BioCon Valley receives the Baltic Sea Region Innovation Award

26.10.2011
German BioCon Valley was the winner when the best innovation improver in the Baltic Sea Region was awarded for the first time. BioCon Valley developed among other things ”the soybean of the north”.

The price was awarded Tuesday, October 25, evening during the gala dinner of the Baltic Development Forum Summit 2011 and the Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Gdansk.

BioCon Valley is awarded for its outstanding work with linking the strongest innovation milieus in the Baltic Sea Region within the field of life science and health.

BioCon Valley has among other things developed the protein rich blue sweet lupine into a “soybean of the north”. The network has also mapped competences within the field of life sciences and health in the Baltic Sea Region. The outcome is a strategically important database of actors in economy and industry (yellow pages in life sciences and health).

"I am especially proud about the award because it merits work and efforts which have been started more than a decade before by BioCon together with ScanBalt to develop the vision of a joint healthy and wealthy Baltic Sea Health Region", says Wolfgang Blank, Managing Director of BioCon Valley.

The award is handed out by Baltic Development Forum (BDF) and BSR Stars. BSR Stars is a flagship within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and is lead by the Swedish innovation agency VINNOVA. The purpose of BSR Stars is to create a number of world leading innovation hubs in the Baltic Sea region by linking strong Research & Innovation milieus, Clusters and SME networks. www.bsrstars.org

BDF is a high-level network for decision-makers from business, politics, academia and media in the Baltic Sea Region. www.bdforum.org

Im Focus: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

Im Focus: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: Largest, fastest array of microscopic 'traffic cops' for optical communications

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
