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: K-State study reveals asymmetry in spin directions of galaxies

Research also suggests the early universe could have been spinning

An analysis of more than 200,000 spiral galaxies has revealed unexpected links between spin directions of galaxies, and the structure formed by these links...

Im Focus: New measurement exacerbates old problem

Two prominent X-ray emission lines of highly charged iron have puzzled astrophysicists for decades: their measured and calculated brightness ratios always disagree. This hinders good determinations of plasma temperatures and densities. New, careful high-precision measurements, together with top-level calculations now exclude all hitherto proposed explanations for this discrepancy, and thus deepen the problem.

Hot astrophysical plasmas fill the intergalactic space, and brightly shine in stellar coronae, active galactic nuclei, and supernova remnants. They contain...

Im Focus: Biotechnology: Triggered by light, a novel way to switch on an enzyme

In living cells, enzymes drive biochemical metabolic processes enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very ability which allows them to be used as catalysts in biotechnology, for example to create chemical products such as pharmaceutics. Researchers now identified an enzyme that, when illuminated with blue light, becomes catalytically active and initiates a reaction that was previously unknown in enzymatics. The study was published in "Nature Communications".

Enzymes: they are the central drivers for biochemical metabolic processes in every living cell, enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very...

Im Focus: New double-contrast technique picks up small tumors on MRI

Early detection of tumors is extremely important in treating cancer. A new technique developed by researchers at the University of California, Davis offers a significant advance in using magnetic resonance imaging to pick out even very small tumors from normal tissue. The work is published May 25 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

Im Focus: I-call - When microimplants communicate with each other / Innovation driver digitization - "Smart Health“

Microelectronics as a key technology enables numerous innovations in the field of intelligent medical technology. The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT coordinates the BMBF cooperative project "I-call" realizing the first electronic system for ultrasound-based, safe and interference-resistant data transmission between implants in the human body.

When microelectronic systems are used for medical applications, they have to meet high requirements in terms of biocompatibility, reliability, energy...
