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.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
