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".

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
