No blind date anymore – Meet smart: COWIN Marketplace at Smart Systems Integration 2012

17.02.2012
The European project COWIN, aiming at fostering commercial exploitation of EU-funded research results, will offer its Marketplace’s matchmaking services during the Smart Systems Integration Conference in Zurich on 21-22 March 2012.

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.

About the Smart Systems Integration Conference - SSI
The SSI conference is one of the major events in Europe in the Smart Systems area and offers an attractive panel of potential partners from the academia and the industry to boost smart systems innovative projects to market.
About COWIN
COWIN is a support action launched under the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission for 3 years to strengthen the European competitiveness in Miniaturised Smart Systems. This initiative is dedicated to the commercial exploitation of advanced technologies developed in the framework of European collaborative research projects. COWIN’s mission is to facilitate take-up of the advanced technologies worthy of investments, in order to capture innovation, win new markets and make a profit.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
