Academician knows how to make an effective Ukrainian science

    Reform can be "fast enough, but step by step", I'm sure David Statnikov.
    In order to maintain domestic science, and that it can not develop normally, it is necessary to take some unpopular measures, inform news.eizvestia.com.
    In an interview ZN.UA said Vice President of the Center of new technologies, Academician of UAS David Statnikov.
   Firstly, according to the scientist, you need to keep the National Academy of Sciences and its scientific structure, moreover, enhance its role as a strategist and chief scientific research performer. In this case, the Academy should optimize its internal infrastructure to get rid of inefficient, or simply unnecessary institutions, retaining all the most effective and promising.

New SCAPE-microscope allows you to quickly and easily take pictures of objects moving freely in the environment

   Scientists from Columbia University Medical Center have designed and manufactured a prototype of a new type of microscope SCAPE (Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation Microscopy), for work that does not require any special training filmed samples. In addition, the new SCAPE-microscope is capable of producing three-dimensional survey of living objects, move freely in the environment, with the shooting speed is 10-100 times the speed shooting with the help of the best examples of laser raster (scanning) microscopes.
   At the core of the microscope SCAPE is modernized technology of optical microscopy-plane. But unlike other devices using similar technology, realized with the help move heavy lens with two lenses, SCAPE-microscope uses light lens with a lens that can cover (scan) all the shooting range at high speed.

New three-year EU project dedicated to technology transfer

On 20 January, PROGRESS-TT, a new Horizon 2020 programme was launched in Brussels. This marked the beginning of a European Commission initiative to challenge its international competitors in converting investment in research into commercial returns through innovation.

'Innovation is at the heart of Europe’s growth strategy. Over the next three years, PROGRESS-TT will bring together consortium partners with vast experience of technology transfer, capacity building and creating business solutions, skills invaluable in overcoming the barriers PROs face in transferring their technology to industry and commercial success,' Célia Gavaud, International Business Manager for Pera Consulting and Project Coordinator of PROGRESS-TT said.

PROGRESS-TT (Public Research Organisation GRowing Europe through best practice SolutionS for Technology Transfer) seeks to transfer the expertise of Europe’s leading Public Research Organisations (PROs) to those smaller PROs with the greatest potential to grow – gathering best practice to formulate Europe’s most definitive technology transfer (TT) tools, methods and insight.

The project consortium, led by Pera Consulting (UK) Ltd, brings together nine highly qualified international partners, representing the complete value chain of TT practitioners. They are: ASTP-Proton, DSM Nutritional Products, Fraunhofer MOEZ, Knowledge Innovation Market, MI.TO Technology, Philips Intellectual Property & Standards, University of Bologna, and VTT Ventures.

They will work together to design and implement a capacity building programme for technology transfer professionals that includes:

- Training, workshops, bootcamps and e-learning delivered to emerging PROs and TT funds to develop their core skills.

- Intensive coaching and mentoring for high potential PROs to accelerate their TT activity. PROGRESS-TT will form ‘teams’ of experienced TTO performers, industry, funds and high potential PROs to develop capability, capacity, opportunity, desire, and to build a supportive TT environment.

- Improved access to finance by bringing established and emerging funds together to share best practice and identify cross-border opportunities.
