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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

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...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

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...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

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...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
