HighTech Europe at Anuga FoodTec 2012

17.01.2012
HighTech Europe, the first European food processing network of excellence, organizes a series of events in the frame of ANUGA FoodTec: A workshop, a stakeholder event and a brokerage event will take place on March 2012 in Cologne. The participation is free of charge and is directed especially to small and medium sized enterprises.

Meet HighTech Europe at the 6th Anuga FoodTec, the international trade fair for food and drink technology, between 27 and 30 March 2012 in Cologne (Koelnmesse). HighTech Europe provides the latest findings from biotechnology, nanotechnology and information & communication technology made available for novel strategies in food production.

You will get the information about novel solutions for the food processing sector and find commercial and technology partners in food technology. Participants have the chance to present, discuss and develop new project ideas or to facilitate the setup of project consortia.

HighTech Europe is a European Network of Excellence that encourages small and medium-sized enterprises in the food production industry to adopt innovative knowledge. Thus, they are especially invited to join the HighTech Europe events at the Anuga FoodTec.

The Workshop „Consumer perception of novel food processing technologies” (28/03/2012, 13:00-14:35), organized by network partner ttz Bremerhaven, will deal with consumer perception of novel technologies like high pressure. After a presentation of results gained in the project, the topic will be discussed interactively with the audience, comprising issues like technological advantages and possibilities of novel technologies, potential risks, legal labeling requirements, ways to communicate the topic to consumers as well as consumers’ expectations and fears. The arguments of the discussion will help developers and marketing experts in their decision whether to implement novel technologies in their company or not and how the use needs to be communicated and can be used as a marketing advantage.

One of the major activities of HighTech Europe is dedicated to setting up the foundations for a sustainable cooperation in the food-tech area in form of a European Institute for Food Processing. This institute is meant to ensure efficient knowledge transfer to the European food industry, at regional up to European scale. At the Stakeholder Event “Future of Food Processing” (29/03/2012, 15:30-17:05), organized by network partner Agropolis International and Wageningen UR Food & Biobased Research, interested companies, institutes and associations can give their feedback on relevant missions for such an institute, as well as exert influence on how to proceed with the business plan for the European Institute for Food Processing. Recommendations will be considered in the project for the further development of the institute.
The HighTech Europe Brokerage Event (28 and 29/03/2012) is organized in cooperation with the Enterprise Europe Network. It allows researchers and manufacturers to exchange information about latest technologies and to find new cooperation or business partners. One-on-one meetings will be arranged according to the participants’ requests. Network partners ZENIT and ttz Bremerhaven are in charge of this event.

Registration for any of the events is possible online (http://b2match.eu/foodtec).

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. The overall intention of the network is to promote knowledge transfer and the introduction of high-tech bio, nano and ICT technologies to food markets, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the European food industry, especially of SMEs. In order to harmonize excellence in food research available within Europe, the project’s aim is to establish a European Institute for Food Processing.

HighTech Europe is coordinated by the German Institute of Food Technologies (DIL) and financed by the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission.

Im Focus: Small Protein, Big Impact

In meningococci, the RNA-binding protein ProQ plays a major role. Together with RNA molecules, it regulates processes that are important for pathogenic properties of the bacteria.

Meningococci are bacteria that can cause life-threatening meningitis and sepsis. These pathogens use a small protein with a large impact: The RNA-binding...

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.
