imitate the behaviour of electrons in a solid

Researchers at Heidelberg University have devised a new way to study the phenomenon of magnetism. Using ultracold atoms at near absolute zero, they prepared a...
