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.
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.Media Contact:

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
