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.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
