Innovative networks in the global context

21.12.2015

Call for proposals for presentations and panels for the “AC21 International Forum” happening at Chemnitz from 30 April to 3 May 2016 is open from now on

Successful international networks are advantageous for players intending to enhance their scientific excellence by transnational cooperation, to explore potentials for innovation as well as to contribute to solutions for overcoming global challenges.

Among these successful networks counts also the “Academic Consortium 21” (AC21) which was founded in 2002. Currently it includes 19 member universities from all of the five continents originating not only from industrialized countries (i.a. USA, Australia, Japan, France) but also from emerging and developing countries (i.a. China, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, South Africa).

Within this network, Technische Universität Chemnitz plays a leading role in order to support and further strengthen the global collaboration in studies, teaching and research.

Among the largest and most important events of the mentioned network counts the “AC21 International Forum” happening every two years. In the year 2016, TU Chemnitz will host this event, to which more than 200 guests, underneath them presidents, rectors and scientific managers from the AC21-member universities, are expected to participate.

From 30 April to 3 May they will discuss the future-oriented topic “Networks of innovation for the transformation of society through science”.

Thus, “Best Practices” from different regions of the world shall be presented in order to initiate a process of mutual learning. Furthermore, the establishment and further development of a transfer culture within trans-disciplinary and cross-sector networks including the creation of appropriated framework conditions as a base for successful acting within international networks shall be approached.

From now on until the 31 January 2016, the call for proposals (particularly for presentations and panels for workshops) is open. For further details please see the “Call for Proposals: Presentations and Panels”: https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/international/vernetzung/ac21/if2016/AC21IF2016_CfP.p...

Im Focus: Energy-saving new LED phosphor

The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.

Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.

Im Focus: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

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...
