HZDR Innovation Contest
In the Innovation Contest, HZDR scientists, technicians and laboratory workers of the HZDR – especially PhD students at the end of their studies, post-docs and young group leaders as well as employees, guest scientists and scholars bring their ideas into action by transforming their research results and scientific knowledge into usable products or services.
Interdisciplinary research team wins the 5th HZDR Innovation Contest
In the fifth edition of the HZDR Innovation Contest, an interdisciplinary team of young scientists from the HZDR Institute of Fluid Dynamics, the University Hospital Dresden and the TU Dresden, Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden, took first place. Since the IP rights for the idea still have to be clarified, only this much can be revealed: It is an electronic implant that recognises an important malfunction in the body and automatically corrects it.
Second place goes to a young scientist, also from the Institute of Fluid Dynamics, with the idea for the development of a low-temperature liquid metal battery unit. And third place also goes to a young research team from the Institute of Fluid Dynamics with the idea of ozone-based process wastewater treatment. This application-oriented research is conducted in the Helmholtz Innovation Lab CLEWATEC at the HZDR.
