Boost Biosystems mobilizes actors in ScanBalt BioRegion

09.10.2007
The project expert council of the EU-funded project BOOST BIOSYSTEMS delivered a report, that aims to give a snap shot of both industrial and scientific competences within the biosystem technologies in the ScanBalt BioRegion, and could serve a basis to identify the role and contribution of the metaregion's SMEs and academia in the European RTD landscape in this technological sector.
The report was discussed during the expert panel meeting in Copenhagen in June.
To achieve both the integration of biological and micro technological solutions into innovative systems in general experts see a need for

- An interdisciplinary mind set demanding for special training and a common language within biosystems technologies. This will also mean that networking of experts from different disciplines is of outmost importance.

- New biomarkers or more common new biocontent which has to be thoroughly validated by the integration of clinical knowledge to develop effective and solid assays.

- Achievements in integration of macro- and micro worlds - biological/chemical systems and micro technology using micro fluidics.

The integration of these solutions could lead to new applications in in-vitro diagnostics and high throughput technologies.

One of the main aspects of the collected data is the ability to address regional academic actors with special expertise in different technological fields. Based on these topics Boost Biosystems would be able to specifically activate those academic institutions that could potentially contribute to the relevant topics.

A number of local events will be organized during the fall, that will disseminate outcome of sector analysis and expert panels assumptions and foresight, elaborate possible R&D projects by presentation of the attending SME representatives and academic researchers and inform about opportunities in EU-programs.

The executive summary of the sector analysis in biosystem technologies and also more information on the local events are avialable on

The EU funded project Boost Biosystems with its approach of mobilising actors in the ScanBalt BioRegion - the life science metacluster in the Baltic Sea Region - provides an opportunity to create critical mass, creating a platform for knowledge transfer in this new technology field, strengthening SMEs and integrating emerging economies of the new member states around the Baltic Sea Region.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
