New event format: products2come aims to facilitate technology transfer in the life sciences

05.11.2014

A new and innovative meeting point for scientists, technology seekers and business developers has been established by the Association of German Biotechnology Companies (VBU) in DECHEMA: On 24 and 25 March 2015, the first products2come conference will offer an innovative exchange and partnering platform – all live and online. The most innovative institutions are candidates for the p2c Champions Award sponsored by the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft.

The idea grew from years of experience and discussions with technology transfer experts. “Finding the right partners to bring an innovation from the lab to the market takes a lot of time and effort as well as travelling costs”, explains Dr. Andreas Scriba who manages the products2come event.

“Bringing people from academia, SMEs and large companies together online at a distinctive date means that technology seekers can screen literally hundreds of offerings regardless of their location. Scientists can present their concept to a large audience without spending days out of the lab.”

At the core of this innovative concept is the combination of online presentations and bilateral 1-to-1 partnering meetings. Scientists and technology transfer agencies can submit innovations as of now. Experts from top biopharmaceutical, diagnostics and medtech companies will evaluate the abstracts.

The commercially most promising submissions will be selected for live online presentations on 24 and 25 March 2015. Technology seekers can screen all submitted abstracts starting from January 19. Both providers and seekers can then use the interactive partnering platform to schedule 1-to-1 online meetings during the event, discussing the technology offers and exploring opportunities for cooperation.

A special incentive is provided by the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft: The organization aims to motivate universities to participate in p2c.

The prize will be awarded to the German university which contributes the highest number of technology offers (proportionate to the size of the university) to the final programme. A cash prize of 5000 € will be awarded.

Submission of abstracts is open until December 12; the partnering platform opens on January 19, 2015.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
