HighTech Europe announces second “European Food Processing Implementation Award”

The Network of Excellence “HighTech Europe” launches the 2012 European “Food Processing Implementation Award” honouring successful innovations in food processing and improvement of food quality that have been developed along a knowledge transfer chain within the last 3 years. It will serve as an incentive for cooperation between the research community and food industry.

The award ceremony will take place at the EFFoST conference in Montpellier from 21-23 November 2012. The winner will be invited and gets the opportunity to present the winning innovation. Additionally, the winner will get a contribution of 2500 Euro for promoting its technology e.g. via magazine articles, booklets or promotion events.

Furthermore, the prize includes a free membership for the HighTech Europe Associated Membership platform (AMP) for two years. After the end of the HighTech Europe project, this platform will live on through the European Institute for Food Processing (EU-IFP). This offers also the opportunity to publish information in each AMP newsletter.

Only recent innovations, implemented within the last 3 years, that can be applied for improvement of food quality or food processing schemes including packaging will be considered. As the European Food Processing Implementation Award serves as an incentive for cooperation between research institutes and food industry, innovations resulting from interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral efforts will be favoured.

Application is possible from 15 March to 15 June 2012.

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. The network promotes knowledge transfer and the introduction of high-tech technologies to food markets, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the European food industry, especially of SMEs. HighTech Europe aims to establish a European Institute for Food Processing to harmonize excellence in food processing research.

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...

Im Focus: A step towards probabilistic computing

Working group led by physicist Professor Ulrich Nowak at the University of Konstanz, in collaboration with a team of physicists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, demonstrates how skyrmions can be used for the computer concepts of the future

When it comes to performing a calculation destined to arrive at an exact result, humans are hopelessly inferior to the computer. In other areas, humans are...
