Global Innovative Networks

22.03.2016

Premiere: The „AC21 International Forum“ will take place from 30 April to 3 May 2016 at Chemnitz – Registration open

In the era of globalization, universities are more than ever required to engage in worldwide networking because excellent scientific performance grounds in international cooperation. Working together with international partners opens up innovation potentials and provides sustainable contributions in dealing with global challenges. Furthermore, cross-country collaboration also enhances the mobility of students and scientists.

The “Academic Consortium for the 21st Century” (AC21), which was founded in 2002, counts among these successful global networks. It currently includes 19 member universities from five continents.

They are situated in industrialized countries (i.a. USA, Australia, Japan, France) as well as in emerging and developing countries (i.a. China, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, South Africa). As one of the founding members, Technische Universität Chemnitz is a key driver in strengthening its global collaboration.

The biannual “AC21 International Forum” counts among the most important events of the network. In 2016, TU Chemnitz will host this conference for the first time.

More than 100 guests, among them presidents, rectors, and university managers from AC21-member universities, are expected to come to Chemnitz for this event. From 30 April to 3 May, they will discuss different aspects of the overarching theme “Networks of innovation for the transformation of society through science”.

Keynote speakers will be the President of the German Academic Exchange Service, Prof. Dr. Margret Wintermantel, the Saxon Minister for Science and the Arts, Dr. Eva-Maria Stange, as well as Dr. Michael Korte, Head of Predevelopment of Car Concepts at AUDI AG.

During the Forum, “best practices” from different regions of the world are presented in order to initiate a process of mutual learning. In this regard, approaches for the development of knowledge regions in the USA, South Africa, Poland, and Germany will be evaluated. Also the City of Chemnitz will serve as an example for the close and successful cross-links between science, culture, and society.

Furthermore, the conference will deal with initiative to develop and strengthen a transfer culture within trans-disciplinary and cross-sector networks as well as the creation of appropriate framework conditions for sustainable activities within international networks. Finally, the participants in the event will also get insight into the Federal Excellence Cluster “Merge Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures” (MERGE) at TU Chemnitz.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
