The R&D management conference 2014 in Stuttgart

19.12.2013
International R&D Management Conference brings together experts from research and industry

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.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
