- 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.”

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...
A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...
In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.
These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...
Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.
For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...
It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.
Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
