Cluster-Excellence.eu puts together the most experienced persons and organizations in Europe to identify and set up a meaningful set of quality indicators and peer-assessment procedures for cluster management.
The intention is to develop training materials and set up an approach for quality labeling of cluster management, in order to help cluster managers achieve high levels of excellence in their duties and to succeed in the peer-assessments. Cluster-Excellence.eu will then create and act as a club of professionals and institutions, to promote cluster management excellence, and diffuse the adoption of the Quality Label among its members.The European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI, www.clusterexcellence.eu), a project co-financed by the DG Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission) currently develops quality indicators that are expected to result in an internationally recognised quality label for cluster management.
“We were proud to be awarded from an external EU wide ranking for cluster management excellence. The award is an acknowledgement of our efforts in the region and it is a stimulus to proceed and to improve our excellence” says Wolfgang Blank CEO of BioCon Valley.BioCon Valley is the initiative for Life Science and health economy of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. As one of the German BioRegions BioCon Valley supports the commercial use of modern life sciences and bio- and medical technologies in the region since 1996. BioCon Valley´s tasks are networking, managing life science centers (bioincubators), project management and coordination, and public relation. BioCon Valley collaborates in strategic partnership to the life science initiatives at the Baltic Sea (ScanBalt), Vietnam and Japan. BioCon Valley is the tool of the Government of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to become Germany´s Health Region No 1 by the implementation of the Masterplan Gesundheitswirtschaft 2020. BioCon Valley is one of Germany´s kompetenznetze.

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.
The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...
Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.
The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...
Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...
With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.
Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...
'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.
However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
