The settlement of the ScanBalt Academy in Schwerin, graciously donated by Landesregierung of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern will have positive impact for the region and play a significant role within the regional and global scientific community. Hans-Robert Metelmann, the Chairman of ScanBalt says: ”The ScanBalt Academy will monitor or start initiatives linking science to business. Forcing investments as a result will create new jobs and increased competitiveness. An aim is to attract resource to the Baltic Sea region, like internationally trained young scientists.”
On the agenda was discussion of a ScanBalt Center of Excellence in Cancer Prevention in line with the FP7 Capacities Work Programme of the European Union. The Ministerpresident of Mecklenburg- Vorpommern, Dr. Harald Ringstorff, kindly agreed to take political leadership in this proposal. As a gesture of commitment to ScanBalt Academy the Ministerpresident also patronized the conference.
Participation of many politicians, among others Minister of Health Erwin Sellering and Minister of Finance Sigrid Keler, was a very positive sign that politicians and prominent scientists are coming together and are discussing the connection and interplay between them. The Landersregierung Mecklenburg-Vorpommern kindly provided a financial grant to support the work of ScanBalt Academy.

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...
