In cooperation with the West-Pomeranian Center of Advanced Technologies Szczecin (ZCZT) BioCon Valley is going to establish a German-Polish contact point for Life Sciences at the Baltic Sea Region.
It is the goal of the project to initiate international cooperations in science and business and establish a long lasting crossborder life science network. The project is part of the national strategy "Research in Germany - Land of Ideas".
The first part of the project will take 12 months and focuses on the regions around the university cities Greifswald and Szczecin. In this period the research institutes and enterprises of the Life-Science sector of both regions were contacted to survey their expertises, their specific needs and their interests in cooperation. Using "Life Science Partnering" as a keyword, the contact office will initiate cooperation, make corresponding contacts and attend the process of cooperation continuously.
International workshops in both countries and a final international conference, planned to take place at the end of the year 2009 in Szczecin, will be realized. These are dedicated to technological transfer of the corresponding key competences in science and industry and to the various funding instruments offered by the European Union. In parallel an internet platform "Polish-German Life Science Network" is scheduled, which will comprise all actors of the sector with their profile and their specific needs. Thus it will serve as a helpful instrument for the initiation of cooperation and shall promote the Baltic Sea as an attractive bio-region itself - as a module of the ScanBalt initiative.
The project is an official part of the national campaign "Research in Germany - Land of Ideas" and is supported by the "Internationales Büro" of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).Contact:

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
