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:

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
