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: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
