From environmental protection to energy innovations: The Bavarian Research Alliance presents current projects that create sustainability through research. On October 20, 12 noon to 6 p.m., and from October 21 to 23, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., science market stalls in the Old Congress Hall on Theresienhöhe.
Around 1,000 experts from the health industry will meet in Nuremberg at this year’s international medical congress MedTech Pharma. The Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) informs visitors, among other things, about the relevant EU funding calls that will be published in July 2012.
Under the leadership of Prof. Dr. med. Thomas Klopstock (Friedrich Baur Institute at the Neurological Clinic, Clinic of the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich) and with the support of the Bavarian Research Alliance (Dr. Florence Gauzy), the international TIRCON consortium has succeeded in obtaining EU funding of Raise EUR 5.2 million over four years for research into a rare neurological disease.
The Bavarian Research Alliance strengthens its management with Martin Reichel and moves into the House of Research in Munich
Since the beginning of October 2011, the 40-year-old lawyer and attorney Martin Reichel has been supporting the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) as a further managing director alongside Professor Harun Parlar.
At the 11th Munich Science Days, the Bavarian Research Alliance will present the European project “CAMbrella” from complementary medicine and naturopathy and will use this example to show which EU funding opportunities are available for research projects in the health sector. There are also three Bavarian research alliances that are active in gene and stem cell research.
On July 1, 2009, the Bavarian Research Association for Adult Neural Stem Cells ForNeuroCell started a second funding phase.
Outstanding evaluation results were achieved by the three European joint projects submitted with the support of BayFOR in the areas of health, the environment, as well as social, economic and human sciences of the 7th framework program of the EU.
Monitoring, modeling and experiments are the three essential research strategies of the new Bavarian research association FORKAST, which aims to assess the ecological impacts of climate change on Bavaria and to develop suitable strategies for climate adaptation based on this.
With a total of 50 new projects, the very successful joint research initiative “Power Plants of the 21st Century” (KW21) of the states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg will be continued for a further four years from January 1, 2009. Research focuses on contributions to the construction of low-emission, highly efficient, cost-effective and reliable power plants for the 21st century.
On October 29th, scientists from different disciplines will meet in the surgical clinic and polyclinic – Munich city center – together with industrial partners as part of a kick-off meeting. The new research association is called: “Research association for cell-based regeneration of the musculoskeletal system in old age (ForZebRA)” and is funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation.
