On September 14, 2016 at Graz University of Technology the 7th edition of the two-day "International Congress on Pharmaceutical Engineering (ICPE)" started. At the venue “Alte Technik” top researchers from more than 20 countries are expected.
ICPE 2016, one of the world-renowned international congresses in the pharmaceutical process engineering field, takes place from September 14 to 15 and is organized by the Competence Center Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering GmbH (RCPE) together with the Institute of Process and Particle Technology (IPPT) of Graz University of Technology and the Association for Pharmaceutical Technology (APV), Mainz.
„The ICPE 2016 will bring together representatives from industry, academia, public authorities and young scientists at international level, thus enabling a wide exchange of research results at the economic and scientific location of Styria," explains organizer and ICPE-host Prof. Johannes Khinast, CEO of RCPE and Head of the institute IPPT at Graz University of Technology.
The main topics of the international conference are:
- Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Continuous manufacturing
- PAT for continuous manufacturing
- Regulatory aspects of continuous manufacturing
At the ICPE 2016 seven keynote speaches are held- such as by Dr. Jobst Limberg, Prof. Benjamin J. Glasser and Professor Kieran Hodnett – as well as six short presentations; there are more than 20 posters presented and the expected 100 congress participants will have a guided tour through the laboratories and the RCPE pilot plant at the Graz University of Technology. The program will be rounded off by giving demonstrations in the field of extrusion, spray drying and tableting.

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...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
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...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
