Gdansk Strengthens Baltic Sea Collaboration

18.02.2009
Gdansk and the Pomorskie region strengthen their ties with the Baltic Sea Region.

The Baltic Center for Biotechnology and Innovative Diagnostics, BioBaltica, was established in 2008 as a joint venture between the Medical University of Gdansk, the Gdansk University of Technology, the University of Gdansk and the Pomorskie region.

BioBaltica now goes one step further both becoming a member of ScanBalt plus establishing a ScanBalt Liaison Office in Gdansk. The role of the liaison office will be to coordinate the international collaborations of the life science cluster in the Pomorskie region.

Gdansk and the Pomorskie region strengthen their ties with the Baltic Sea Region. The Baltic Center for Biotechnology and Innovative Diagnostics, BioBaltica, was established in 2008 as a joint venture between the Medical University of Gdansk, the Gdansk University of Technology, the University of Gdansk and the Pomorskie region.

BioBaltica now goes one step further both becoming a member of ScanBalt plus establishing a ScanBalt Liaison Office in Gdansk. The role of the liaison office will be to coordinate the international collaborations of the life science cluster in the Pomorskie region.

Prof. Krzysztof Bielawski, CEO of BioBaltica says: "With the establishment of BioBaltica and the ScanBalt Liaison office we intent to enhance the awareness of the Life science competencies to be found in Gdansk and the Pomorskie region - and to strengthen the international collaborations.

We must build an innovative knowledge-based economy and promote the development of new high tech companies. This is best done in collaboration with our neighbours around the Baltic Sea and our region has a lot to offer".

About BioBaltica
The mission of BioBaltica is to create optimal working conditions for scientists, universities and companies which will allow conducting R & D in biotechnology especially within the field of innovative diagnostics.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

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...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

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...
