“The aim for Mensa Heating I/S is to give café guests the opportunity to sit outside comfortably during most of the year. Up until now, they have frequently found themselves compelled to move inside due to the lack of outdoor heating. A Mensa Heating product will provide the guests with heat in a pleasant and easily obtainable way,” said Lars Vinter Pedersen from Mensa Heating.
“Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship are of enormous importance for our societies. Today and even more so tomorrow small and medium sized enterprises will provide for professional education and employment opportunities,” said Günter Verheugen, Vice-President of the European Commission, Responsible for Enterprise and Industry.
“Today’s society faces rising prices for the cost living, an energy crisis, globalization; therefore our entrepreneurs need to be more innovative then ever before in order to cope with the fierce global competition,” said Daniel Daianu, Member of the European Parliament and Honorary President of JA Romania.
57 young entrepreneurs representing 15 student companies from across Europe participated in the JA-YE Europe Enterprise Challenge 2008. The event took place in the European Parliament and was hosted by Mr Daniel Daianu and Ms Ramona Manescu, Members of the European Parliament. These are students aged 19 and over who are running a company as part of their higher education (college or university), under the mentoring of their professors and business volunteers. These young people are developing companies that offer real products and/or services and are dealing with the everyday problems of starting up. There are 25,000 students in the JA-YE Graduate Programme for Entrepreneurship in Europe this year and statistics show that more than 29% of these graduates will go on to succeed as fully-fledged entrepreneurs which is equivalent to approximately 7,250 enterprises.Awarding outstanding achievement
The second prize went to HENDIG from Norway which created a Shelf-Organizer, a tool which makes it easier and more efficient to tidy up shelves in grocery stores.
The third prize was awarded to HEYRA SB from Norway a leading manufacturer in small-sized high-end stereo systems which are user friendly and pure in style.
The European Parliament award went to team Vebbio Ltd from Romania a virtual company focused on the design, manufacturing and marketing of objects intended for integrated waste management. Vebbio’s “waste basket” manages domestic waste in a sustainable and efficient way.
The Microsoft Innovation award was given to “Click-Events” from Belgium for their one-stop online shop for customized events through a complete interface between the customer and the different potential suppliers.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
