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: Successfully Tested in Praxis: Bidirectional Sensor Technology Optimizes Laser Material Deposition

The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.

Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...

Im Focus: The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....
