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: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
