Innovation Prize 2013 by the Council of German BioRegions

04.12.2012
The Council of German BioRegions announces the successful „Innovation Prize of the BioRegions in Germany 2013“.
Altogether, 6,000 Euros are honoured to ideas from life science research projects with application aims. In 2013, the BioRegio Regensburg with its office BioPark Regensburg GmbH will organise the award. The awards ceremony will take place at the “German Biotechnology Days” from 14th to 15th May 2013 in Stuttgart. Deadline for application is February, 15, 2013.

The three equal prizes of the „Innovation Prize of the BioRegions in Germany“ with 2,000 Euros each will be awarded to inventors with outstanding, innovative ideas for modern biotechnology. Life science projects with application aims and high implementation potential will be decorated. This is supposed to show to the public the enormous capacity of ideas from life science research.

One task of the competition is not only to introduce to the public the fantastic science performed in Germany, but also to give some understanding of the practical use of it to the community. Last but not least, the prizes with a total of 6,000 Euros are aimed to promote the transfer of knowledge, novel technologies and innovations from research to economic implementation.

The Innovation Prize is assumed to stimulate scientists to establish their inventions or products within commerce, that is to generate sustainable solutions via transfer of the technology. Therefore, the prize not only appreciates the innovation itself, but also the impact of technology transfer from science to real economy.

The competition is addressed to holders or candidates of patents from academic and non-academic research institutions. The patents have to fit into the area of modern biotechnology. The awards ceremony will take place at the “German Biotechnology Days” from 14th to 15th May 2013 in Stuttgart.

Further information and application forms are available in german language. Nonetheless, applications in english are also accepted.
Please address your application directely to the BioPark Regensburg GmbH (schuierer-wenzel@biopark-regensburg.de).

Application forms are available as download under: www.biodeutschland.org/innovationspreis.html

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
