Developing enterprise and innovation in Surrey and Poland

31.10.2007
A group of two academics and eight research and enterprise support staff from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow spent a week at Research and Enterprise Support (RES) department at the University of Surrey from 22nd-26th of October learning about the procedures and activities related to enterprise and innovation.

The visitors met the staff of RES and, amongst others, Prof. Ian Kitchen, Prof. Susanna Hourani, Dr. Walter Wehrmayer, Prof. Colin Grant, Mr. Charles Croker and Dr. Malcolm Parry (Director of the Surrey Science Park). During the week they also visited the Surrey Enterprise Hub, Isis Innovation, Oxford Innovation and Hastings& Bexhill Hub courtesy of Jim Christy of SEEDA.

This visit was the result of RES’s collaboration with the Jagiellonian University’s Centre for Innovation and Technology Transfer (CITTRU) department in the GROW project ‘Bridging Business and Science’ (BBaS – see www.growbbas.com).

The €7.5 M SEEDA-led collaborative INTERREG IIIc program GROW project involved 5 EU regions (South East England, Malopolska, Noord Brabant, Emilia Romagna and Andalusia) RES coordinated one of the 16 successful projects aimed at research collaboration of university academics and SMEs.

It is expected that Surrey’s collaboration with the Jagiellonian University will develop in the next few years in the areas of enterprise and innovation, technology transfer, life long learning and research under the FP7.

The Jagiellonian University in Krakow was founded in 1364 and is one of the oldest universities in Europe as well as being one of the leading Polish Higher Education institutions. The visit was supported by the EU Leonardo training programme.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
