Contact points will be established in each of the regions to build up a regional network and realise vivid cross border cooperation to strengthen entrepreneurship and economy in the South Baltic region. The project was approved on April, 21st by the Steering Committee South Baltic Cross-border Co-operation Programme at their voting in Gdansk/Poland . It has a three year runtime and a volume of 934 TEUR.
Life Sciences and Environmental Technologies belong to the most promising fields of innovation for the economic development in Europe. The academic centres around the Baltic Sea have earned a lot of expertise in the recent years. Northern Baltic Sea Regions, like Medicon Valley - the Life Science Cluster at the Öresund - have developed into leading life science clusters in Europe. Entrepreneurial development in the South Baltic Sea region is young. Applied research in the academic centers is strong and shows potential for development of a strong Knowledge Based BioEconomy – a key vision stated by EU in her Cologne paper from 2007.
In the project Eco4Life the partners Pomeranian Medical University of Szczecin in Poland, University of Klaipeda in Lithuania and BioCon Valley Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Germany are going to promote the regional potential and will bundle their strengths to create a strong and competitive South Baltic Region by mobilizing cross border cooperation in science and business. In particular, the partners will install contact points in the cities of Greifswald, Szczecin and Klaipeda that will document relevant actors and their competencies in the field of life sciences and environmental technologies, organise joint events for researchers, entrepreneurs and local authorities, exchange best practise examples from the Baltic Sea Region, will build up training programmes for entrepreneurs, and develop regional and cross-regional strategies to overcome the existing gaps to Northern Baltic Sea Region.
The project envisages being a part for the implementation of the “Baltic Sea Health Region Flagship” lead by Germany and Lithuania within the EU-Baltic Sea Region strategy. The project is strongly supported by the local authorities, and young companies and ScanBalt, the life science network in the Baltic Sea Region. The lead partner of the project is BioCon Valley.Contact:

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
