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

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
