Georg Greve, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) gave the jury’s motivation: “Bioclipse is breaking new ground by integrating different research areas in life science and making the tools available as Free Software for everyone. It is the jury’s expectation that the project will have major impact in the future of life science research and education.”
The Bioclipse project, which has become a major international success, is coordinated by Ola Spjuth, Ph.D. student at Uppsala University, in the research group led by Professor Jarl Wikberg.
“Bioclipse facilitates the use of computers for research and education in life science”, says Ola Spjuth and continues:
“It is very satisfying that we receive international recognition for our research. The award shows that people are appreciating Bioclipse and believe in the project’s future”.
Bioclipse has recently led to several new collaborations with research groups of major impact, both at Uppsala University and internationally, and that this has lead to a new important phase in the continued development of Bioclipse.
“I am confident that this award will make even more people join the project”, says OIa Spjuth.
Professor Wikberg points out the importance of management and analysis of large amounts of data as a central issue in today’s bio-medical research.
“Bioclipse does not only facilitate such information management and analysis, it has also proven to be an excellent way for researchers to collaborate”, says Professor Wikberg.
“These are central issues for any research group that want to remain competitive in today’s life sciences”.

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

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...
