The renowned international R&D Management Conference 2014 offers representatives from science and industry a platform for exchanging views on the latest research results, successful example projects, and visionary ideas in the field of R&D Management. As this year’s host, Fraunhofer IAO is inviting participants to the Maritim Hotel in Stuttgart under the heading of “Management of Applied R&D: Connecting high value solutions with future markets”.
Connecting research and development with future markets is the topic of the international R&D Management Conference 2014, which Fraunhofer IAO will be hosting for the first time in Stuttgart from June 3 to 6. The conference will live up to its motto, Management of Applied R&D, by offering a unique mix of scientific presentations and stimuli from industry to an expected audience of around 200 international participants.
Fraunhofer’s mission is to put research into practice, and the conference will be giving delegates the opportunity to do just that on June 5, when industrial delegates, in addition to a participation to the overall conference, have the opportunityto participate only to the part of the keynote speeches, the Best Paper awards, discussions on selected topics, and a conference dinner in Stuttgart’s Alte Reithalle banqueting hall. Among the high-profile keynote speeches are presentations on R&D and innovation management from Siemens, Bosch and Festo. As one of the fathers of the MP3 codec, Dr. Bernhard Grill from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will tell the R&D success story behind this groundbreaking technology.
With the aim of ensuring a close connection with industry throughout, the call for papers itself is structured into three broad categories – R&D Organization and Efficiency, Strategic R&D and Technology Management, and Innovative IT Systems in R&D – so as to underline the relevance of the submissions to industry. Special sessions on selected topics such as R&D Management in Emerging Economies or Sustainability and R&D Management will each be jointly led by a representative from the field of research and one from industry.
As this year’s host for the conference, which will be held in the Maritim Hotel conference center, Fraunhofer IAO is offering an appealing program of accompanying events. These will kick off with a reception at the institute’s Center for Virtual Engineering ZVE, which was opened last year. A guided tour of the labs housed in this architecturally pioneering building will give participants a chance to experience research and development “live”. The conference program also features a visit to the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
Submissions of abstracts for papers to be presented at the conference will be accepted until January 20, 2014. Please visit www.rnd2014.iao.fraunhofer.de for more information on the event partners and for details of the program, the speakers, and the call for papers.

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.
Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...
The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
