6th Munich Cleantech Conference: Energy Transition Innovations

Enterprises, start-ups, investors and scientists from across the cleantech industry will meet in Munich on November 22, 2012 for the 6th Munich Cleantech Conference. This year, Germany's most important cleantech platform focuses on innovations in energy transition, specifically in energy efficiency, storage and management.

More than 1,000 participants have participated in the successful conference series, with discussions featuring over 120 experts from research institution - including the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden, Frauenhofer Institute, Hasso Plattner Institute, Bloomberg - representatives from Robert Bosch, Cisco, Schott Solar, Evonik, Festo, Suntech, RWE, T-Systems, Autodesk, Siemens, SIC Processing, dena, Osram, SAP, Linde, Entelio, as well as venture capital investors such as Zouk Capital, Climate Change Capital and the European Investment Bank.

This year, the Munich Cleantech Conference will introduce the Munich Cleantech Conference Venture Award. Young, ambitious companies with an innovative, market-ready solution and a convincing, highly-scalable business model can register for this award until October 15, at

The most innovative company will be selected by a jury of experts including Prof. Eicke Weber, Head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy; Dr. Andreas Breuer, Head of New Technologies at RWE Germany AG; Dr. Alois Flatz, Partner of Zouk Capital LLP; Dr. Volker Nadenau, Member of the Executive Board of Solar Energy AG and Gabriele Riedmann de Trinidad SVP Strategic Market Energy at Deutsche Telekom. More information at: MCC-Venture-Award and

Stronger than ever, the conference will address the entire European cleantech community. Focus topics will include smart buildings and energy efficiency innovations as well as hydrogen technology for energy storage. The wider field of energy management, with its great variety of IT solutions, will offer many entrepreneurial opportunities for start-ups.

Im Focus: Reliable in-line inspections of high-strength automotive body parts within seconds

Nondestructive material testing (NDT) is a fast and effective way to analyze the quality of a product during the manufacturing process. Because defective materials can lead to malfunctioning finished products, NDT is an essential quality assurance measure, especially in the manufacture of safety-critical components such as automotive B-pillars. NDT examines the quality without damaging the component or modifying the surface of the material. At this year's Blechexpo trade fair in Stuttgart, Fraunhofer IZFP will have an exhibit that demonstrates the nondestructive testing of high-strength automotive body parts using 3MA. The measurement results are available in a matter of seconds.

To minimize vehicle weight and fuel consumption while providing the highest level of crash safety, automotive bodies are reinforced with elements made from...

Im Focus: Kick-off for a new era of precision astronomy

The MICADO camera, a first light instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), has entered a new phase in the project: by agreeing to a Memorandum of Understanding, the partners in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, have all confirmed their participation. Following this milestone, the project's transition into its preliminary design phase was approved at a kick-off meeting held in Vienna. Two weeks earlier, on September 18, the consortium and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which is building the telescope, have signed the corresponding collaboration agreement.

As the first dedicated camera for the E-ELT, MICADO will equip the giant telescope with a capability for diffraction-limited imaging at near-infrared...

Im Focus: Locusts at the wheel: University of Graz investigates collision detector inspired by insect eyes

Self-driving cars will be on our streets in the foreseeable future. In Graz, research is currently dedicated to an innovative driver assistance system that takes over control if there is a danger of collision. It was nature that inspired Dr Manfred Hartbauer from the Institute of Zoology at the University of Graz: in dangerous traffic situations, migratory locusts react around ten times faster than humans. Working together with an interdisciplinary team, Hartbauer is investigating an affordable collision detector that is equipped with artificial locust eyes and can recognise potential crashes in time, during both day and night.
