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:

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
