ICCR 2014 brings together state-of-the-art research and supports seminal, multidisciplinary research perspectives for Consumer Research and Consumer Policy in Europe. Hosted by the Competence Center of Consumer Research North Rhine-Westphalia (CECORE NRW), a think tank connecting researchers in Germany’s biggest state and beyond, the conference features roundtable discussions with participants from politics, the media, and a wide range of academic disciplines (such as sociology, political science, economics, lax, psychology, history, etc.).
Amongst other important officials from the European Union and other national governments, Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research and Johannes Remmel, Minister for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Nature Conservation and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia will address the conference to foster networks of researchers, funding agencies, and government officials.
Consumer research is in charge to unfold its interdisciplinary potential without sacrificing specific research foci and approaches from different disciplines – therefore please do not hesitate to forward this information to persons interested in the mentioned issues or publish it in your networks, newsletters and social media!
The conference will be held at RCC Regional Museum | LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, Colmantstr. 14-16, 53113 Bonn, Germany. Please note that the organiser does not assume any costs for your trip or your stay in Bonn.

Today, plants and microorganisms are heavily used for the production of medicinal products. The production of biopharmaceuticals in plants, also referred to as “Molecular Pharming”, represents a continuously growing field of plant biotechnology. Preferred host organisms include yeast and crop plants, such as maize and potato – plants with high demands. With the help of a special algal strain, the research team of Prof. Ralph Bock at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam strives to develop a more efficient and resource-saving system for the production of medicines and vaccines. They tested its practicality by synthesizing a component of a potential AIDS vaccine.
The use of plants and microorganisms to produce pharmaceuticals is nothing new. In 1982, bacteria were genetically modified to produce human insulin, a drug...
Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.
The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
