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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
