Knowledge Auction – where industry meets science

01.04.2011
The first HighTech Europe Knowledge Auction on food packaging innovations will take place at interpack in Düsseldorf on 17 May 2011.

The idea behind this auction, initiated by research provider ttz Bremerhaven, is to promote the transfer of scientific knowledge to marketable products. Intensified utilization of innovations will allow companies to improve their competitive capability and ensure long-term market success.

Submitted knowledge offers were evaluated by a highly qualified expert panel and the abstracts are presented on the Knowledge Auction website. All interested bidders are invited to register for the offer of their choice. During the auction the participants will bid with rather symbolic amounts for the right of first negotiation with the knowledge owner. This offers the opportunity to exclusively negotiate the transfer of rights or a possible cooperation with the knowledge owner.

As largest packaging fair in the world, interpack offers an excellent setting for the auction because all important decision makers from the packaging sector will be at Düsseldorf. A lunch and a coffee break will provide time for networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Participation is free of charge. Further participation guidelines as well as the registration form are available for download at www.knowledgeauction.eu.

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. One aspect of the project is the development of new knowledge transfer concepts aimed at enhancing the communication and the cooperation between research and industry. The overall intention of the project is 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. To harmonize excellence in food research available within Europe, the project’s aim is to establish a European Institute for Food Processing. Interested companies can access exclusive information already during the term of the project by signing up for the Associated Membership Platform (AMP). For more information, please visit the project’s website: www.hightecheurope.eu.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
