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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Larsen C Ice Shelf rift finally breaks through

A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, after a rift in the ice,...

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
