The conference is organised by The Baltic Sea Region Innovation Network, BSR InnoNet, under the Slovenian Chairmanship and hosted by the Swedish Government. The conference will present a European Cluster Memorandum to be signed by a number of regional organisations and authorities within innovation and economic development.
The round table will discuss how ScanBalt BioRegion works to enhance cross-border innovation and to strengthen the regional clusters. In addition it will present Cancer prevention as a concrete example where supranational activation, coordination and concentration of scientific, industrial, financial and political resources need to go hand in hand. Cancer Prevention is an arena where innovation, research and policy meet and where the Baltic Sea Region has all the capacities for an outstanding performance.
Hans-Robert Metelmann, Professor at Greifswald University, Chairman of ScanBalt, says "We take the invitation to discuss ScanBalt BioRegion at the European Presidency conference as a positive recognition of the work of ScanBalt and will do our outmost to live up to expectations. ScanBalt BioRegion has the potential to make a difference for the people in the Baltic Sea Region within cancer prevention and cancer politics. Cross-border collaboration to prevent cancer may be an answer to some of the challenges we are facing due to life style related diseases".

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
