ScanBalt Academy strengthens its importance as a high level scientific body

21.06.2011
ScanBalt Academy (SBA) has established itself as an independent not-for-profit network which serves to support efforts in developing ScanBalt BioRegion to a globally known brand on Top of Europe.

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.

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...

Im Focus: Virtual Reality for Bacteria

An interdisciplinary group of researchers interfaced individual bacteria with a computer to build a hybrid bio-digital circuit - Study published in Nature Communications

Scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have managed to control the behavior of individual bacteria by connecting them to a...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...

Im Focus: A transistor of graphene nanoribbons

Transistors based on carbon nanostructures: what sounds like a futuristic dream could be reality in just a few years' time. An international research team working with Empa has now succeeded in producing nanotransistors from graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, as reported in the current issue of the trade journal "Nature Communications."

Graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, so-called graphene nanoribbons, have special electrical properties that make them promising candidates for the...
