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: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
