The first TRAYSS PRIME workshop was successfully held during XIII Biotechnology Summer School of Gdansk University and Medical Academy Gdansk. The seminar in Lapino near Gdansk, Poland, was headlined “Project Management – A secure way to success”. About 40 young international scientists from the fields of medicine and biotechnology – undergraduated and post-graduated students as well as Ph.D. students and professors – followed the lectures.
Henner Willnow, TRAYSS PRIME project manager, sums up: “The concept of giving management tools to young scientists in the region works out. The interest and positive words from the audience indicate the high demand for management trainings among young researchers. Moreover, I appreciate their understanding for research project management. Those young researchers are aware of the importance of project management tools to give the daily work in the laboratories more flexibility and more resources for excellent research in the ScanBalt BioRegion.”
TRAYSS PRIME, (EU FP6), offers training in project management, innovation and IP management as well as FP7 applications for young scientists in the field of life sciences. It is organised by Steinbeis Team Northeast, Rostock, Prosciencia Beratungs-GmbH, Lübeck, and the biotech network ScanBalt. More workshops with the different topics will take place in Hamburg and Gothenburg, furthermore a spring school will be organised in 2008. More information about future seminars as well as the sign-up to the TRAYSS PRIME mailing list can be found online at www.scanbalt.org/trayss.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.
Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...
