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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
