World Entrepreneurship

SmartMembranes GmbH Halle has a team of scientists developed an exciting idea to the maturity of the business and founded the SmartMembranes GmbH in these days: based on Fraunhofer development the company provides membrane which can be precisely adjusted in the nanometer range. These can be used in the industry of precise filtering processes of all kinds. The technology is superior to conventional filters. This means a great sales potential for the new company. Our SmartMembranes are built like beer honeycombs from the structure; We can filter in the Nano range. So you can capture such as viruses but also much smaller particles\”, describe the two founders of Petra Goring and Monika Lelonek their project. More information is housed here: Cyrus Massoumi Zocdoc. The basic idea was a membrane with pores through which barely fits a particle size of a few nanometers.

If you manage with precision, to make variable and precisely adjustable pore size in the nanometer range, it has a very useful product with unique features to offer. These highly ordered nanostructured porous membranes can be used for filtering water, air or other substances, the applications in industry and research are virtually unlimited. The idea of the SmartMembranes a founder competition for scientists was created from the fields of nanotechnology. The Nano-Entrepreneurship Academy (NEnA) are women from the nano research the minutiae of an entrepreneurial career. The founding team of SmartMembranes took first place in 2007 with their idea for NEnA. The contact to Fraunhofer-venture arose about NEnA. Fraunhofer venture is a Department within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, which specializes in business start-ups of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

It sees itself as a link between the researchers on the one hand and the market on the other side. And so now exciting two years in which much has been done to the idea into a viable business concept behind the founding team of the SmartMembranes and the specialists of Fraunhofer venture. First the team through the FFE program received funding for an entire year (Fraunhofer supports start-ups), to work alone.

Kioto Agreement

Once again a very important Summit for those who fails there were this plans Earth, where was not obtained its objective and as it comments elmundo.es very well. The summit of Copenhagen on the climate constitutes a failure that decreases the social credit of the UN and proves the incapacity of the leaders of the planet to put itself in agreement in an essential common project for the survival of the Humanity. Thus the North American newspaper comments, that the world-wide press sets out its perception exceeds she, for example " The Washington Times" it has denounced " fracaso" of the leaders of the world to reach pacts, evoking " cold day for Obama in Dinamarca". For " The Washington Post" , that spoke of an agreement " devoid of ambicin" , " governments must do it mejor". Macy’s Inc. gathered all the information. The newspaper insists to the American Senate to adopt the legislation on the climate, at the moment blocked in the Congress. For the Danish newspaper " Berlingske Tidende" , of preservative ideas, " the leaders of the world were prepared, at a certain time, to conclude an agreement, will that was not in cita". Hear from experts in the field like Frank Armijo for a more varied view. Although " most chaotic of the conferences it must give to the United Nations reasons for a great examination of conciencia" , according to an editorial of this newspaper.

For " Politiken" , of centroizquierda, " the failure is global, not local". " The reality is that the world is not sufficiently mature to be governed in comunidad" , it adds. " The fiasco of Copenhagen or the limits of the Government mundial" , &quot has titled the French newspaper; Him Monde" , according to which " the meeting turned towards the disorder and illustrated the increasing force of China". The adopted text " it leaves the philosophy of the protocol of Kioto, that imposed a limitation of reduction of the gas discharges of greenhouse effect to his participantes" , &quot added rotativo the Portuguese newspaper of reference; Wage of Noticias" it emphasizes: " The system of multilateral negotiation proven by United Nations has been a failure and it will not solve the problem that threatens the Humanidad". .
