For the second time the IVAM Microtechnology Network, in cooperation with the French partner Pôle des Microtechniques, is going to organize the ‘Health Business Connect – Micro & Nano MEETS Medical Innovation” on July 6, 2017, this time in Dortmund, Germany.
The first Health Business Connect took place in July 2016 as a two-day meeting of high-tech companies focusing on medical technology in Besançon, France. The participants of the event, who came from 10 countries in Asia, Europe and North America, were fully satisfied with the organization and the results of the event.
The main focus of the event is furthering cooperation between component manufacturers and medical device manufacturers from Germany, France and other countries as well as joint projects, experience exchange and potential opportunities for cooperation.
In addition to organized business meetings, there will be interesting keynote lectures as well as a networking lunch for further exchange among the participants. In addition there will be a visit at Fraunhofer ISST – Institute for Software and Systems Engineering – on “Digitalization in HealthCare”.
The event is aimed at medical technology companies on the entire value chain: technology developers, component manufacturers, software, test and analysis businesses and medical device manufacturers.
The Health Business Connect 2017 will be linked to the Dortmund MST Conference, which will take place on the day before, July 5, 2017. At the conference, which is under the motto "Individualized Healthcare Solutions", international experts from companies and research institutes will present technical trends for individualized medicine and healthcare.
The participants of the Health Business Connect are welcome to attend the MST Conference free of charge. On the evening of July 5, there will be an accompanying program with a city tour and networking dinner, in which the participants of both events can get together and network.
Details on the program and further information are available at www.ivam.de

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,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
