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.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
