BioCon Valley receives the Baltic Sea Region Innovation Award

26.10.2011
German BioCon Valley was the winner when the best innovation improver in the Baltic Sea Region was awarded for the first time. BioCon Valley developed among other things ”the soybean of the north”.

The price was awarded Tuesday, October 25, evening during the gala dinner of the Baltic Development Forum Summit 2011 and the Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Gdansk.

BioCon Valley is awarded for its outstanding work with linking the strongest innovation milieus in the Baltic Sea Region within the field of life science and health.

BioCon Valley has among other things developed the protein rich blue sweet lupine into a “soybean of the north”. The network has also mapped competences within the field of life sciences and health in the Baltic Sea Region. The outcome is a strategically important database of actors in economy and industry (yellow pages in life sciences and health).

"I am especially proud about the award because it merits work and efforts which have been started more than a decade before by BioCon together with ScanBalt to develop the vision of a joint healthy and wealthy Baltic Sea Health Region", says Wolfgang Blank, Managing Director of BioCon Valley.

The award is handed out by Baltic Development Forum (BDF) and BSR Stars. BSR Stars is a flagship within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and is lead by the Swedish innovation agency VINNOVA. The purpose of BSR Stars is to create a number of world leading innovation hubs in the Baltic Sea region by linking strong Research & Innovation milieus, Clusters and SME networks. www.bsrstars.org

BDF is a high-level network for decision-makers from business, politics, academia and media in the Baltic Sea Region. www.bdforum.org

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
