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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
