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:

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
