Knowledge Auction – where industry meets science

01.04.2011
The first HighTech Europe Knowledge Auction on food packaging innovations will take place at interpack in Düsseldorf on 17 May 2011.

The idea behind this auction, initiated by research provider ttz Bremerhaven, is to promote the transfer of scientific knowledge to marketable products. Intensified utilization of innovations will allow companies to improve their competitive capability and ensure long-term market success.

Submitted knowledge offers were evaluated by a highly qualified expert panel and the abstracts are presented on the Knowledge Auction website. All interested bidders are invited to register for the offer of their choice. During the auction the participants will bid with rather symbolic amounts for the right of first negotiation with the knowledge owner. This offers the opportunity to exclusively negotiate the transfer of rights or a possible cooperation with the knowledge owner.

As largest packaging fair in the world, interpack offers an excellent setting for the auction because all important decision makers from the packaging sector will be at Düsseldorf. A lunch and a coffee break will provide time for networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Participation is free of charge. Further participation guidelines as well as the registration form are available for download at www.knowledgeauction.eu.

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence comprises 21 industrial and research partners from all over Europe as well as one research institute from Australia. One aspect of the project is the development of new knowledge transfer concepts aimed at enhancing the communication and the cooperation between research and industry. The overall intention of the project is 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. To harmonize excellence in food research available within Europe, the project’s aim is to establish a European Institute for Food Processing. Interested companies can access exclusive information already during the term of the project by signing up for the Associated Membership Platform (AMP). For more information, please visit the project’s website: www.hightecheurope.eu.

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
