SBA brings together distinguished scientists either located in academic institutions and/or research based industry and/or organizations in fields related to Health and Life Sciences.
The acting president, Professor emeritus Kaare Norum, Oslo University. Department of Nutrition, School of Medicine says:
I am very pleased that SBA enhances the possibility to draw on the knowledge of top level scientists in the Nordic-Baltic area for the benefits of society. This is a valuable resource decision and opinion makers can apply in order to qualify their ideas and suggestions.
An immediate task is to promote the Arctic as a role model for the studies of climate changes; a programme proposed by SBA under the name of ALERT (Arctic learning, research and technology)”.
The annual ScanBalt Academy Day this year is taking place in Szczecin and Miedzyzdroje, Poland, September 20-21, kindly organised by Prof. Andrzej Legocki, Polish Academy of Sciences and Prof. Jan Lubinski, Pomeranian Medical University.
Subsequently the 10th ScanBalt forum takes place from 21.-23. Sept in Heringsdorf on the Polish-German Island of Usedom. More than 200 acteurs in life sciences from science and industry present their progress in cross border cooperation and celebrate their 10th anniversary.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
