Food Tech Innovation Portal goes online

26.04.2013
Platform for open innovation and networking improves competitiveness of SMEs in food sector

After 4 years of hard development work and compilation of a wide range of data, the Food Tech Innovation Portal (http://www.foodtech-portal.eu) will be launched to the public on the 1st of May 2013. The portal offers descriptions of technologies related to food processing, including their working principle, processing parameters and applications.

In addition, the status of the technologies, which can vary from new research results to machines already available on the market, is indicated. The technology descriptions are linked to a list of relevant and openly accessible infrastructure, which offers the opportunity to test new technologies without purchasing expensive equipment.

As the technologies and infrastructures are linked to the contact data of experts working in the respective field, it is easy to approach the right people. As an additional feature, the portal offers general information and support regarding the innovation process from pre-feasibility to market launch, including technical, legal, financial, marketing and management aspects.

The Food Tech Innovation Portal aims to provide a central address with bundled information for people interested in ‘open innovation’. In this way, the implementation of new technologies in the food sector will be fostered and enhance the competitiveness especially of small and medium-sized enterprises without their own R&D departments.

The portal is created in Wikipedia style, allowing a continuous update and extension of entries, whereby content quality is guaranteed by a review process maintained by the portal developers. Access to the portal is free of charge. However, certain functions are only available after registering for the Associated Membership Platform (AMP) (amp@hightecheurope.eu). Associated members are able to enter their own contact data, technologies and infrastructure in order to use the portal as a networking platform and to generate new business contacts. Thus not only new technologies but also suitable partners for new developments can be found. Visit the portal: http://www.foodtech-portal.eu

The Food Tech Innovation Portal has been developed within ‘HighTech Europe’, an EU-funded Network of Excellence comprising 22 companies and institutes from across Europe and Australia (http://www.hightecheurope.eu).
ttz Bremerhaven is an independent research institute which performs application-based research and development. Under the umbrella of ttz Bremerhaven, an international team of experts is working in the fields of food, environment and health. http://www.ttz-bremerhaven.de

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

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...
