Innovation Prize 2013 by the Council of German BioRegions

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 (

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
