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.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
