HighTech Europe announces second “European Food Processing Implementation Award”

The Network of Excellence “HighTech Europe” launches the 2012 European “Food Processing Implementation Award” honouring successful innovations in food processing and improvement of food quality that have been developed along a knowledge transfer chain within the last 3 years. It will serve as an incentive for cooperation between the research community and food industry.

The award ceremony will take place at the EFFoST conference in Montpellier from 21-23 November 2012. The winner will be invited and gets the opportunity to present the winning innovation. Additionally, the winner will get a contribution of 2500 Euro for promoting its technology e.g. via magazine articles, booklets or promotion events.

Furthermore, the prize includes a free membership for the HighTech Europe Associated Membership platform (AMP) for two years. After the end of the HighTech Europe project, this platform will live on through the European Institute for Food Processing (EU-IFP). This offers also the opportunity to publish information in each AMP newsletter.

Only recent innovations, implemented within the last 3 years, that can be applied for improvement of food quality or food processing schemes including packaging will be considered. As the European Food Processing Implementation Award serves as an incentive for cooperation between research institutes and food industry, innovations resulting from interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral efforts will be favoured.

Application is possible from 15 March to 15 June 2012.

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. The network promotes knowledge transfer and the introduction of high-tech technologies to food markets, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the European food industry, especially of SMEs. HighTech Europe aims to establish a European Institute for Food Processing to harmonize excellence in food processing research.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
