International IBM Research Prize for Fraunhofer FOKUS

17.12.2009
Fraunhofer FOKUS is now gaining laurels for its research activities regarding the electronic safe for data and documents. IBM awarded the Shared University Research Grant, which included prize money of 50,000 US dollars, to Prof. Dr. Radu Popescu-Zeletin, director of Fraunhofer FOKUS, on 15th of December 2009 in Berlin.

"With the award of the Shared University Research Grant we want to acknowledge the outstanding quality of the research activities of Fraunhofer FOKUS in the field of data security research in the eGovernment environment," said Erwin Jung, director of IBM Science Relations. Together with IBM, the experts at Fraunhofer FOKUS are working on reliable data security technologies.

"Our goal is to develop secure data management," explains Prof. Dr. Radu Popescu-Zeletin. "This is the only way to create the necessary acceptance in the public administrations to increasingly utilise Internet-based services."

In the project "Electronic Safe" Fraunhofer FOKUS collaborates with IBM to improve security of personal data on the Internet.

Focus of research activities is the conception and realisation of a virtual safe for personal data and digital documents. The "Electronic Safe" shall facilitate citizens' electronic access to the public administration and provide them with suitable tools to control and understand the use of personal data. The administration gains access to high-quality data and documents via the "Electronic Safe" that were explicitly released by the citizen.

As cooperation partner, IBM contributes the software "IBM Identity Mixer" (Idemix). It allows users to identify each other on the Internet without revealing their own identity. Fraunhofer FOKUS and IBM will use the Research Grant as an opportunity to intensify their research cooperation. Both partners want to further develop the electronic data safe until CeBIT 2010.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
