The settlement of the ScanBalt Academy in Schwerin, graciously donated by Landesregierung of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern will have positive impact for the region and play a significant role within the regional and global scientific community. Hans-Robert Metelmann, the Chairman of ScanBalt says: ”The ScanBalt Academy will monitor or start initiatives linking science to business. Forcing investments as a result will create new jobs and increased competitiveness. An aim is to attract resource to the Baltic Sea region, like internationally trained young scientists.”
On the agenda was discussion of a ScanBalt Center of Excellence in Cancer Prevention in line with the FP7 Capacities Work Programme of the European Union. The Ministerpresident of Mecklenburg- Vorpommern, Dr. Harald Ringstorff, kindly agreed to take political leadership in this proposal. As a gesture of commitment to ScanBalt Academy the Ministerpresident also patronized the conference.
Participation of many politicians, among others Minister of Health Erwin Sellering and Minister of Finance Sigrid Keler, was a very positive sign that politicians and prominent scientists are coming together and are discussing the connection and interplay between them. The Landersregierung Mecklenburg-Vorpommern kindly provided a financial grant to support the work of ScanBalt Academy.

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
