The renowned international R&D Management Conference 2014 offers representatives from science and industry a platform for exchanging views on the latest research results, successful example projects, and visionary ideas in the field of R&D Management. As this year’s host, Fraunhofer IAO is inviting participants to the Maritim Hotel in Stuttgart under the heading of “Management of Applied R&D: Connecting high value solutions with future markets”.
Connecting research and development with future markets is the topic of the international R&D Management Conference 2014, which Fraunhofer IAO will be hosting for the first time in Stuttgart from June 3 to 6. The conference will live up to its motto, Management of Applied R&D, by offering a unique mix of scientific presentations and stimuli from industry to an expected audience of around 200 international participants.
Fraunhofer’s mission is to put research into practice, and the conference will be giving delegates the opportunity to do just that on June 5, when industrial delegates, in addition to a participation to the overall conference, have the opportunityto participate only to the part of the keynote speeches, the Best Paper awards, discussions on selected topics, and a conference dinner in Stuttgart’s Alte Reithalle banqueting hall. Among the high-profile keynote speeches are presentations on R&D and innovation management from Siemens, Bosch and Festo. As one of the fathers of the MP3 codec, Dr. Bernhard Grill from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will tell the R&D success story behind this groundbreaking technology.
With the aim of ensuring a close connection with industry throughout, the call for papers itself is structured into three broad categories – R&D Organization and Efficiency, Strategic R&D and Technology Management, and Innovative IT Systems in R&D – so as to underline the relevance of the submissions to industry. Special sessions on selected topics such as R&D Management in Emerging Economies or Sustainability and R&D Management will each be jointly led by a representative from the field of research and one from industry.
As this year’s host for the conference, which will be held in the Maritim Hotel conference center, Fraunhofer IAO is offering an appealing program of accompanying events. These will kick off with a reception at the institute’s Center for Virtual Engineering ZVE, which was opened last year. A guided tour of the labs housed in this architecturally pioneering building will give participants a chance to experience research and development “live”. The conference program also features a visit to the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
Submissions of abstracts for papers to be presented at the conference will be accepted until January 20, 2014. Please visit www.rnd2014.iao.fraunhofer.de for more information on the event partners and for details of the program, the speakers, and the call for papers.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
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...
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...
