Final Conference of EU Project Eco4Life-South Baltic Network for Environmental and Life Sciences

18.10.2013
The Final Annual Conference of Eco4Life "South Baltic Network for Environmental and LifeSciences to Boost Cross- Border Cooperation" was held in Szczecin, Poland, as a Pre-Conference for the ScanBaltForum in Gdansk 16-18th October 2013.

It served as communication platform and tool for cross-border knowledge exchange, technology transfer and partnering, and attracted international awareness to the South Baltic Region.

Experts from Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Denmark, Italy and Japan discussed best-practices in the South Baltic area in the field of Diabetes, Oncology, Epidemiology and Cardiometabolic Risk and Apheresis.

Baltic Apheresis Working Group
As a direct results of the conference, a "Memorandum of Understanin" on a Baltic Apheresis Working Group was signed between BioCon Valley, Scanbalt, Apheresis Center Rostock and network partners from Poland, Danmark and Lithuania.

Apheresis tecnologies are very safe and can be used to treat a wide spectrum of metabolic, immunologic and rheologic disturbances. The federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in North Germany is considered a leading region of apheresis treatment and research in Germany.

Nevertheless, there is an urgent need to consolidate register and clinical case data on apheresis treatment from different Baltic Sea Regions, and to develop within the Working Group new strategies how to properly design clinical trial protocols in particular disease entities.

about Eco4Life:
The project “Eco4Life-South Baltic Network for Environmental and Life Sciences to Boost Cross Border Cooperation” plans to network and bundle competencies in environmental and Life Sciences in the coastal regions of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the West Pomeranian Voivodeship and the Klaipeda County.

The overall idea of the project is to decrease existing differences within the South Baltic area with regard of access to knowledge, technologies and development in the field of knowledge based bio economy. The main focus is to integrate two further South Baltic regions (Klaipeda and Zachodniopomorskie) into the related international cooperation of business, science and administration. This shall be achieved through specialised support structures (Eco4Life contact points).

The project enables the regions and their businesses to establish alliances, which would allow for competing in the field of knowledge based bio economy on the international level. The target groups of Eco4Life, therefore, are existing knowledge based businesses, potential innovative start-ups in bio/life sector, regional politicians and key administrative offices.

The project is co-funded by the South Baltic Programme of EU.

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Neue Einblicke in die Materie: Hochdruckforschung in Kombination mit NMR-Spektroskopie

Forschern der Universität Bayreuth und des Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) ist es erstmals gelungen, die magnetische Kernresonanzspektroskopie (NMR) in Experimenten anzuwenden, bei denen Materialproben unter sehr hohen Drücken – ähnlich denen im unteren Erdmantel – analysiert werden. Das in der Zeitschrift Science Advances vorgestellte Verfahren verspricht neue Erkenntnisse über Elementarteilchen, die sich unter hohen Drücken oft anders verhalten als unter Normalbedingungen. Es wird voraussichtlich technologische Innovationen fördern, aber auch neue Einblicke in das Erdinnere und die Erdgeschichte, insbesondere die Bedingungen für die Entstehung von Leben, ermöglichen.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
