Germany's northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern expands its international contacts in the healthcare sector.
For this purpose the life sciences initiative of MV BioCon Valley® prepared a business atlas in which the competencies of the region in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the lifestyle disease Diabetes mellitus is combined.The atlas is published in English and Arabic language with profiles of companies, hospitals, universities and research institutes from MV. It was presented to the international public for the first time at the Arab health 2012 in Dubai.
Products and Services "Made in Germany" enjoy a high reputation there. In particular, the skills of the country in the field of diabetes treatment fits to the high demand in the Arab countries. According to the Ministry of Health in Dubai about a quarter of the adult indigenous population suffers diabetes, local doctors say even more than 50 percent.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on the other hand has a more than 80-year tradition in diabetes research and treatment. As one of the first institutions worldwide a diabetes hospital was founded in 1930 on the island of Rügen. Today's competence centers in the country include e.g. the Heart and Diabetes Center Hospital of Karlsburg, the Institute for Diabetes "Gerald Katsch" e.V. in Karlsburg , the University of Rostock, the Infocom GmbH in Neubrandenburg, the EUROIMMUN Medical Laboratory Diagnostics AG, Lübeck / Dassow, or the Medigreif Island Hospital Heringsdorf.The production of the atlas was supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Construction and Tourism of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

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...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
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...
