Without research, progress and innovation would grind to a halt. But how research findings are put into practice is a subject that must be investigated in detail in its own right.
Designing ways to carry out this transfer successfully and efficiently was the subject of a joint project titled “Developing transfer mechanisms for the efficient and sustainable distribution of research findings within industrial practice using the example of mechatronics.” Here Fraunhofer IAO teamed up with colleagues from Fraunhofer ISI, the Heinz Nixdorf Institute at the University of Paderborn and the company Research and Innovation VFI, belonging to the German Engineering Federation VDMA.
All of the project’s key results have been brought together in one volume titled “Transfer of research findings to industrial practice – concepts, examples, recommendations.” This book features details of how to work up a transfer model, including its constituent stages, as well as an evaluation of the effectiveness of various transfer mechanisms and the trials undertaken to test these mechanisms in practice. The book also offers recommendations on how best to build a successful transfer of results into future research projects.

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
