The project was approved in the second call of the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007- 2013 (follow-up of the former INTERREG III B Programme). It aims at developing and improving a common identity of the Baltic Sea Region, basing on its rich potentials of natural and cultural heritage. In this concern the term "heritage" is consciously meant in a wider sense, not limited by the extent of UNESCO's world heritage list.
One of the work packages addresses market research to support small and medium sized tourism enterprises. It is intended to enable free access to market data which are well prepared and presented accordingly. Another work package aims at systematical search, structuring and web-based data gathering of identity forming potentials as well as a selection of appropriate data for drafting an identity profile.
Five pilot project groups plan to develop innovative tourism products. The main focus is on concrete cultural and natural treasures of the Baltic Sea Region: castles, red-brick-gothic, forests, shifting sand dunes and stones. In each case partners from 2-4 countries work together, building up on experiences from former projects.
Again, the Institute of Geography and Geology of Greifswald's University takes over the function as a lead partner for a period of 3 years. Just like its forerunner, the project was initiated and developed by Prof. Wilhelm Steingrube. All in all are 24 partners involved in the project.Part-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
