Cluster-Excellence.eu puts together the most experienced persons and organizations in Europe to identify and set up a meaningful set of quality indicators and peer-assessment procedures for cluster management.
The intention is to develop training materials and set up an approach for quality labeling of cluster management, in order to help cluster managers achieve high levels of excellence in their duties and to succeed in the peer-assessments. Cluster-Excellence.eu will then create and act as a club of professionals and institutions, to promote cluster management excellence, and diffuse the adoption of the Quality Label among its members.The European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI, www.clusterexcellence.eu), a project co-financed by the DG Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission) currently develops quality indicators that are expected to result in an internationally recognised quality label for cluster management.
“We were proud to be awarded from an external EU wide ranking for cluster management excellence. The award is an acknowledgement of our efforts in the region and it is a stimulus to proceed and to improve our excellence” says Wolfgang Blank CEO of BioCon Valley.BioCon Valley is the initiative for Life Science and health economy of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. As one of the German BioRegions BioCon Valley supports the commercial use of modern life sciences and bio- and medical technologies in the region since 1996. BioCon Valley´s tasks are networking, managing life science centers (bioincubators), project management and coordination, and public relation. BioCon Valley collaborates in strategic partnership to the life science initiatives at the Baltic Sea (ScanBalt), Vietnam and Japan. BioCon Valley is the tool of the Government of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to become Germany´s Health Region No 1 by the implementation of the Masterplan Gesundheitswirtschaft 2020. BioCon Valley is one of Germany´s kompetenznetze.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
