HighTech Europe at Anuga FoodTec 2012

17.01.2012
HighTech Europe, the first European food processing network of excellence, organizes a series of events in the frame of ANUGA FoodTec: A workshop, a stakeholder event and a brokerage event will take place on March 2012 in Cologne. The participation is free of charge and is directed especially to small and medium sized enterprises.

Meet HighTech Europe at the 6th Anuga FoodTec, the international trade fair for food and drink technology, between 27 and 30 March 2012 in Cologne (Koelnmesse). HighTech Europe provides the latest findings from biotechnology, nanotechnology and information & communication technology made available for novel strategies in food production.

You will get the information about novel solutions for the food processing sector and find commercial and technology partners in food technology. Participants have the chance to present, discuss and develop new project ideas or to facilitate the setup of project consortia.

HighTech Europe is a European Network of Excellence that encourages small and medium-sized enterprises in the food production industry to adopt innovative knowledge. Thus, they are especially invited to join the HighTech Europe events at the Anuga FoodTec.

The Workshop „Consumer perception of novel food processing technologies” (28/03/2012, 13:00-14:35), organized by network partner ttz Bremerhaven, will deal with consumer perception of novel technologies like high pressure. After a presentation of results gained in the project, the topic will be discussed interactively with the audience, comprising issues like technological advantages and possibilities of novel technologies, potential risks, legal labeling requirements, ways to communicate the topic to consumers as well as consumers’ expectations and fears. The arguments of the discussion will help developers and marketing experts in their decision whether to implement novel technologies in their company or not and how the use needs to be communicated and can be used as a marketing advantage.

One of the major activities of HighTech Europe is dedicated to setting up the foundations for a sustainable cooperation in the food-tech area in form of a European Institute for Food Processing. This institute is meant to ensure efficient knowledge transfer to the European food industry, at regional up to European scale. At the Stakeholder Event “Future of Food Processing” (29/03/2012, 15:30-17:05), organized by network partner Agropolis International and Wageningen UR Food & Biobased Research, interested companies, institutes and associations can give their feedback on relevant missions for such an institute, as well as exert influence on how to proceed with the business plan for the European Institute for Food Processing. Recommendations will be considered in the project for the further development of the institute.
The HighTech Europe Brokerage Event (28 and 29/03/2012) is organized in cooperation with the Enterprise Europe Network. It allows researchers and manufacturers to exchange information about latest technologies and to find new cooperation or business partners. One-on-one meetings will be arranged according to the participants’ requests. Network partners ZENIT and ttz Bremerhaven are in charge of this event.

Registration for any of the events is possible online (http://b2match.eu/foodtec).

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. The overall intention of the network is to promote knowledge transfer and the introduction of high-tech bio, nano and ICT technologies to food markets, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the European food industry, especially of SMEs. In order to harmonize excellence in food research available within Europe, the project’s aim is to establish a European Institute for Food Processing.

HighTech Europe is coordinated by the German Institute of Food Technologies (DIL) and financed by the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
