Restoration of the Baltic Sea - Limitations and Possibilities

08.10.2009
Today the 8th ScanBalt Forum and 3rd Biomaterials Day opened in Kalmar, Sweden.

The objective of ScanBalt Forum is to gather scientist, managers, stakeholders and government officials to disseminate experiences and discuss the possibilities and limitations of active restoration approaches of the Baltic Sea. This is a step towards establishing the Baltic Sea Region as a globally competitive green valley and health region.

The responsible organizer of the Forum, Prof. Peter Brodelius, Kalmar University says "The Baltic Sea is our common heritage and what defines our region. Life sciences are providing the answers on how to protect and restore it and how to exploit it as a common resource in a sustainable manner".

One of the organisers of 3rd Biomaterials days Prof. Heimo Ylänen, Tampere University of Technology adds "Collaboration around the Baltic Sea is a tool to gather strength on a global scale. Research on biomaterials and development of biomaterial products has the potential to be a stronghold for the region if we work together".

Prof. Hans-Robert Metelmann, Chairman of ScanBalt concludes "ScanBalt BioRegion is the leading example of the Baltic Sea Region at work. We have now moved from the political visions and to the practical implementation. This makes a difference in terms of improved environment, better quality of life for the citizens and enhanced prosperity. ScanBalt BioRegion is an effective tool for the recently released EU Baltic Sea Region strategy".

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
