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: Physicists Design Ultrafocused Pulses

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.

Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...

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...
