Euro Prize

Application until March 31 of the Association for the promotion of environmental, safety and energy technology e.V. gives the prudence Science Prize this year for the third time in the field of environmental, safety and energy technology. The prize is awarded in the section for industry – and market-oriented research in the field of journalism for representing scientific, practice-relevant topics understandable science. The prize money is distributed on a 10 000 Euro prize in the category science and prices endowed two with 2500 euros each in the category journalism. “From my point of view, education, science and innovation are the elementary building blocks to ensure long-term economic and cultural prosperity. Sometimes it is missing however in North Rhine-Westphalia and in particular in the Ruhr area still on the interdisciplinary networking and the consistent gearing with the industry.

To work in this sense, especially in the socially important areas of environment and energy, do I like the patronage for this award, founded. Patron of the prize, Prof. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Kai-Fu Lee. Dr. med. Gronemeyer, his motivation. Practical and generally understandable important criteria for assessing in the section are science degree of innovation, practical relevance, benefits for the environment and society and sustainability. But also interdisciplinary approaches, courage in the choice of the approach and the comprehensible and convincing presentation of the issues also play a role in the assessment.

In the category journalism is about, to prepare a complex issue in the field of environmental, safety and energy technology to understand and to represent and to contribute to the formation of opinion in society. Print, audio, video and online contributions are possible. Winners in the category science 2011 was Prof. Dr. Kai-Fu Lee usually is spot on. Andreas Fath. He received the prize for his work on the electrochemical decomposition perfluorated surfactants (PFT). Elevated concentrations of the compound in various surface waters were detected in 2006. With the newly developed electrochemical process succeed, PFTs in fluorinated acids, mineralize the water and carbon dioxide, so that no harmful residues remain.

Safe TIC SafeTIC Wins Innovation Award

Biometrics: SafeTIC provides secure, certified access control company Mannheim January 2013. Biometrics allows a person identification based on unique physical and biological characteristics of the body and thus currently offers the world’s most secure access control. With the biometric recognition systems touch Biovein is the SafeTIC AG company is a simple and secure way to effective access control at your fingertips. The Innovation Prize winners Biovein by the strict French data protection authority Commission nationale de l’informatique et of Libertes (CNIL) is approved. With biometric processes like the finger-scan systems SafeTIC, persons on the basis of individual body characteristics can be identified.

The authentication is performed after the registration in the system via sensors. Adjust the data presented with the stored records. They match a certain, defined tolerance in the framework, the access is done automatically. Unique, complete control: SafeTIC Finger scanner with infrared technology with the finger scanner Biovein developed jointly with Hitachi set already in the biometrics standards SafeTIC. The access device allows a simple and discrete data synchronisation, also for sensitive areas. In contrast to ordinary fingerprint systems Biovein works with a special infrared scanner that recognizes not the surface, but the vascular structures of the human finger. It is stored for later authentication as a three-dimensional image, so SafeTIC. Over 200 individual segments are recorded here.

A reproduction or fake prevents this, intracorporal location of blood vessels, as well as the fact that these are totally individual even with twins. Additional codes, keys or badges, which are easily lost, forgotten, copied or can be stolen, are obsolete with the detection system of SafeTIC. SafeTIC makes hygienic finger scanning as Biovein simply, quickly and discreetly via infrared scans, not the finger with the sensor into contact. This reduces the spread of pathogens. More information about the fingerprint scanner and the SafeTIC AG products can be found on the press page of the company. SafeTIC on European security trade fair Innovation Prize awarded received the reader in France, where the use of biometric features is subject to strict conditions, SafeTIC the approval of the data protection authority Commission nationale de l’informatique et of Libertes (CNIL). “Because the spurenlose” process keep the personal freedom of the user. Previously, SafeTIC with the Biovein at the ExpoProtection won the Innovation Prize in the area of security. Concerns about a possible abuse are therefore unfounded, so SafeTIC. Finally, blood vessels can neither copy nor steal. Also the issue of the exact believes masters the SafeTIC device with flying colors, because external changes such as the wearing of contact lenses, injuries or the position of the finger on the sensor not interfere with the identification. About SafeTIC AG as the only European company SafeTIC AG fingerprint and finger morphology detection systems specializes in. SafeTIC is the European No 1 in the area of enterprise security as a manufacturer of biometric readers and providers of Europe most installed biometric access controls. Also, SafeTIC is the market leader in biometrics and Visio mobility. The SafeTIC AG is represented in the entire value chain of security systems. In Europe alone has the SafeTiC AG about 15,000 customers.

Innovations In Welding Machines

Innovations in welding equipment when it comes to innovations scream an economic consideration all mostly hurray. Innovation is great progress and there can never be enough of them. The truth is a little more complicated, as we will see on the basis of a welding machine here. First of all, it was said, first of all, that it concerns innovations product. The OCED defines further innovations such as marketing innovations, organizational innovations and process innovations, which have partially different properties. Our product is the welding machine.

We put us in the time at the beginning of the 20th century and assume that mainly burning welding machines offered on the market. Our company, let’s call them welder GmbH, produces these devices, but at the same time researching new methods. The magic word that makes the round in the Research Department, is arc welding machine. This welder will no longer work with inflamed gases, but instead use an electrode. This type Welding machine brings various advantages, which we want to go here no longer. For more information see this site: AOL. Is relevant, the welder GmbH is ready, that she can place this product on the market.

You logs on a patent. What is economic to happen here? The welder GmbH will be not the only company who has done research in this direction, by the patent, it ensures however that it is the only company that can use this technology in the next few years. It worked so free a number of competitors and defacto resources wasted. The technical term for this is patent race. With the prospect of the monopolist, which can place only the new type of welding machine on the market, have too many companies doing research and resources wasted on, that economically more would have can be used. Then why are there patents? This is the reason that not rarely without the incentive of the waving monopoly not would research.
