Innovation Prize 2013 by the Council of German BioRegions

04.12.2012
The Council of German BioRegions announces the successful „Innovation Prize of the BioRegions in Germany 2013“.
Altogether, 6,000 Euros are honoured to ideas from life science research projects with application aims. In 2013, the BioRegio Regensburg with its office BioPark Regensburg GmbH will organise the award. The awards ceremony will take place at the “German Biotechnology Days” from 14th to 15th May 2013 in Stuttgart. Deadline for application is February, 15, 2013.

The three equal prizes of the „Innovation Prize of the BioRegions in Germany“ with 2,000 Euros each will be awarded to inventors with outstanding, innovative ideas for modern biotechnology. Life science projects with application aims and high implementation potential will be decorated. This is supposed to show to the public the enormous capacity of ideas from life science research.

One task of the competition is not only to introduce to the public the fantastic science performed in Germany, but also to give some understanding of the practical use of it to the community. Last but not least, the prizes with a total of 6,000 Euros are aimed to promote the transfer of knowledge, novel technologies and innovations from research to economic implementation.

The Innovation Prize is assumed to stimulate scientists to establish their inventions or products within commerce, that is to generate sustainable solutions via transfer of the technology. Therefore, the prize not only appreciates the innovation itself, but also the impact of technology transfer from science to real economy.

The competition is addressed to holders or candidates of patents from academic and non-academic research institutions. The patents have to fit into the area of modern biotechnology. The awards ceremony will take place at the “German Biotechnology Days” from 14th to 15th May 2013 in Stuttgart.

Further information and application forms are available in german language. Nonetheless, applications in english are also accepted.
Please address your application directely to the BioPark Regensburg GmbH (schuierer-wenzel@biopark-regensburg.de).

Application forms are available as download under: www.biodeutschland.org/innovationspreis.html

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...
