No blind date anymore – Meet smart: COWIN Marketplace at Smart Systems Integration 2012

17.02.2012
The European project COWIN, aiming at fostering commercial exploitation of EU-funded research results, will offer its Marketplace’s matchmaking services during the Smart Systems Integration Conference in Zurich on 21-22 March 2012.

On the basis of pre-selected one-to-one meetings, COWIN provides partners with individual support to enter in discussion with identified key contacts and to consider new technological and business collaborations.

Succeeding in bringing innovation to market depends on many parameters, especially a technology with a key differentiation, an attractive market, the right team, and good opportunities. The best way to support success is thus to meet with the right people at the right moment and the right place. COWIN Marketplace is an effective instrument to foster technology transfer, to find new customers for innovative Smart Systems technologies and best partners for strategic partnerships and collaborative projects.

The success of COWIN Marketplace relies on the screening process operated by its experts prior to the event to match both parties demands and needs in term of technologies, markets and partnerships in order to generate business opportunities for each participant.

During the Euripides Forum in June 2011 in Helsinki, in the framework of the first COWIN Marketplace, over 50 individual meetings have been organised and lead to the identification of more than 20 concrete potential collaborations. COWIN brings together representatives from the academia and the industry to generate new business opportunities based on the “gold-nuggets” technologies developed in the course of European research projects.

Furthermore, COWIN is cooperating this year with MEMS Industry Group (MIG), which is also organising for the 1st time in Europe its Executive Congress Europe on 20th March in Zurich. MIG is the international trade association advancing MEMS across global markets and offers thus access to relevant industrial partners beyond Europe who will be available for one-to-one meetings as well. Participating to COWIN Marketplace is therefore a great opportunity to open up the scope of partnerships and to consider new technological and business opportunities with members of MEMS Industry Group.

About the Smart Systems Integration Conference - SSI
The SSI conference is one of the major events in Europe in the Smart Systems area and offers an attractive panel of potential partners from the academia and the industry to boost smart systems innovative projects to market.
About COWIN
COWIN is a support action launched under the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission for 3 years to strengthen the European competitiveness in Miniaturised Smart Systems. This initiative is dedicated to the commercial exploitation of advanced technologies developed in the framework of European collaborative research projects. COWIN’s mission is to facilitate take-up of the advanced technologies worthy of investments, in order to capture innovation, win new markets and make a profit.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
