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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
