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.

As electronics become increasingly pervasive in our lives - from smart phones to wearable sensors - so too does the ever rising amount of electronic waste they create. A United Nations Environment Program report found that almost 50 million tons of electronic waste were thrown out in 2017--more than 20 percent higher than waste in 2015.
Troubled by this mounting waste, Stanford engineer Zhenan Bao and her team are rethinking electronics. "In my group, we have been trying to mimic the function...
In 2021, the Franco-German satellite MERLIN shall be launched to study methane emissions on Earth. On board is a laser system that works precisely under extreme operating conditions. The technology for this has been developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and will be presented at the LASER World of Photonics 2017.
As a climate gas, methane has not yet garnered as much attention as carbon dioxide, but is – per molecule – 25 times more potent in causing global warming....
More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
