HHL Wins Third Leading-Edge Cluster Competition by BMBF
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.
