Würz­burg. The 2019 Ger­man Bio­tech Days (DBT), offer a forum for all sta­ke­hol­ders in Germany’s bio­tech sce­ne to exchan­ge views and expe­ri­en­ces. The Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy (Bay­FIA) will take part in the event and inform visi­tors about its ser­vice portfolio.

Sin­ce 2010, the Coun­cil of Ger­man Bio­Re­gi­ons in BIO Deutsch­land has put on the Ger­man Bio­tech Days (DBT) an annu­al two-day event.

This event is a mee­ting place for more than 850 repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from the worlds of busi­ness, sci­ence and government, inclu­ding part­ners from fun­ding insti­tu­ti­ons and public admi­nis­tra­ti­on. Through a seri­es of talks, panel dis­cus­sions and bre­ak­fast ses­si­ons, the con­fe­rence dis­cus­ses the con­di­ti­ons for inno­va­ti­on in bio­tech­no­lo­gy and the wide ran­ge of bio­tech applications.

In addi­ti­on, an accom­pany­ing exhi­bi­ti­on will give com­pa­nies, rese­arch insti­tu­tes, asso­cia­ti­ons and orga­niz­a­ti­ons an oppor­tu­ni­ty to pre­sent them­sel­ves to con­fe­rence attendees.

The Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy will be pre­sent at the exhi­bi­ti­on and inform about issu­es rela­ted to rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on fun­ding, know­ledge and tech­no­lo­gy trans­fer, patents and licences.

Nürn­berg. From June 27-28, 2018, Bay­ern Inno­va­tiv will orga­ni­se the inter­na­tio­nal con­gress „MatX 2018”. The focus of this con­gress lies on mate­ri­al innovations.

The ever­y­day life in our modern socie­ty would not be pos­si­ble without high tech mate­ri­als. Snea­kers, mobi­les, cars or wind tur­bi­nes – we find mate­ri­als ever­y­whe­re. New tech­no­lo­gies rap­di­ly chan­ge the way how mate­ri­als will be pro­du­ced in the future.

Experts are invi­ted for the inter­na­tio­nal Con­fe­rence “MatX 2018” to exami­ne this new machi­ne age, to dis­cuss com­po­si­tes for future mobi­li­ty, to pre­sent the pro­gress in addi­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­ring and to show novel con­cepts for mate­ri­al recy­cling and app­li­ca­ti­on of rene­wa­ble resources.

On the first day the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy will be the­re to pre­sent an over­view of its com­pre­hen­si­ve ser­vice an con­sul­ting port­fo­lio for your inno­va­ti­ve material-project ideas.

Enjoy new for­mats to think out­side the box.

Erlan­gen. From Novem­ber 23-25, 2016, Bay­ern Inno­va­tiv will orga­ni­se the con­gress „Next Genera­ti­on Solar Ener­gy meets Nano­tech­no­lo­gy”. The focus of this con­gress lies on cross-linking at an ear­ly sta­ge world-class sci­ence and busi­ness in the area of next genera­ti­on ener­gy to fur­ther enhan­ce tech­no­lo­gi­cal and com­mer­cial exploitation.

The con­gress will offer an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about latest deve­lo­p­ments in the field of next genera­ti­on ener­gy, essen­ti­al­ly pho­to­vol­taics. In addi­ti­on, the pro­ject asso­cia­ti­on UMWELTna­no­TECH will pre­sent their results. The asso­cia­ti­on aimed to deve­lop envi­ron­ment­al­ly safe app­li­ca­ti­ons for orga­nic pho­to­vol­taics (OPV), ener­gy sto­rage devices, and thermoelectrics.

In the con­text of 15 slots the fol­lowing topics will be discussed:

  1. OPV (mate­ri­als, devices, mul­ti­junc­tions, processing)
  2. Per­ovs­ki­te (mate­ri­als, devices, processing)
  3. Next Genera­ti­on Con­cepts (Up & Down Con­ver­si­on, inter­band con­ver­si­on, hot car­ri­er rela­xa­ti­on, TT Harvesting, …)
  4. Solution-processed quan­tum dots, col­lo­idal and nano­st­ruc­tu­red “Solar Ener­gy Harvesting”
  5. High and low T “Solar Water Splitting”
  6. Ener­gy sto­rage devices and thermoelectricity

Con­gress par­ti­ci­pants will bene­fit from gre­at net­wor­king oppor­tu­nities and can find new part­ners from sci­ence or indus­try for their projects.

At its stand, the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy will give insights into dif­fe­rent solar energy-related rese­arch fun­ding pro­gram­mes of the EU, Ger­ma­ny and Bava­ria. In addi­ti­on to that, the Agen­cy will deli­ver infor­ma­ti­on on its ser­vice port­fo­lio ran­ging from sup­port in the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess and inter­na­tio­nal part­ne­ring to tech­no­lo­gy trans­fer and patent exploitation.
