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.

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
