ESA receives award for Technology Transfer

10.03.2006


ESA has received an award for achievement in the public sector, for its Technology Transfer activities, announced at the first annual International Marketplace and Conference for Technology Transfer Professionals (IPTEC) in Cannes last month.

ESA can claim 200 successful examples of technology transfer in the past 16 years, leading to the set up of 30 companies being set up in Europe. The award, presented by the Mayor of Cannes, was received by Pierre Brisson, ESA Head of technology transfer and promotion.

The IPTEC conference is a unique gathering of some of the world’s leading experts in technology transfer, who will explain and discuss the latest corporate strategies, provide case studies of successful licensing programmes and take part in interactive sessions on technology transfer issues in different industries.



It is organised in association with the leading international industry magazine, Managing Intellectual Property. Keynote speakers included Marshall Phelps of Microsoft, Todd Dickinson of GE, Ruud Peters of Philips and Robert Suter of IBM.

Around 200 technology transfer specialists from companies all over the world attended the event, which was held at the Palais des Festivals, Cannes. As well as the conference sessions, there were opportunities for networking and discussing licensing opportunities. Companies represented included 3M, Alcatel, ARM, BTG, Ericsson, Honeywell, Kimberly-Clark, NEC, Nokia, Xerox and many of the world’s leading research universities

IBM won the inaugural industry award for achievement in technology transfer.

Stanford University was recognized for its achievement in technology transfer, thanks in particular to the success of Google and DNA cloning technology, which it developed with the University of California.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
