On the basis of pre-selected one-to-one meetings, COWIN provides partners with individual support to enter in discussion with identified key contacts and to consider new technological and business collaborations.
Succeeding in bringing innovation to market depends on many parameters, especially a technology with a key differentiation, an attractive market, the right team, and good opportunities. The best way to support success is thus to meet with the right people at the right moment and the right place. COWIN Marketplace is an effective instrument to foster technology transfer, to find new customers for innovative Smart Systems technologies and best partners for strategic partnerships and collaborative projects.
The success of COWIN Marketplace relies on the screening process operated by its experts prior to the event to match both parties demands and needs in term of technologies, markets and partnerships in order to generate business opportunities for each participant.
During the Euripides Forum in June 2011 in Helsinki, in the framework of the first COWIN Marketplace, over 50 individual meetings have been organised and lead to the identification of more than 20 concrete potential collaborations. COWIN brings together representatives from the academia and the industry to generate new business opportunities based on the “gold-nuggets” technologies developed in the course of European research projects.
Furthermore, COWIN is cooperating this year with MEMS Industry Group (MIG), which is also organising for the 1st time in Europe its Executive Congress Europe on 20th March in Zurich. MIG is the international trade association advancing MEMS across global markets and offers thus access to relevant industrial partners beyond Europe who will be available for one-to-one meetings as well. Participating to COWIN Marketplace is therefore a great opportunity to open up the scope of partnerships and to consider new technological and business opportunities with members of MEMS Industry Group.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
