RECO Baltic 21 Tech has now become a Flagship project

03.04.2012
Harmonized approach to public procurement in the Baltic Sea Region through waste management: The project RECO Baltic 21 Tech (RB21T) has now become a flagship project to make the Baltic Sea Region a prosperous place to live.

RB21T is one of many projects of the Baltic Sea Region Programme aiming to fulfill the aims of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. The strategy aims to intensify the cooperation between the Baltic countries and to shape the region into a regional cooperation model for the whole EU.

It focuses on four areas: environment, economy, accessibility and security. Within the different funding programmes some projects are announced as so called Flagship projects. This means they are projects with high significance, which should have a responsible lead partner as well as a deadline for implementation. As RB21T was announced as a flagship project under the “Baltic sea action plan” (BSAP) area 6, the project has a high European status and will influence the development of waste management in the Baltic Sea region even more.

RB21T is an international project addressing the problem of insufficient transnational actions in the field of waste management by different means and creating innovative business opportunities in the Clean-Tech industry. As implementing procurement procedures, both for the public sector as well as for SME’s, is one of the main activities of the project, RB21T aims to strengthen the competition by enlarging the internal market through a harmonized approach for public procurement.

Waste management is a matter of central concern to Baltic Sea countries, where significant disparities are seen. RB21T is partly funded by the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 and is running from October 2010 to December 2013. It aims at addressing problems in the field of waste management by fostering sustainable waste management in the Baltic Sea Region.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
