At Medica: Fraunhofer ISST enters e-health innovation alliance with Danish partners

14.11.2012
At the World Forum for Medicine, Medica, in Düsseldorf, Germany, a new Danish-German research and innovation alliance will be presented in the presence of Mrs. Pia Olsen Dyhr, Danish Minister for Trade and Investment. The objective of the alliance is to develop a Fraunhofer ISST E-Health Innovation Center to be located in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Head of the Fraunhofer ISST, Prof. Dr. Jakob Rehof, says:

“The new research centre in Copenhagen will give us the opportunity to learn from experiences made in both countries. For example in the field of telemedicine, this gives us a chance to check user preferences and barriers across borders.”

Danish Minister for Trade and Investment, Mrs. Pia Olsen Dyhr, says:

“I am convinced that this alliance will further strengthen the future collaboration in the health care industry between Denmark and Germany. The new Fraunhofer Innovation Alliance in Copenhagen allows the well-known German software engineering company to tap into the talents and creative innovation in the Danish health care industry. The very reason why a number of foreign companies have already established R&D and production facilities in Denmark to grow their global business."
The objective of the alliance

The objective of the alliance is to develop a Fraunhofer ISST E-Health Innovation Center to be located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The overall mission of the alliance is research and development of innovative deployable E-Health solutions for the benefit of society with a focus on both preventive applications and healthcare applications for patients and healthcare providers. The alliance shall bundle and reinforce joint technology competencies as well as partner and customer links between Denmark and Germany.
The partners of the alliance are
• Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST, Dortmund, Germany
• DELTA (Danish GTS leading RTO in E-Health), Copenhagen, Denmark
• Aalborg University (Department of Computer Science and Department of Health Science & Technology), Aalborg, Denmark
• KU, University of Copenhagen Department of Computer Science and Center for IT-Innovation), Copenhagen, Denmark.

Denmark has a strong life science cluster

Denmark is an excellent location for R&D and production with the life science sector. The Danish life science industry has developed into one of the strongest clusters in Europe, and it is an international example of how to successfully turn academic knowledge into commercial business. The industry consists of a dense network of universities, hospitals and companies working closely together within medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals where focus is largely on research and development.
Time and place

The alliance will be presented at the World Forum for Medicine, Medica, in Düsseldorf, Germany:
Time: 14th november 2012, 12.00 – 12.30 o’clock
Place: Representation of the Fraunhofer ISST at the Joint Booth of North-Rhine-Westphalia, hall 3, stand C 80, Medica (Fairground Düsseldorf, Germany)

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
