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: Solving the mystery of quantum light in thin layers

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)

It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...

Im Focus: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
