New Strategy to Strengthen Innovation on Top of Europe

10.06.2008
The ScanBalt Executive Committee has today in Göteborg, Sweden, approved a new strategy "Innovation on Top of Europe" for the years 2008 - 2011.

The strategy intends to strengthen the development of cross-border Innovation in the Nordic and Baltic countries, Poland, Northern Germany and North Western Russia with focus on life sciences and biotechnology.

The overarching aims are to enhance regional economic development, address significant issues within health, environment, energy, nutrition and agriculture and to promote cohesion between new and old EU member states as a cluster of people and ideas.

The strategy "Innovation on Top of Europe" focuses on three areas:
- Strengthen ScanBalt as an incubator for cross-border public-private project collaborations and promote excellence
- Develop shared services and common bench mark models for clusters and networks
... more about:
»Bioregion »Europe" »Strengthen

- Optimize ScanBalt to meet needs and demands.

Hans-Robert Metelmann, chairman of ScanBalt says "With the new strategy we have taken another step to face the challenges of globalization. Our region has to compete on knowledge based production, take advantage of our differences and remove barriers for the mobility of human, industrial and financial resources. To work, live and invest on Top of Europe is attractive but we must constantly improve to stay with the best. We aim to be a frontrunner in creating the fifth freedom in the EU, the free movement of knowledge".

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.
