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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
