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

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
