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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
