At Medica: Fraunhofer ISST enters e-health innovation alliance with Danish partners

14.11.2012
At the World Forum for Medicine, Medica, in Düsseldorf, Germany, a new Danish-German research and innovation alliance will be presented in the presence of Mrs. Pia Olsen Dyhr, Danish Minister for Trade and Investment. The objective of the alliance is to develop a Fraunhofer ISST E-Health Innovation Center to be located in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Head of the Fraunhofer ISST, Prof. Dr. Jakob Rehof, says:

“The new research centre in Copenhagen will give us the opportunity to learn from experiences made in both countries. For example in the field of telemedicine, this gives us a chance to check user preferences and barriers across borders.”

Danish Minister for Trade and Investment, Mrs. Pia Olsen Dyhr, says:

“I am convinced that this alliance will further strengthen the future collaboration in the health care industry between Denmark and Germany. The new Fraunhofer Innovation Alliance in Copenhagen allows the well-known German software engineering company to tap into the talents and creative innovation in the Danish health care industry. The very reason why a number of foreign companies have already established R&D and production facilities in Denmark to grow their global business."
The objective of the alliance

The objective of the alliance is to develop a Fraunhofer ISST E-Health Innovation Center to be located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The overall mission of the alliance is research and development of innovative deployable E-Health solutions for the benefit of society with a focus on both preventive applications and healthcare applications for patients and healthcare providers. The alliance shall bundle and reinforce joint technology competencies as well as partner and customer links between Denmark and Germany.
The partners of the alliance are
• Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST, Dortmund, Germany
• DELTA (Danish GTS leading RTO in E-Health), Copenhagen, Denmark
• Aalborg University (Department of Computer Science and Department of Health Science & Technology), Aalborg, Denmark
• KU, University of Copenhagen Department of Computer Science and Center for IT-Innovation), Copenhagen, Denmark.

Denmark has a strong life science cluster

Denmark is an excellent location for R&D and production with the life science sector. The Danish life science industry has developed into one of the strongest clusters in Europe, and it is an international example of how to successfully turn academic knowledge into commercial business. The industry consists of a dense network of universities, hospitals and companies working closely together within medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals where focus is largely on research and development.
Time and place

The alliance will be presented at the World Forum for Medicine, Medica, in Düsseldorf, Germany:
Time: 14th november 2012, 12.00 – 12.30 o’clock
Place: Representation of the Fraunhofer ISST at the Joint Booth of North-Rhine-Westphalia, hall 3, stand C 80, Medica (Fairground Düsseldorf, Germany)

Im Focus: Quantum Matter Stuck in Unrest

Using ultracold atoms trapped in light crystals, scientists from the MPQ, LMU, and the Weizmann Institute observe a novel state of matter that never thermalizes.

What happens if one mixes cold and hot water? After some initial dynamics, one is left with lukewarm water—the system has thermalized to a new thermal...

Im Focus: On the crest of the wave: Electronics on a time scale shorter than a cycle of light

Physicists from Regensburg and Marburg, Germany have succeeded in taking a slow-motion movie of speeding electrons in a solid driven by a strong light wave. In the process, they have unraveled a novel quantum phenomenon, which will be reported in the forthcoming edition of Nature.

The advent of ever faster electronics featuring clock rates up to the multiple-gigahertz range has revolutionized our day-to-day life. Researchers and...

Im Focus: Smarter window materials can control light and energy

Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.

By allowing indoor occupants to more precisely control the energy and sunlight passing through a window, the new materials could significantly reduce costs for...
