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".

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
