A Key for Succes: Removing Intellectual Property Bottlenecks for Commercialization of Life Science Research

24.02.2009
The Steinbeis-Transfer-Institute for IP Management in collaboration with Steinbeis Team North East has developed a set of indicators for the assessment of commercially viable public-private collaborative projects in Life sciences.

This will significantly improve the possibilities for successful trans-national knowledge transfer in ScanBalt BioRegion.

The indicators targets four main dimensions namely technology, intellectual property, the market situation and the exploitation of technology transfer options. The development of the indicators is part of the EU FP 7 Co-funded project Bridge-BSR.

The indicators targets four main dimensions namely technology, intellectual property, the market situation and the exploitation of technology transfer options. The development of the indicators is part of the EU FP 7 Co-funded project Bridge-BSR.

Frank Graage, Head of Steinbeis Team North East says "With the development of indicators we have taken a major step forward towards bridging Life science academic research and SMEs in ScanBalt BioRegion. We will now implement the indicators within e.g. environmental life sciences as this has priority in order to support the development of a strong eco-industrial sector.

Overall, this promotes an effective Eco-agenda for the Baltic Sea Region and assist to establish the region as a global frontrunner within a sector, which is likely to boom the coming years".

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
