ARTRAC aims to develop an active safety system to protect vulnerable road users (VRUs) from vehicles in motion, that is economically viable in the volume vehicle market. The safety system will consist of both actuators for controlling vehicle driving dynamics and the perception component for the vehicle’s surroundings. It will be tested on two types of vehicle that pose the biggest hazard to VRUs in urban settings, namely cars and lightdelivery goods vehicles.The environmental sensing is to be based on a single automotive 24 GHz narrowband radar sensor. This sensor offers the potential to overcome the hit her to price barrier that has prevented VRU protection systems fromentering widespread use. To meet the challenging technical requirements for extremely short measurement time, reliable target detection, ego motion and road condition estimation that have to be met, a new transmit/receive antenna and multi-channel receiver will be developed.
The consortium comprises 7 partners well experienced in this sector and worldwide leaders in automotiveindustry and research: 2 car manufacturers (Volkswagen, Fiat through C.R.F.), 2 research organisations (VTT,CTAG), 2 universities (TUHH, UPT) and one SME specialised in car sensors (SMS).
The primary goals of the Cluster are the use and application of new biocatalysts achieving novel synthetic effects by subjecting them to unconventional conditions (extreme temperatures, pressures, pH values, concentrations of salt and solvents). The enzyme systems are to be used both as final products and in subsequent processes for the production of fine chemicals and active agents. This is complemented by the development of an innovative process technology under unconventional conditions.
BIOCATALYSIS2021 is Winner of the Cluster Competition BioIndustry 2021 initiated by the German
Federal Ministry for Research and Education (BMBF).
The Cluster BIOREFINERY2021 coordinates the expert knowledge of 7 industrial companies and 9 partners of academia. Through network-ing of all partners the application of fundamental knowledge in the manufacture of bioethanol, biogas and high value products for the chemical industry throughout the entire value-added structure from thermal processes to an economically feasible biorefinery concept is ensured.
As members of the Enterprise Europe Network they are linked up through powerful databases, sharing their knowledge and sourcing technologies and business partners across all Network countries. But they are also closely linked with the European Commission, which enables them to keep abreast of EU policies and to feed small companies' views on them back to Brussels.

The Innovation Contact Service (IKS) Hamburg is a liaison office mediating collaboration between Hamburg’s commerce and academia.
The consulting and matching service is aimed to serve companies, startups and academic and public research institutions that require support or partners to realize their innovative plans – in both technical and non-technological domains. The innovation network of the IKS enables direct access to academic institutions and important industries in Hamburg.
The following IKS consulting services are offered free of charge to commerce and academia:
- Matching service and networking of suitable partners, experts and other players in the innovation process
- Composition and backing in the collaboration process as moderators
- Identification of innovation potential in companies
- Selection and transfer of support programs in Hamburg’s networks
This service is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and equity capital of lead partners.
Rising floods in the river Elbe, additional parasites affecting the local agriculture, as well as more frequent flooding of houses due to intensified rainfalls: More and more frequently these potential disasters take place simultaneously. The project KLIMZUG-NORD is exploring solutions to cope with the consequences of climate changes in the metropolitan area of Hamburg.
Partners of KLIMZUG-NORD are going to research the consequences of climate changes to urban areas, agricultural sites and the tidal riverbed of the Elbe within the city of Hamburg. Taking into account research data, environmental planning, city law, and economic plans, a range of action plans are going to be recommended. The target entails a coordinated action plan for the city regions, including a master plan which reaches to the year 2050.
Partners of KLIMZUG-NORD include 6 universities, 6 research centers, 10 offices related to city affairs, and 11 companies. Other partners have joined the project. Along with these, there are 8 neighbouring counties of Niedersachsen (Lower-Saxony) and 6 of Schleswig-Holstein who are supporting this project.
The plan is to extend the project KLIMZUG-NORD over a period of five years with a budget of around €25m, including a substantial support of €15m by the central government. Participants are largely supplying their own funds and an additional €1.2m will be contributed by the city of Hamburg.
PVA Hamburg undertakes professional invention and patent management for Hamburg universities. The PVA Hamburg is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) as part of the SIGNO program for universities and by the City of Hamburg.
The universities are
- University of Hamburg
- Hamburg University of Technology
- Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg
- Hamburg University of Applied Sciences
- University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf
The project aims to help overcome fragmentation and promote best practice by connecting established and experienced eParticipation players and networks throughout Europe as a critical first step. The objective of this project is to achieve critical mass for the establishment of a Pan European eParticipation Network (PEP-NET). Such a network will act as a repository and disseminator of good practice and exchange of experience, and be a visible resource for all interested parties across the European Union.
