ScanBalt BioRegion at European Presidency Conference

18.01.2008
ScanBalt has organised a round table discussion - The Cross Border Innovation System ScanBalt Bio Region - at the European Presidency Conference on Innovation and Clusters, 22-23 January in Stockholm.

The conference is organised by The Baltic Sea Region Innovation Network, BSR InnoNet, under the Slovenian Chairmanship and hosted by the Swedish Government. The conference will present a European Cluster Memorandum to be signed by a number of regional organisations and authorities within innovation and economic development.

The round table will discuss how ScanBalt BioRegion works to enhance cross-border innovation and to strengthen the regional clusters. In addition it will present Cancer prevention as a concrete example where supranational activation, coordination and concentration of scientific, industrial, financial and political resources need to go hand in hand. Cancer Prevention is an arena where innovation, research and policy meet and where the Baltic Sea Region has all the capacities for an outstanding performance.

Hans-Robert Metelmann, Professor at Greifswald University, Chairman of ScanBalt, says "We take the invitation to discuss ScanBalt BioRegion at the European Presidency conference as a positive recognition of the work of ScanBalt and will do our outmost to live up to expectations. ScanBalt BioRegion has the potential to make a difference for the people in the Baltic Sea Region within cancer prevention and cancer politics. Cross-border collaboration to prevent cancer may be an answer to some of the challenges we are facing due to life style related diseases".

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
