A Key for Succes: Removing Intellectual Property Bottlenecks for Commercialization of Life Science Research

24.02.2009
The Steinbeis-Transfer-Institute for IP Management in collaboration with Steinbeis Team North East has developed a set of indicators for the assessment of commercially viable public-private collaborative projects in Life sciences.

This will significantly improve the possibilities for successful trans-national knowledge transfer in ScanBalt BioRegion.

The indicators targets four main dimensions namely technology, intellectual property, the market situation and the exploitation of technology transfer options. The development of the indicators is part of the EU FP 7 Co-funded project Bridge-BSR.

The indicators targets four main dimensions namely technology, intellectual property, the market situation and the exploitation of technology transfer options. The development of the indicators is part of the EU FP 7 Co-funded project Bridge-BSR.

Frank Graage, Head of Steinbeis Team North East says "With the development of indicators we have taken a major step forward towards bridging Life science academic research and SMEs in ScanBalt BioRegion. We will now implement the indicators within e.g. environmental life sciences as this has priority in order to support the development of a strong eco-industrial sector.

Overall, this promotes an effective Eco-agenda for the Baltic Sea Region and assist to establish the region as a global frontrunner within a sector, which is likely to boom the coming years".

Im Focus: Scientists present new observations to understand the phase transition in quantum chromodynamics

The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma.

This is a joint press release of University Muenster and Heidelberg as well as the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt.

Then, in a phase transition, they combined and formed hadrons, among them the building blocks of atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons. In the current issue of...

Im Focus: Patented nanostructure for solar cells: Rough optics, smooth surface

Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team led by Prof. Christiane Becker from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.

"It is not enough simply to bring more light into the cell," says Christiane Becker. Such surface structures can even ultimately reduce the efficiency by...

Im Focus: New soft coral species discovered in Panama

A study in the journal Bulletin of Marine Science describes a new, blood-red species of octocoral found in Panama. The species in the genus Thesea was discovered in the threatened low-light reef environment on Hannibal Bank, 60 kilometers off mainland Pacific Panama, by researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI) and the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica.

Scientists established the new species, Thesea dalioi, by comparing its physical traits, such as branch thickness and the bright red colony color, with the...
