German Materials Efficiency Prize 2008 - Apply now!

15.08.2008
The cost of materials is of substantial importance for the competitiveness of German industry. In any manufacturing industry, material costs estimated to be approximately 42 % represent the greatest cost component, exceeding personnel costs by more than twice (19 %).

The German Materials Efficiency Prize will be awarded by the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology for the fifth time this year. Medium-size enterprises, which have increased their materials efficiency by innovative solutions in development, design, production and organization, can apply for the award up to 1 September 2008.

10,000 euro will be granted to each of the five best concepts. The award ceremony will take place within a conference on the improvement of materials and energy efficiency of medium-size enterprises in Berlin on 16 October 2008.

The BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing has been commissioned to manage this competition. Contact partner is Dr. Franz-Georg Simon, member in the advisory panel of the German Materials Efficiency Agency (Deutsche Materialeffizienzagentur) and Head of BAM Division IV.3 Waste Treatment and Remedial Engineering.

Im Focus: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: Largest, fastest array of microscopic 'traffic cops' for optical communications

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...

Im Focus: Researchers 3D print metamaterials with novel optical properties

Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna
