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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
