More than 1,000 participants have participated in the successful conference series, with discussions featuring over 120 experts from research institution - including the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden, Frauenhofer Institute, Hasso Plattner Institute, Bloomberg - representatives from Robert Bosch, Cisco, Schott Solar, Evonik, Festo, Suntech, RWE, T-Systems, Autodesk, Siemens, SIC Processing, dena, Osram, SAP, Linde, Entelio, as well as venture capital investors such as Zouk Capital, Climate Change Capital and the European Investment Bank.
This year, the Munich Cleantech Conference will introduce the Munich Cleantech Conference Venture Award. Young, ambitious companies with an innovative, market-ready solution and a convincing, highly-scalable business model can register for this award until October 15, at www.munich-cleantech-conference.eu.
The most innovative company will be selected by a jury of experts including Prof. Eicke Weber, Head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy; Dr. Andreas Breuer, Head of New Technologies at RWE Germany AG; Dr. Alois Flatz, Partner of Zouk Capital LLP; Dr. Volker Nadenau, Member of the Executive Board of Solar Energy AG and Gabriele Riedmann de Trinidad SVP Strategic Market Energy at Deutsche Telekom. More information at: MCC-Venture-Award and http://www.cleanenergy-project.de/mcc-venture-award.
Stronger than ever, the conference will address the entire European cleantech community. Focus topics will include smart buildings and energy efficiency innovations as well as hydrogen technology for energy storage. The wider field of energy management, with its great variety of IT solutions, will offer many entrepreneurial opportunities for start-ups.Contact:

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
