HHL Wins Third Leading-Edge Cluster Competition by BMBF

20.01.2012
BioEconomy Cluster in central Germany will obtain up to EUR 40m in the next five years from the BMBF /// HHL Dean Professor Andreas Pinkwart: "HHL is looking forward to the exciting collaboration with natural science and business practice."

Together with about 40 partner companies and half a dozen research institutions from Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, HHL won the Leading-Edge Cluster Competition by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with the "BioEconomy" project.

The BioEconomy Cluster in central Germany, which will obtain up to EUR 40m from the BMBF, focuses on the integrated material and energetic use of non-food biomass for the production of materials, chemicals, energy carriers and products from new materials. A cross-cluster material flow management as well as the development, scaling and implementation of production procedures by the industry allow for the optimization of value added from biomass.

Professor Andreas Pinkwart, Dean of HHL, says: "A growing earth population with finite resources requires new forms of sustainable economic activities in order to help secure jobs and prosperity in the future. HHL is looking forward to the exciting collaboration with natural science and business practice. "

Supported by the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung - UFZ, the Deutsches BiomasseForschungsZentrum as well as InfraLeuna GmbH, HHL's Stiftungsfonds Deutsche Bank Chair of Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, Heinz Nixdorf Chair of IT-based Logistics and the Chair of Marketing Management are responsible for the accompanying research within the cluster focusing on the development of competitive strategies and control tools. HHL scientists are involved in the Material Flow Management, Innovation and Marketing Management as well as Governance and Cluster Management projects.

HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management

HHL is a university-level institution and ranks amongst the leading international Business Schools. The goal of the oldest business school in German-speaking Europe is to educate effective, responsible and entrepreneurially minded leaders. In addition to HHL’s international focus the combination of theory and practice plays a key role. HHL stands out for its excellent teaching, its clear research focus, its effective knowledge transfer into practice as well as its outstanding student services. The school offers an 18-month full-time (24-month part-time) Master program in Management leading to the degree Master of Science (M.Sc.). In addition, HHL has an 18-month full-time (24-month part-time) MBA Program for professionals. An 18-month Global Executive MBA, the 24-month Euro*MBA, as well as a three-year doctoral program, which can also be completed by professionals with the appropriate qualifications, tops off HHL’s portfolio of degree programs. HHL’s subsidiary HHL Executive GmbH offers company-specific and open enrollment executive education. In April 2004 HHL received the highly-respected accreditation by AACSB International. The maintenance of accreditation for a further five years was granted in April 2009.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
