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: 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...
