CITEC and CoR-Lab as "Best-Practice" Examples of Bielefeld University at the Hannover Fair

Selected focuses of research and cooperation projects Bielefeld University is exhibiting two focuses of research at the Hannover Fair 2010 from 19 to 23 April. The exhibition focuses not only on top-level research and cooperation projects in research and teaching but also on the attractiveness of Bielefeld as a study location.

Insights into the design of interactive intelligent systems are being shown in Hall 16, Stand A04 by the Institute of Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) and the Centre of Excellence on Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC). To mark this year's HMI partnership with Italy, the stand is also presenting an exhibit by the Instituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Genoa. The IIT is a cooperation partner in the EU project AMARSi (Adaptive Modular Architectures for Rich Motor Skills), which is being coordinated by Bielefeld University, and two further EU projects, iTalk and RobotDoc.

Scientists from BINAS – Bielefeld Institute for Biophysics and Nanoscience – can be found in Hall 2 on Stand C32 of the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) state cluster "NanoMikro+Werkstoffe.NRW". They are exhibiting the latest developments in their workfields such as the use of nano membranes as specimen slides for high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and a technology platform with which sensors and memories for a range of applications can be prepared rapidly and flexibly on one chip.

Under the motto "More Efficient – More Innovative – More Sustainable", the Hannover Fair is exhibiting innovations, trends, and technologies along with new materials in the world of industry from 19 to 23 April 2010. Focusing on energy, mobility, automation, and industrial supply, the fair covers all the central trends in industry.
