- ESMT project partner of GreenTec Awards 2015-2017
- Prize awarded to most ecological and sustainable technical innovations
ESMT European School of Management and Technology is a project partner for the GreenTec Awards 2015. The Berlin-based business school thus joins the ranks of partners from business and science supporting Europe’s largest environmental award.
ESMT faculty member and energy expert Christoph Burger is one of the 60 jury members who will evaluate all entries to the competition. The cooperation between ESMT and the GreenTec Awards encompasses the next three years until 2017.
The GreenTec Awards will be presented on May 29, 2015 for the eighth time. Submissions should be highly innovative projects or products that bridge the gap between sustainability and profitability.
In 2015 projects may be submitted in one of 13 different categories by individuals or teams from Germany or abroad. The application deadline for the GreenTec Awards 2015 is September 1, 2014.
Christoph Burger commented, “ESMT places great emphasis on sustainability and innovation in research and in teaching. The GreenTec Awards honor ideas that connect these two areas, so this partnership is a great fit for both sides. I am especially looking forward to the innovative projects that participants submit.”

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...

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...
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.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
