DHL seeks innovative scientists and entrepreneurs

13.12.2012
- DHL grants award for creative innovations in logistics
- Applications can be sent in by January 31, 2013

DHL, the world's leading logistics group, is looking for the most innovative scientist/entrepreneur in the field of logistics to honor them with the 2013 DHL Innovation Award and 10,000 Euro.

Contestants can hand in their applications until January 31, 2013 at
www.dhl-event.com/Innovation-Award.

“We will honor an external, creative mind who has made a great contribution to the logistics industry”, explains Petra Kiwitt, Executive Vice President, Solutions & Innovation, DHL. “The cooperation with science and young entrepreneurs is vital for us and has brought great benefit in the past. With the help of this award, we aim to motivate scientists and young entrepreneurs to go even further to find innovative and sustainable solutions for the logistics industry.”

The award is open to students, graduates and research associates and requires a practice-orientated scientific contribution to a logistics-related problem. For the first time in the award’s history, the jury will also consider young entrepreneurs who have tackled a logistics problem and laid out its solution in a business plan – or even implemented it already.

All suggestions will be evaluated by a high-profile jury consisting of widely recognized experts from science and economy. The jury will focus on the criteria innovation, global relevance, long-term focus and realization. The award ceremony will take place on April 24, 2013, the evening before the DHL Innovation Day 2013 at the DHL Innovation Center in Germany. The DHL Innovation Day is the event on innovation within the logistics industry and will be held for the fifth time. In 2013 the panel discussions and speeches will be around the motto “Reaching for the sky”.

Besides the award for the most innovative scientist/entrepreneur, DHL also honors the most innovative employee and customer solution, and presents an award for innovation journalism.

Im Focus: Superconducting vortices quantize ordinary metal

Russian researchers together with their French colleagues discovered that a genuine feature of superconductors -- quantum Abrikosov vortices of supercurrent -- can also exist in an ordinary nonsuperconducting metal put into contact with a superconductor. The observation of these vortices provides direct evidence of induced quantum coherence. The pioneering experimental observation was supported by a first-ever numerical model that describes the induced vortices in finer detail.

These fundamental results, published in the journal Nature Communications, enable a better understanding and description of the processes occurring at the...

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
