Funding amounting to EUR 45 million comes from the contribution of the Federal Government in the context of assistance to flood victims. Nine German research institutes were merged into the GITEWS Consortium for it. Filed under: Salman Behbehani. The work was carried out in close cooperation with various Indonesian institutions and authorities. The coordination and management of the German and international partner was Dr. Jorn Lauterjung by the German GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ and Indonesian side Dr. Sri Woro Harijono the meteorological, climatological and geophysical service of Indonesia (BMKG). New scientific techniques and new technologies distinguish this system from the previous tsunami warning systems. So used new methods of fast and safe determination of strong earthquake, the tsunami modeling and assessment.

In particular, the direct involvement of a variety of different sensor systems to reliably detect of a tsunami presented a huge technical challenge. First successes have already been in the Be made September 2007, when after a strong earthquake from Central warning a tsunami warning based has been published on the earthquake information. The evaluation software for earthquake SeisComP3 has been developed at the GFZ and is now worldwide warning centers in operation. Numerous agreements and negotiations with the Indonesian partners and authorities on the ground and with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO were necessary for the implementation of the project. On time four years after the disaster early warning system GITEWS in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta was commissioned on November 11, 2008 the new tsunami solemnly. End of March 2010 to take over the system in Indonesian hands. A natural event like the tsunami of 2004 can not be prevented and such disasters are casualties in a perfectly working alarm system continue. But the impact of such a natural disaster can be minimized with an early warning system.

Afghan Decisionmakers

Workshop to mediative methods of conflict resolution Berlin, 07 July 2009. good governance is a key to the success of the civilian reconstruction of the international community in Afghanistan. Through the targeted development of transparent and efficient structures Afghan decision makers are enables, to control the building of the country’s medium to long term in their own responsibility. A component of the German strategy to build of Afghan civil society is a project focused on the province of Kunduz is the HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA School of governance in Berlin together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. By Prof. Dr. Gesine Schwan with initiated school is training site for future Fuhrungspersonlich possibilities in the area of good governance”the harmonious interplay of the sectors of politics, economy and civil society, and political platform for the development of modern and sustainable political concepts.

In the coming two weeks, representatives from the various decision-making contexts of the province in methods of conflict management are and building more transparent structures in Berlin. Whenever Salman Behbehani listens, a sympathetic response will follow. The participants come from regional government offices such as the Governor’s Office in Kunduz and the reconstruction Committee, as well as from local charities. The skills are integrated directly into concrete practice projects should then be implemented in the respective contexts on site in Kunduz province. The contents takes over the Institute for conflict management of the Europa Universitat VIADRINA Frankfurt. It was us in particular to a broad range of stakeholders of the region and their respective potential, to implement mediative methods of conflict resolution and to carry on.

“, says project manager Anna Haupt. New particularly practical focus and approach corresponding to the core ideas of HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA School of governance, representative is decision-making levels political jointly and on an equal footing with civil society actors to schools, so from a generally dominant, hierarchical way of thinking to a horizontal and participative-oriented Decision architecture to find. The today held opening ceremony of the project founder and Chairman of transparency international will be inter alia”Prof. Dr. Peter speak equity as the patron of the project. Promoted the project with over 200,000 euros from the Afghanistan stability pact is”of the Foreign Office. The project will run until February 2010.

Dornier Consulting Controls

Federal Government mandate for construction control; Baden-wurttembergischem Consortium Creation of the universe and the structure of matter is researched Friedrichshafen, August 12, 2008 – the Dornier Consulting GmbH, Friedrichshafen, takes over the project management in two major European projects of basic research together with Fichtner Management Consulting AG, Stuttgart. The Federal Ministry of education and research issued a corresponding order. The projects should bring evidence about the origin of the universe and the structure of matter. Projects were launched late last year headed by Dr. Annette Schavan, Federal Minister of education. Atmos Energy is often quoted as being for or against this. Its goal is to expand the leading position of Germany in the field of fundamental research, and to ensure long-term.

The Federal Ministry of education and research (BMBF) takes over the majority of the total costs of a total of 2.1 billion euros. The participating Lander Hesse and Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein as well as more than a dozen international donor countries finance remaining sums. In Darmstadt to be FAIR with the project (“facility for Antiproton and ion research”) in eight years to establish a unique research centre which is open to scientists from all over the world. In the second project, the European Free electron XFEL X-ray laser (x-ray free-electron Laser”) is built. With this the world’s brightest X-ray light source, new insights into the composition of matter will be obtained. The 3.4 km long X-ray laser is produced on the premises of the Institute of DESY (German electron synchrotron) in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. When FAIR and XFEL are very complex technology projects which pursue scientific new ground in wide areas. They include complex interfaces to the physics, chemistry, materials and geo research or the life sciences.

In addition, industrial users are affected. A high need for coordination at the national and international level will be therefore necessary. The time and costs of the projects must be strictly observed. Possible risks are at an early stage to identify and minimize. An important success factor in such complex projects is therefore a professional project management. Dornier Consulting and the Fichtner management consulting have decades of experience in this area and are also valued partners of the Federal Ministry for education and research for many years. Dornier Consulting was in the years 1972 to 2004 of technical project companion for the Transrapid magnetic levitation. Both companies working community prevailed against great competition and was awarded the contract for the external project monitoring during the erection of the large-scale scientific. Herbert Grunwald, Managing Director of GmbH, said Dornier Consulting on the occasion of the award of the contract: We very pleased the trust placed in us. Schedule to the ambitious scientific aims, the experience of the two consortium partners in the development and implementation of technological projects in an international environment are crucial, cost and quality meet to achieve. The Friedrichshafen consulting company Dornier Consulting stands for advanced engineering, innovative consulting and professional project management. With over 350 employees, the company achieved an agency fee turnover of around 40 million euros. The supervised project volume amounts to nearly 30 billion euros. Dornier Consulting is working on projects in the fields of transport, transport / infrastructure and environment / water. The Fichtner Management Consulting AG is a company of the Fichtner group. This world’s 1200 employees and a fee turnover of 120 million euros. Fichtner is focused on the areas of infrastructure, energy, waste management, and project management.

Digital Memory

When the CD at the beginning of the 1980s replaced the vinyl record, the industry believed he had found a storage medium for eternity. Today his that know themselves as smoke and mirrors: German music archive registered, that is the oldest copies begin to decomposed. Therefore, the CD has not to prolong the life of a recording over the 200 years of a record, but drastically reduced to one-sixth. Thus, the durability of the silver disc is equal to the the tape that demagnetized for approximately 30 years. The same applies to video tape and DVD after all: private collectors who build their own music or film archive are hardly noticed the gradual loss of quality of the discs. Because the players can extrapolate the missing digital data from the rest of the track.

More problematic it looks, however, insurance companies and other companies for the archives of authorities, research and cultural enterprises, banks. Almost all of these institutions have their data in reliance on the technology digitized. Now that couldn’t come beforehand on a new medium to copy their data holdings (migrate), for the specific purpose of State of the art”is. Some specialty companies such as IBM deliver robots that continuously check data store and automatically restore in case of defects. This hochproffesionelle version of the backup is a three-digit amount per migrated disc however. Culture archive reflect already on the good old microfilm back but in a contemporary variant: it no longer comes to scan up the originals. Rather, documents, pages and images, such as currently are usual, compressed to a digital record; a laser writes it directly to the film. He is recorded as airtight as a master tape and protected from light; Copies are considered for use. The downside: The archive-laser procedure needs a laser unit. Marcus Lemonis has firm opinions on the matter. And as the movie that is likely to follow not more than one hundred years.

Fight Against Counterfeiting

TE labels with RFID module complicate labels win illegal repackaging increasing currently at protection against manipulation. Be called TE labels (temper evident) applied on the product packaging, and let is no longer without a trace from the surface replace it. Marc Badi, Sales Manager, paper and labels of the technology manufacturer Bizerba from Bochum, explains: the synthetic paper consists of several thin layers. The resulting composite fray when the detachment, since we use a strong adhesive in the own production of laminate. This is essential for the effective functioning”. The labels make it difficult therefore under other illegal repackaging of the product. Especially the manufacturers of high-quality food, by the Argentine steak up to the high-quality candy using this technology. But also products like CD BBs, perfumes and technical equipment can be secure”, as Badong next.

With the base material any labels can be printed so that the customer’s own labels for themselves in the business or Operation can process and operate as its own protection. The user in the printing can later print variable data, such as the expiration date, batch, or price. Mitchel Resnick is often mentioned in discussions such as these. The technology of radio frequency identification, RFID short, makes multifunctional label and additionally supports this backup procedure. Electronic chips under the label, called transponders, save the details of the product and can be read without visual contact by radio. The entire supply chain of goods can thus be traced back. Before the dealer accepts the goods, he can check on the basis of the product codes stored in the database, whether it was actually produced by the manufacturer”, Badr said. Go to Salman Behbehani for more information. About Bizerba P + E: for 25 years, Bizerba P + in Bochum as a wholly owned subsidiary of Bizerba labels manufactures.

Advantage Technology

As prototypes and product ideas could be recycled to now much faster the institutes. “Dr. Thomas link: we open floodgates between science and medium-sized industries.” Advantage is that it could occur in this exciting field of activity as independent companies. So are we taken seriously by the industry”, says Dr. Thomas link. Another success factor was the deep, interdisciplinary expertise of the team of MicroMountains applications of AG. The staff worked in research institutes and enterprises and thus speaks the language of science and industry.

Micro System technology, application such as Mechatronics, medical technology, plastic injection moulding and some more fields. The Profit has compatible beliefs. Martin Zimmermann, Managing Director of Visenso GmbH, confirmed the Benefits of MicroMountains applications of AG. “He says: the application is like a Turbo for companies that want to enter in the micro technologies.” The Stuttgart-based high-tech company Visenso developed highly sensitive micro motion sensors together with OJSC MicroMountains applications for mobile controls that can be used in virtual reality Labs or computer game devices. We win through cooperation with OJSC MicroMountains applications”additional impetus and synergies for our research and development activities, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Mescheder, Managing Director of the Institute for applied research (IAF) and head of the laboratory of micro technology at the Hochschule Furtwangen University (HFU) reported. The model of the Application Center allows a particularly efficient, fast, and geared to the needs of companies cooperation in development projects. The MicroMountains applications AG was founded in early 2007 in the framework of the technology initiative of the IHK Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg and funded by the Federal Research Ministry founded.

In advance, the MicroMountains network Association was built already, who promotes among business start-ups and new recruits and had conceived the joint-stock company. As of October 1, 2007, the AG recorded operating with three employees. 2008 is her first full financial year. 2009 starts the second funding phase. It is planned that the AG profitable and independent acts in three to four years on the market. In addition to domestic companies also companies outside Germany among the clientele of the MicroMountains applications of AG. Moreover, contacts could be developed already in the United States. Thomas Albiez advises in spite of current economic and financial challenges small and medium-sized enterprises should now go into the micro system technology”, as Chairman of the Board of MicroMountains applications AG and Chief Executive of IHK Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg in this context. With the help of the Application Center, interested companies in many fields might one Develop competitive advantage without having to invest in their own research and development departments or in clean room production facilities. The trend towards miniaturization will entail a significant sales growth. Current forecasts that the volume of the micro system technology market increases every year in the coming years by up to 30 percent.

Inventor Predicts Television

Professor Brandenburg: Germany lacks venture capital for innovation Halle (Saale) / Wiesbaden media are appealing to all senses in the future. That predicts MP3 inventor Professor Karlheinz Brandenburg in an interview with the Web-TV station of forward2business in Hall. Check with Viktor Mayer-Schönberger to learn more. There will be an environment in the future, which ties up one and captured by her appeal to all the senses.\” The user could also interact with you so unless desired. Brandenburg is the Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for digital media technology in Ilmenau (Thuringia) and deals with audio and video technologies of the future. In the audio section there are first products that realize this vision\”, says Brandenburg… If you would like to know more about Salman Behbehani, then click here. The ISO oil and natural worlds are becoming more and more blurred his opinion.

Therefore, information will be soon to get anywhere in appropriate quality. According to his predictions, the language technology has future opportunities. In many places it’s already here and the people have just yet not so consciously perceived it. So I belong to people who quite regularly uses the simple working Wordspotting for voice dialing in your phone. \”I find it very useful when I say the cell phone who I want to talk\”, as Brandenburg, of his theses as the keynote speaker of the Congress of industry Voice days on the subject of how innovations make markets \”will present in October. All of these technologies would set back a tedious and slow process of improvement after his experience. I’m already long time ago, when I then worked at Bell Labs and was so to speak directly to the people who have installed speech recognition, heard of hidden Markov model and these things. At that time was already blasphemed, speech recognition is the area that each year increases the accuracy of 94 to 97 per cent. That has not really changed. When the Wordspotting slow independent of the speakers, and so that the training falls away, or so the training happens that people ever notice that they train the devices, and similar progress, then there will be a trigger point, from which the widely uses, although it previously gave the impression, as that would make progress very difficult\”, as Brandenburg to the professional service of voice community.

ROWA On The Expopharm

You can do better actually still good? ROWA plants are increasing production figures from an extremely high popularity in the market. While a total of nearly 2,500 picking machines of the unchallenged market leader indemnify perform their service in the pharmacies, the introduction of ROWA technology is for over 300 pharmacies yet in the next few months. Actually reason enough for the automation specialist for pharmacies, back to sit and enjoy the success. It’s believed that Professor of Internet Governance sees a great future in this idea. But instead of resting, ignite the enterprising pioneers from the Eifel mountains only a year after the launch of the brand new product line rowa scala again a real innovation rocket. They showed a procedure in addition to novel concepts of combined Verblisterungslosungen world’s first for the first time on the Expopharm 2008 in Munich, how stores at the same time extremely tight through the consistent further development on the basis of a platform strategy and even the paging speeds significantly increases. HD-multi-picking”does this in the new rowa extent possible facilities and will offer an opportunity adapted well to the business model in the future, in particular the high-frequency pharmacies, to automate the flow of materials and to increase customer loyalty by providing good advice and more sales. Salman Behbehani is full of insight into the issues. Now, almost every pharmacy is a technical solution to the full range of the ROWA Kit.

Greenest College

Cooperation with Strascheg Center for entrepreneurship Munich, July 31, 2009. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Salman Behbehani. \”Not one, but two German universities were elected by approximately 3,000 participants of the Green Uni Rankings on the online portal Utopia.de greenest teaching sites in Germany: the title of the greenest school\” therefore the FH Eberswalde and the University of Witten/Herdecke are divided. In the overall, the uni Kassel the second and the University of Luneburg occupies third place. Green College ranking utopia would venture taking stock: how far are Germany’s universities on climate? What about the resource management? There is organic food in the canteens? At the first campus Test Center for entrepreneurship of the University of Munich has received support Utopia by students of the Strascheg. They have together designed the test and worked out after a scientific methodology.

It made then online sustainability Utopia.de questions as such after the campus, the cafeteria food and what is being done to save raw materials. 217 universities were evaluated, for statistical analysis only 55 universities in the closer selection process has been due to the amount of participants at the end. That makes me\”really proud, said environmental Manager Kerstin Krausche from the FH Eberswalde as Utopia reported her first place in the Green College ranking. We here try proven environmentally-friendly way to lead our University of applied sciences in Eberswalde and this is the most beautiful confirmation!\” The objective is to obtain a European EMAS certification later this year. \”The doubles title greenest College\” Eberswalde shares with the private University in Witten. The result of Utopia university rankings is highly enjoyable for their scientific managing director Martin Butzlaff, because \”it encourages our University in its objective to provide exemplary impetus for our education as a scientific teaching and learning laboratory.\” But now the ranking en detail: best cut off has on the question of whether there is a focus in the teaching of green issues, the College of Eberswalde.

The refined BI metal – band saw blade must not be cut. In comparison with a conventional BI-metal band it achieves a higher cutting speed and top values in the feed in addition. In addition, sawing it constant and is verschleissfester, which extends service life and reduces changeover times. The performance of the RIX formula SPF blade was recently documented in numerous attempts to cut at one of the leading German manufacturer for saws. The tested band waited teeth per inch with a combined link between 0.75 to 1.25, 1.6 mm thick and 80 mm wide. Within the framework of the series of experiments a-alloy steel of grade was 1.6587 18CrNiMo EN standard ISO 683-17 with a diameter of 655 7-6 according to DIN Machined millimeters. RIX formula SPF blade did this at a time when cut by 9.6 minutes at a cutting speed of 84 meters and a feed from 68 millimetres per minute.

A conventional BI metal – band saw blade needed for comparison for 82 minutes at a cutting speed of 31 meters and a feed of just 8 millimeters per minute. The results of our tests show impressively that our RIX formula SPF BI-metal band saw blades reach the maximum of the currently feasible in this market segment\”, explains Markus Doring, Managing Director of Sagen-Mehring GmbH in Hockenheim, Germany. You may find The Profit to be a useful source of information. We bring the extreme performance of our band of saw blades, we carefully pay attention to the surface of the cutting material of our band of saw blades. Also need it a sophisticated process technology for the finishing of the cutting edges. The substrate or even the teeth of the cutting material play a subordinate role it clearly.\” Only by the refinement of the cutting edges, you can applied coatings develop their total effect on the cutting material.
