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.

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".

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
