Ericsson, PS Solutions & CKD dig into agricultural IoT

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC), PS Solutions Corp., affiliated with SoftBank Group Corp., and CKD Corporation, a supplier of actuation products, are collaborating on an update to “e-kakashi”, a platform which applies artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT) technologies into agricultural processes. First introduced by PS Solutions in 2015, the second-generation “e-kakashi” platform will launch in March 2018. Mikael Eriksson, Head of Ericsson Japan, says: “True collaboration is the only way to bring real automated IoT uses cases to life. The combination of PS Solutions’ experience, applications and insight in the industry, along with the advanced features provided by Ericsson IoT, will create positive change for agriculture."  An IoT scarecrow with an AI brain The Japanese word kakashi translates to scarecrow, but PS Solutions' “e-kakashi” does much more than frighten off pests. With a powerful combination of AI, IoT and cloud technology, “e-kakashi” is designed to maintain an ideal environment for almost any crop to grow in. Japanese manufacturer CKD Corporation, a pioneer in actuation, provides the electro/pneumatic devices that allow the IoT machinery to be controlled remotely. Easy onboarding of agricultural IoT machinery The “e-kakashi” platform can easily integrate new IoT devices as agriculturalists need them. Through the Zero Touch Onboarding functionality of the Ericsson IoT Accelerator  platform, devices are immediately accessible after installation. No physical control panels are needed, as all functions are handled in the cloud. Zero Touch Onboarding, which allows devices to be onboarded to the IoT Accelerator platform and then managed through their lifecycles with ease, uses the Open Mobile Alliance Lightweight Machine to Machine (a protocol from the Open Mobile Alliance  for machine-to-machine or IoT device management) and smart objects from The Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance. These are complements to cellular IoT connectivity. PS Solutions will use Ericsson IoT Accelerator’s  building blocks with Softbank’s cellular connectivity, which is also powered by Ericsson. Incorporating data on variables such as temperature, humidity and precipitation, “e-kakashi” uses AI to automatically optimize growing conditions. For example, to maintain the ideal temperature for growing tomatoes, “e-kakashi” adjusts greenhouse ventilation accordingly. Using an intuitive app from PS solutions with comprehensive data visualization, the “e-kakashi” user can modify the AI-based standard settings to apply their own professional know-how. The current solution monitors temperature, humidity, CO2 and other conditions, and guides what actions to take next based on the AI engine. With the support of analytics from Ericsson IoT Accelerator, the next generation of “e-kakashi” will enable higher automation by connecting with actuators. Ericsson expanding IoT possibilities in JapanEricsson IoT Accelerator gives operators a low cost, reliable method to support enterprise IoT with a large number of connected devices. With the rapid growth of IoT, there are great opportunities for operators to expand revenue with new services. PS Solutions' parent company, network operator SoftBank, has partnered with Ericsson to expand networks and increase IoT revenue streams in Japan. In April 2017, SoftBank began rolling out Ericsson solutions to support the deployment of cellular IoT services across Japan. See “e-kakashi” in action The next generation of “e-kakashi” will be unveiled at AGRI WORLD 2017 from October 11 to 13 at Makuhari Messe in Tokyo. Ericsson will join PS Solutions and CKD at Asia's largest agricultural industrial trade show to discuss the possibilities of agricultural IoT.

Bolaget mottog sin första order under 2015 och har sedan dess byggt upp en kundbas bestående av bland annat Viking Line, Virgin Voyages/Fincantieri, Maersk Line, CP Energy och SSAB. Det har nu nått ett stadium där Climeon har beprövat sin teknik och dess kommersiella gångbarhet genom upprepade beställningar från ledande aktörer inom ett flertal industrier. Produkten är patentskyddad och erbjuder marknadsledande prestanda inom sina applikationsområden. Climeon har även byggt upp en skalbar organisation med hög produktionskapacitet och en erfaren ledningsgrupp som är redo för tillväxt. Climeons marknad och fokussegmentSpillvärme och geotermisk energi (under 120 °C) utgör tillsammans en stor energikälla som idag mestadels är outnyttjad på grund av begränsningar hos befintlig teknik. Climeons produkt är det första värmeåtervinningssystem som i stor skala kan nyttja denna tidigare outnyttjade energikälla för att generera el. Bolaget har därmed möjligheten att inta en ny marknad med begränsad konkurrens. Climeon fokuserar för närvarande på fyra marknadssegment: maritim, stål- och cementtillverkning, generatoraggregat och geotermisk energi.

Singtel and Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will jointly establish a Center of Excellence (CoE) to facilitate 5G development and deployment in Singapore. 5G, the next-generation mobile network technology, is expected to roll out globally from 2020 and will deliver massive connectivity, ultra-low latency, gigabit speeds, and enable advanced applications such as smart cities, Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality, and autonomous vehicles. Co-funded by Singtel and Ericsson with an initial investment of 2 million Singapore Dollars over the next three years, CoE aims to spearhead the development of Singapore’s 5G mobile network infrastructure to support future Smart Nation initiatives. It will also be open to Optus, and Singtel’s regional associates across Asia and Africa to encourage knowledge sharing within the Singtel Group. An integral part of CoE’s strategic goal is also to help industries and enterprises understand the value of 5G in transforming their business and the importance of shaping their long-term planning. This first-of-its-kind collaboration in Singapore will feature four pillars: upskilling, demos, live field trials and collaborations with tertiary institutions.   Mark Chong, Group Chief Technology Officer, Singtel, says: “This is a critical next step in our journey to 5G. We’re pleased to partner Ericsson to enhance our 5G core competencies and create a robust 5G ecosystem that will allow Singtel and our enterprise customers to benefit from the anticipated growth opportunities 5G will bring. We invite customers in various verticals, such as transportation, port operations and next-generation manufacturing, to start shaping their new digital business models with us.” Activities will kick off in the later part of 2017, starting with Ericsson providing 5G expertise and conducting workshops, followed by field testing and hands-on experience to equip more than 100 Singtel engineers with critical competencies in designing and operating a 5G network. 5G demos will be set up in Singtel’s Comcentre headquarters to showcase future 5G application possibilities such as, immersive experience on Augmented Reality, enablement of haptic feedback in surgical operations, and remote medical education.  Starting next year, a mobile 5G test bed will be deployed to carry out live 5G field trials with key enterprise customers. Singtel will also engage research and tertiary institutions on potential collaboration opportunities to test 5G radios and possible applications that can benefit from the high speeds and low latency provided by 5G. Martin Wiktorin, President and Country Manager for Singapore, Brunei & Philippines, Ericsson, says: “The establishment of the 5G CoE is timely and goes hand in hand with the Government’s move to encourage industry trials in 5G. Together with Singtel, we plan to set up a 5G test bed in 2018 for trials with key enterprise customers, with the objective of enabling a strong foundation to help design Singapore’s 5G future." 5G is seen as an important enabler for enterprises, having the potential to transform industries such as manufacturing, public safety, energy & utilities, transport, automotive and health care. It will also accelerate operational efficiencies to enable process transformation and new business models.  For example, port operators can use 5G to provide remote control of Autonomous Guided Vehicles within port operations and improve platooning reliability, which will help boost port operations efficiency. The use of sensors and technologies such as drones and augmented reality enabled by 5G can be used for predictive maintenance and enhance safety of port workers. According to the Ericsson Report on 5G Business Potential released earlier this year, 5G industry digitalization will provide a number of opportunities and boost annual revenue of mobile operators by USD582 billion from the year 2026. 5G-enabled industries, such as energy/utilities and public transport will enable operators to increase revenues by 34 percent by 2026. Singtel and Ericsson’s journey to 5G  Singtel and Ericsson are leading the way for 4G and 5G in the country. Singtel is the first operator in Southeast Asia to launch a tri-band LTE network in 2015. Singtel and Ericsson were the first to showcase 5G in South East Asia and demonstrated world’s first end-to-end low latency in 2016. Recently, Singtel and Ericsson jointly won the “Advancing the Road to 5G” accolade at the Global Telecoms Awards 2016 for Singtel’s nationwide IoT-ready 4G LTE network. Earlier this year, high download speeds of up to 1 Gbps were achieved in Singapore in a live LTE network by deploying 256 QAM downlink, 4x4 MIMO and triple carrier aggregation techniques. Singtel’s 4G LTE network currently supports 500Mbps nationwide, supporting the latest Cat 11 and above handsets such as iPhone 8 and Samsung Note8.  ### NOTES TO EDITORS About Singtel   Singtel is Asia's leading communications technology group, providing a portfolio of services from next-generation communication, technology services to infotainment to both consumers and businesses.

Autoliv and MIT AgeLab to collaborate in the research of autonomous vehicle systems

The mission of this research collaboration is to provide for the development of artificial intelligence systems that understand and manage the state of the driver to create a safe and enjoyable experience in semi-autonomous vehicles. At the core of the research effort, is the development and real world evaluation of deep learning algorithms that enable effective communication and transfer of control between human and machine. This includes sensing driver gaze, emotion, cognitive load, drowsiness, hand position, posture, and fusing this information with the perception of the driving environment to create safe, reliable vehicles that drivers can learn to trust.“We are looking to lead the world in the application of state-of-the art deep learning methods for semi-autonomous vehicle systems in a way that ensures the human being is the core focus of every algorithm and interface we build," says Lex Fridman, MIT. "It is clear that the global focus on autonomous vehicles must begin to consider increased investment in human centered vehicle system that support appropriate driver engagement through trusted safety and an enjoyable mobility experience," says Bryan Reimer, MIT. “We believe that drivers will be traversing the world’s roadways for decades to come as higher levels of automation steadily increases.”“Today, 1.4 million people die in traffic fatalities every year. Investments in vehicle automation such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) will increase road safety, but the introduction of assistance technology is not enough. To save more lives, we need to establish trust between the driver and the car’s intelligence. I am confident that this collaboration with leading researchers will accelerate the industry’s ability to deliver future safety solutions,” says Ola Boström, VP Research at Autoliv.

Smartly dressed in 100 percent Swedish paper

Wood becomes paper, which is turned into fabrics. By using knowledge and skills from classical Swedish industries, such as Nordic Paper, wood can be refined into locally produced textiles. This gives new business opportunities for the domestic industry in Sweden and creates opportunities for a more sustainable textile industry through a range of innovative solutions across branches. In the provinces of Värmland, there are dense forests of spruce and pine trees. This Swedish forest raw material is processed and refined into paper by Nordic Papers. The unbleached and locally grown paper is then shipped to the textile cluster in the Sjuhärad region, where it is spun into threads at SKS Textile and then turned into fabrics via knitting machines at the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås. At the dyeing company Sjuhäradsbygdens Färgeri, the fabric is given a dark blue colour and is then turned into a flexible dress at Smart Textiles at the University of Borås. This sounds almost like a fairy tale, but is actually a description of some of the results of the project ‘Establishing locally grown textiles in Sweden’ (Swedish: ENTIS) in BioInnovation, where a number of parties from the Swedish forestry, paper, and textile industry work together to achieve textile production of raw materials from the pulp industry. “There are already textiles made of paper, but the unique thing about this project is that we have looked at the possibilities for recycling and challenge existing production and recycling techniques to achieve a circular flow. One of the greater challenges in the production of a paper fabric is to knit with the paper yarn instead of weaving with it, since paper is a relatively stiff material. It is also fun to see the collaboration of a project with parties from different branches, and I am also looking forward to see prototypes for interior purposes emerge in this project”, says Lena-Marie Jensen, team leader of ‘Design for recycling’ and project coordinator of the focus area Sustainable Textiles in Smart Textiles. Paper – a durable and locally grown raw material  The need for textile fibres grows as the population of the earth increases (UN: 9.2 billion in 2050) and the general standard of living is higher. As people settle in cities and afford to consume more, the needs for sophisticated textiles also increase. This is why one finding of this project is that we need to take care of the raw material we have and reuse it. But there is also a need to supply new sustainable raw material that could be part of a circular flow. - As paper producer we are proud of being part of the project. This is in line with what we do every day, working for bioeconomy. It there is a possibility to make clothes out of our paper, we are thrilled since clothes is something that everyone needs every day. This is a new and exciting way of using our paper compared to the more tradtional  applications, such as sacks, bags and steel interleavingpaper, says Marie Stenquist, communication manager at Nordic Paper. This project wants to highlight the importance of constantly investigating alternatives to cotton and synthetic fibres in order to get more resource efficient fibres, and how choices in the design process affect the product’s environmental performance. In order to solve the fibre needs of the future, we need a variety of solutions where paper could be one alternative to some products. Paper is also a bio-based material in our immediate surrounding and could be part of a closed cycle. More information about the project: BioInnovation is one of Sweden’s strategic innovation programmes, which includes the project ‘Establishing locally grown textiles in Sweden’ (Swedish: ENTIS), led by Swerea IVF. Smart Textiles are responsible for the work package ‘Design for Recycling’, where the goal is to enable textile production of raw materials from the pulp industry. This will bring increased opportunities for Sweden to assume a strong position in the globally growing, bio-based economy with forests, fields, water, and waste as a basis. This could then create better conditions, both for sustainability and for the Swedish industry.

2cureX plans to get listed at Nasdaq Stockholm First North stock exchange in November 2017.

2cureX is a MedTech company that has developed IndiTreat™, a technology that can match the individual cancer patient with an efficacious treatment. IndiTreat™ has been developed and tested in more than 900 patients with promising results. Initially IndiTreat™ is directed towards colorectal cancer; but it has successfully been pre-tested in other solid cancers. 2cureX has test sites at University Hospital Bispebjerg, in Copenhagen and at University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg. Dr. Ole Thastrup, CEO of 2cureX commented: “We are extremely excited about moving 2cureX to the next level as a publicly traded company. 2cureX has been fortunate to have dedicated private investors since its inception in December 2006, and to work closely with exceptionally competent clinicians at hospitals in Denmark and Germany. The proximity to the real customers, the patients, has had a major impact on our ability to develop a functional end-point test. The IndiTreat™ test allows oncologists to test available treatments on the growth of micro-tumors originating from the patient’s cancer tumor. In our previous clinical studies, we have shown that IndiTreat™ not only can identify the most effective treatment; but also, the treatment to which the patient is resistant. In late stage cancer it is extremely important to choose the right treatment up-front, which will require the right set of tools to be used by the oncologist.  In 2cureX we are convinced that IndiTreat™ will become an indispensable piece of the oncologist’s toolbox.” The Chairman of the Board of Directors of 2cureX, Povl-Andre’ Bendz further adds: “We believe that the timing for a public listing is just right for 2cureX. The IndiTreat™ test is matured to a stage where it is ready for the final clinical validation. A successful clinical trial will provide a clear value inflection point for the company. We look forward to see that 2cureX will perform well at the Nasdaq Stockholm First North.” In 2017 2cureX has been selected to receive EUR 3 mio from EU’s H2020 program to cover the expenses for running above mentioned clinical validation study. Detailed information about the stock listing is to be found on the web-sites of Sedermera Fondkommission (www.sedermera.se) and 2cureX (www.2curex.com).

Special piece of UTA history returns to campus

The renovation of a historic Tarrant County home led to the discovery of a special slice of The University of Texas at Arlington’s past. Several broken pieces of a marble stone were discovered in a north Fort Worth home currently undergoing repairs. When the stones are pieced together, they are imprinted with the words “Carlisle Military Academy” and the year 1906. Carlisle Military Academy was one of the early names of the institution that would eventually become UTA. The marble is thought to be the original cornerstone of a new cadet barracks built at Carlisle Military Academy in 1906. Nick Kithas, who owns the home on Samuels Avenue, made the discovery. He and Betty Shankle, UTA and labor collections archivist, connected after an online search revealed the tie to the university. “Finding the cornerstone is momentous because there are few records from the early years of our campus,” Shankle said. “Preserving records from that era was not a priority.” Kithas donated the cornerstone to UTA’s Special Collections. How and when it ended up at his Fort Worth home will likely remain a mystery. “Nick Kithas is the kind of donor archivists love to hear from,” Shankle said. “Historic artifacts are often forever lost. He saved and helped preserve a significant piece of UTA history and, for that, we are extremely grateful.” Together, the cornerstone’s six pieces measure about 16 inches tall, 17 inches wide, and three inches deep. The library had an acrylic case built to house the stone and protect it from any further damage. The cornerstone is on display in Special Collections on the sixth floor of UTA’s Central Library through October 29. After that date, it will be available to view upon request in Special Collections, which is home to tens of thousands of pieces of historical materials such as maps, periodicals, manuscripts and newspapers related to Texas, Mexico and the greater southwest.

InDex Pharmaceuticals gets new patent in the US

The continuation patent, entitled Method for prevention of colectomy (patent number 9795627), will provide an exclusivity period until November 2032, with the possibility of up to 5 years term extension after market approval. “This new patent constitutes a valuable complement to our existing portfolio of granted patents for cobitolimod in the US,” said Peter Zerhouni, CEO of InDex Pharmaceuticals. “The patent covers the use of cobitolimod for treatment of ulcerative colitis in patients with or without a history of steroid use when cobitolimod is not administered in combination with steroids, and it is not limited to certain dosing regimens of cobitolimod.” The USPTO has notified the company that the patent will be issued on October 24, 2017. Corresponding patent applications have been or will be filed in Europe, Japan and Canada and will be diligently prosecuted to grant. For more information:Peter Zerhouni, CEOPhone: +46 8 508 847 35E-mail: peter.zerhouni@indexpharma.com  Cobitolimod in briefCobitolimod is a new type of drug that can help patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis back to a normal life. It is a so-called Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist, that can provide an anti‐inflammatory effect locally in the large intestine, which may induce mucosal healing and relief of the clinical symptoms in ulcerative colitis. Cobitolimod has achieved clinical proof-of-concept in moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis, with a very favorable safety profile. Data from four placebo-controlled clinical trials indicate that cobitolimod has statistically significant effects on those endpoints that are most relevant in this disease, both from a regulatory and clinical perspective. These endpoints include the key clinical symptoms such as blood in stool, number of stools, and mucosal healing, respectively. Cobitolimod is also known as Kappaproct® and DIMS0150.  InDex Pharmaceuticals in briefInDex is a pharmaceutical development company focusing on immunological diseases where there is a high unmet medical need for new treatment options. The company’s foremost asset is the drug candidate cobitolimod, which is in late stage clinical development for the treatment of moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis - a debilitating, chronic inflammation of the large intestine. InDex has also developed a platform of patent protected discovery stage substances, so called DNA based ImmunoModulatory Sequences (DIMS), with the potential to be used in treatment of various immunological diseases.

Minesto’s technology transforms ocean energy into one of the most cost-effective energy resources, new Cost of Energy analysis states

As part of its first commercial-scale project, Minesto together with ITPEnergised has completed an updated Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) analysis of Minesto’s marine energy converter based on new knowledge of the system, its potential and its costs. Projections now show that Minesto’s LCOE will already fall to €100/MWh after 100MW cumulative installed capacity in tidal streams. Previous estimates showed a 50% higher cost level. This means that Minesto’s technology already at an early stage will be more cost effective than established energy such as new nuclear power. Installing arrays of Minesto devices in continuous ocean currents, providing a much higher capacity factor than tidal streams, will have an even greater impact on the LCOE, with costs falling below €50/MWh following the installation of 100MW cumulative capacity. “This claim is unique in the ocean energy industry – but so is our technology. It is the only known and verified marine energy product that can be deployed in continuous low-flow ocean currents, providing cost-effective renewable base load power generation to grids both large and small all over the world”, said Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto. He continued: “These new results convince me that our technology is transforming ocean energy into one of the most cost-effective energy resources. The figures are underpinned by our light-weight design, our unique operations and maintenance concept and the fact that we will be operating at low-flow sites. It should also be noted that this analysis is based on conservative learning rates and initially high operating and maintenance cost levels expected from all new innovative solutions.” The substantial LCOE improvement has two main drivers, said Dr Edlund: “First, the expected performance of each system has improved. This can be attributed to our quarter-scale test results, new simulations data and a new verified turbine blade design developed in-house. Secondly, our operating and maintenance concept has improved considerably.” Commenting on the updated LCOE analysis, Dr Ned Minns, Offshore Group Manager at ITPEnergised said: “Minesto compare well to other tidal energy technologies, with significantly lower capital costs. Their cost reduction trajectory in the coming years is on the conservative side due to the cautious assumptions used throughout. Their forecast learning rate matches the prediction by SI Ocean*, however it is only half of that recently achieved by offshore wind and solar, according to Bloomberg**. High levels of learning are more readily achieved by innovative designs like Minesto’s, and if they follow the path of offshore wind and solar, their cost reductions could be achieved sooner than predicted in the model.” “Minesto’s diligence when using the most accurate data available, and creating a model based on standard practice, has led to the creation of an extremely thorough Cost of Energy forecast model which probably doesn’t have an equal in the industry”, Dr Minns added. * Strategic Initiative for Ocean Energy, a project coordinated by Ocean Energy Europe in close cooperation with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, the UK Carbon Trust, Portugal's Wave Energy Centre, Edinburgh University, Renewable UK and DHI. ** Bloomberg New Energy Outlook 2017 For additional information please contact: Dr Martin EdlundCEO, Minesto AB+46 31 29 00 60press@minesto.com  Magnus MatssonCommunications Manager, Minesto AB+46 70 570 75 08press@minesto.com Background: Minesto’s Cost of Energy model and technology development milestones Minesto’s Cost of Energy model was originally developed in collaboration with ITPEnergised in 2015. It is based on a combination of the Carbon Trust and SI Ocean methodologies, both widely used in the tidal industry, to calculate the LCOE of Minesto’s ocean energy technology. The model is used both as a LCOE calculator and a forecaster, enabling the prediction of the LCOE through the development of new generations of Minesto devices over time.  Functionality and power production of Minesto’s technology have been verified in ocean testing of scale prototypes. To date, five prototypes have been built and tested, and electricity was first produced in 2009. The first test of the technology in authentic ocean environment was completed at Minesto’s test and demonstration facilities in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland by the end of 2011. In 2013, a 3-meter wing prototype was deployed and that scale has since that been undergoing extensive testing  in the tidal streams of Strangford Lough. Minesto's research and product development plan is to continue prototype testing in Northern Ireland, and in parallel build and commission a 0.5MW device in Holyhead Deep, Wales. The purpose is to demonstrate Minesto’s marine energy converter in commercial-scale. This installation, planned to 2018, will be followed by a gradual expansion to a multi-turbine array. In February 2017, Minesto announced plans  to expand the installed capacity in Holyhead Deep to 80MW. About Minesto Minesto is a marine energy technology company with the mission to minimise the global carbon footprint of the energy industry by enabling commercial power production from the ocean. Minesto’s award winning and patented product, called Deep Green, is the only verified marine power plant that operates cost efficiently in areas with low-flow tidal streams and ocean currents. In May 2015, Minesto secured a €13m investment from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh European Funding Office, for the commercial rollout of Deep Green. Minesto was founded in 2007 and has offices in Gothenburg, Sweden, Holyhead, Wales and Portaferry, Northern Ireland. The major shareholders in Minesto are BGA Invest and Midroc New Technology. The Minesto share (MINEST) is traded on the Nasdaq First North Stockholm stock exchange, with G&W Fondkommission as Certified Adviser.

Fazer, Nokia and Nightingale Health join forces for better nutrition and health prospects

Modern work-life puts considerable strain on the performance of our brains: working hours are non-specific and work tasks have become more versatile and abstract. To enable future solutions, Fazer, Nokia and Nightingale aim to increase understanding on holistic well-being and brain health by uniquely combining a specially designed “brainfood” diet, digital biometrics and information from blood in a clinical research setting. The data collected in the study will offer a unique opportunity to analyze the connections between cognition, physiology, sleep quality, stress tolerance and metabolism - and how they can be affected by the quality of nutrition and eating habits. Bringing digital health, biotech and nutrition together to create impact Reaching across various fields, each company will contribute their own expertise. Fazer will provide the "brainfood" meals, healthy food designed to be specifically beneficial for the brain and cognitive performance. Nokia will provide the physiological monitoring of stress, recovery and sleep in real life conditions, using Nokia´s connected health devices and advanced cloud analytics. Nightingale Health will measure comprehensive health information from blood samples taken throughout the trial and carry out statistical analysis of the study overall. Fazer has specially designed “brainfood” meals for the study participants, based on their knowledge of food and nutritional science gained from the Fazer Brainhow programme. “By joining forces with Nokia and Nightingale, we gain an exceptionally wide understanding on the holistic impact of a diet that has been designed to enhance people’s cognitive performance. At its best, this study brings new scientific insights not only for us partners, but also for the whole research community. This study is a crucial part of our Fazer Brainhow programme where we aim to innovate new solutions to help people to maintain and enhance their cognitive well-being”, says Päivi Juolahti, Head of Renewal, Fazer Group. Simon Longbottom, CTO at Nokia Technologies: "We are delighted to be working with Fazer and Nightingale on this groundbreaking research. At Nokia, we care deeply about the health and well-being of individuals and communities. All volunteers who are participating in the study will have access to our unique digital health products while helping researchers better understand how our diets effect our ability to be healthy, happy, and productive. Ultimately, we will all benefit from the learnings and we look forward to using this insight to deliver even better digital health solutions to customers around the world." Nightingale Health, a Finnish biotech company, will use their expertise in blood analysis to uncover health insights from inside the body. “Developing a better understanding of human health is a complex challenge, but it’s typically evaluated from a narrow perspective”, says Nightingale’s CEO Teemu Suna. “To challenge the status quo, we should aim to develop a new holistic approach to monitoring health. One that understands what’s going on inside of us at the molecular level, follows our daily activities, and helps us to see the impact of our diet. A single company can’t achieve this goal on their own, so Nightingale is pleased to partner with Nokia and Fazer, creating a unique joint endeavor that strives to improve health globally.” Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, is partly funding the multi-partner research collaboration. Results of the study are estimated to be available by the end of 2018.

5G Readiness on the Rise

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has released the 5G Readiness Survey 2017. The report shows that many operators have accelerated preparations for the new technology and trials are being carried out by 78 percent of the respondents. Furthermore, 28 percent of the respondents expect to deploy 5G next year. The survey also shows that operators have further developed their business strategies for 5G services. They are now looking beyond the consumer segment and foresee opportunities in the enterprise and industrial segments as well. Thomas Noren, Head of 5G Commercialization, Ericsson, says: “In the 2016 survey, 90 percent of the respondents pointed to consumers as the main segment in their 5G business planning. This year, it is an even split between three segments and operators have identified business opportunities not only in the consumer segment but also with enterprise users and specialized industries.” According to the survey, operators are seeing that the consumer market is becoming saturated. As a result, 5G planning this year is more evenly distributed across specialized industry segments (58 percent), business users (56 percent), and consumers (52 percent). The top three industry sectors that were highlighted by the respondents were media and entertainment, automotive and public transport but many also ranked healthcare as well as energy and utilities among the most attractive sectors for 5G applications. A clear majority of the respondents believe that Internet of Things will play an important role and that third-party collaboration will be essential in this context. In terms of 5G monetization, the respondents believe that additional revenue will be generated from increased market share, migration of 4G subscribers, higher prices for new services, and by expansion into new enterprise and industry segments. The respondents, 50 executives in business and technical areas, were interviewed in July and work for 37 operators globally that have announced publicly they are working on 5G.

Innovation is in our DNA

Twenty years ago a Finnish company – known then as Timberjack – wowed the world with a walking harvester. The ground-breaking technology, such as automation and stability systems, underwent further development and are still applied in John Deere forest machines. The walking forest machine is now displayed in a place of honor at the Deere & Company Pavilion in Moline, Illinois, as a tribute to the Finnish technology. Now part of Deere & Company, John Deere Forestry still leads the industry in developing innovative and reliable machines that improve their customers’ productivity. Machines with new innovative solutions are constantly launched, such as the current G-Series. “The G-Series cut-to-length forest machines respond to our customers’ requirements for reliability, productivity and fuel efficiency. The machines are of high quality, easy to operate and meet the continuously tightening emission regulations,” says Timo Ylänen, Director for John Deere’s cut-to-length forest machines.    Industry leading innovations One of John Deere’s recent innovations is a rotating and levelling cabin. The cabin automatically follows the boom movements giving the operator a straight view to the work area. And it automatically stays level, absorbing terrain changes.  “The rotating and levelling cabin improves operator comfort and productivity especially over a longer period of time. It also helps to attract and to retain the best operators.” Ylänen explains. “When you feel comfortable you will become more productive.”  They also introduced Intelligent Boom Control, a milestone in forwarder technology and now also in harvester technology. This allows operators to control the boom tip directly instead of controlling independent boom joint movements separately. Boom operation has become faster, easier and more accurate.   Made in Finland John Deere Forestry is headquartered in Tampere where about 250 people work in engineering, marketing and administration. Another 450 people work at the factory in Joensuu, which also keeps about 1,000 people busy at its local suppliers. “Close to 90% of our machines are exported,” Ylänen says. “Russia and Sweden are in tight competition to be our number one country for sales.” Forest machines have been manufactured in Joensuu since 1972. Deere & Company have invested tens of millions of euros into product development and the factory, always introducing the newest and most sophisticated technology to the industry. “The company’s extensive investments in the Joensuu factory demonstrate long-term commitment to Finnish forest machine competence. Innovation is one of Deere & Company’s core values and it guides the development of equipment and solutions that improve the productivity and profitability of our customers,” Ylänen says. John Deere Forestry is a long-term main sponsor of the Finnish biathlete Kaisa Mäkäräinen. She has finished on the World Cup podium 70 times and is one of the most popular athletes in Finland. “Biathlon has become a very popular TV sport. As a highly successful athlete and Joensuu resident Kaisa fits in with our corporate image very well,” says Ylänen.    COMPANY ETHICS John Deere is enjoying its eleventh year in a row on the Most Ethical Companies list. Compiled by the Ethisphere Institute, the list measures companies by a variety of categories such as ethics, corporate citizenship, leadership and innovation. “John Deere is 180 years old and you don’t survive that long without strong and sustainable company values,” Ylänen says. “For example, integrity is something we live up to every day. We want to maintain a good reputation in the market and to earn the trust of our customers. This is important for our shareholders and employees, too. We want them to be proud of their company.” Text: David J.

Investigations of specific operations at the Karolinska University Hospital to be discontinued

The two investigations of the surgeon concern five operations on four people during the period 2011-2013. The surgeon was notified of the suspicions against him concerning three counts of causing another’s death, gross crime, alternatively causing bodily harm, gross crime, and one case of causing bodily harm, gross crime. Three out of the four individuals have since died.  − We have reached the conclusion that four of the five operations were negligently carried out, as the surgeon performed the operations using synthetic tracheas, which is in conflict with science and tried-and-tested practice. However, we have been unable to prove that any crimes have been committed. We cannot prove that the effects of his actions, with sufficient degree of probability, would not have occurred had another method been used. Regarding the fourth individual, we are not of the opinion that the surgeon’s actions were negligent. Expert medical opinion is not unanimous regarding what should have been done instead for these seriously ill individuals, which therefore has made the suspicions difficult to prove, says public prosecutor Jennie Nordin. Together with public prosecutors Anders Tordai and Leif Appelgren, Jennie Nordin has analysed a large amount of data. Approximately 80 interviews have been held in Sweden and abroad to obtain details for the investigations.   − The investigations have been comprehensive with many complex medical issues, says Jennie Nordin.

The goal of the co-operation is to make LähiTapiola´s buildings even more efficient, sustainable, innovative and great places to work. By utilizing Nuuka’s software LähiTapiola can optimize their air ventilation units in a way that indoor air quality is improved. The HVAC process data from the building automation system can also be used in machine learning models to automate the process optimization. Nuuka helps to optimize the HVAC processes to work as efficiently as possible in the building. This results in better indoor air quality as well as lower energy and operating costs. Additionally, Nuuka’s building automation system integration knowledge plays important role when exploring possibilities to use LähiTapiola’s properties as virtual power plants for the use of demand-side management in the future. LocalTapiola Real Estate Ltd is engaged in private equity fund management and relating guidance and consultancy. Assets under management are approximately €3 billion.

Hence, we believe we are able to increase the attractiveness of our properties” Comments from Nuuka’s Head of Business Development Mr.  Olli Parkkonen: “Cooperation with LähiTapiola is very interesting for us as LähiTapiola’s attitude towards new, innovative customer value adding services is sincerely open. Nuuka can add value to tenants, owners and different service providers in the buildings by providing them with one unified platform with all the building data. We call this our Connect & Create solution. When you have all the data in one place, you can really optimize, improve and innovate in this space and significantly increase property values. We are very happy that a highly-valued Finnish real estate owner such as LähiTapiola has selected us.” Comments from Cleantech Invest CEO Alexander Lidgren:  “We could not be happier with how Nuuka is appreciated by its existing customers. The amount of value that they can bring to real estate owners is significant and when you begin working with real estate asset managers like LähiTapiola you see even more potential on the horizon.” By combining the powerful data aggregation and analytics capability of Nuuka’s Connect & Create Solution and the potential of LähiTapiola’s significant real estate holdings, significant efficiencies can be found with environmental impact and savings for customers.

Cantargia announces first patient treated and completed a three weeks safety evaluation period with immuno-oncology antibody CAN04

The first sites in the phase I/IIa clinical trial CANFOUR have been initiated and patient recruitment is ongoing. According to the protocol, patients are recruited in groups of three. Following the start of patient recruitment, all three patients in the first group has now each been given at least two infusions of CAN04.The first patient has completed three infusions and has been followed through a safety evaluation period of 21 days. No serious adverse events have been noted and once all three patients have received three infusions and have completed their 21-day safety evaluation period, the next dose group can be recruited In the CANFOUR trial, treatment using Cantargia’s proprietary antibody CAN04, directed towards the molecular target IL1RAP, is investigated in patients with cancer. CAN04 works through a dual immuno-oncology mode of action and stimulates immune cells to eradicate tumor cells as well as counteracts tumor inflammation by blocking interleukin-1 signalling. The indications studied in this trial are non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and triple negative breast cancer. The relevance of targeting IL1RAP has been documented in all these diseases. The primary endpoint for the trial is safety. Other endpoints include pharmacokinetics, efficacy and biomarkers. The first part of the trial is a dose escalation phase, investigating repeated infusions of CAN04 at different dose levels in order to identify the dose to be used in phase II. The results from this part are expected during summer 2018. After data analysis, the second part is planned to further investigate CAN04 as monotherapy treatment in approximately 20 patients with non-small cell lung cancer or pancreatic cancer, as well as a combination therapy arm investigating CAN04 with standard therapy in one of these forms of cancer. The exact choice of indication and combination therapy will be decided after completion of the first part. The trial is conducted at highly regarded and well experienced sites in Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands. Trial information can be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov. “We are excited to have started treatment of patients in this important trial”, Göran Forsberg, CEO of Cantargia, says. “The initiation of sites and recruitment of patients follow our plan”.

Remetinostat phase II data demonstrate efficacy on skin lesions, reduction of itching and high tolerability in patients with early-stage MF-type CTCL

Stockholm, Sweden - Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) today announces that phase II efficacy and safety data in patients with Mycosis Fungoides (MF) type early-stage Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) demonstrated that remetinostat gel 1%, when applied topically twice daily, reduced the severity of CTCL skin lesions. Remetinostat also caused a clinically significant reduction in the severity of pruritus (itching) in those patients with clinically significant pruritus at the start of the study, and was highly tolerable with no systemic adverse effects. These data were contained in an abstract published at the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Cutaneous Lymphoma Task Force meeting being held in London on October 13-15th. The details of the study are scheduled to be presented at the meeting by Dr Madeleine Duvic, Professor of Internal Medicine and Dermatology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The remetinostat phase II trial enrolled 60 patients with stage IA-IIA MF, the predominant variant of CTCL, across five different clinical sites in the USA. Patients were randomized to receive one of remetinostat gel 0.5% twice daily, remetinostat gel 1% once daily, or remetinostat gel 1% twice daily, for up to 12 months. The primary end-point of the study was the proportion of patients with either a complete or partial confirmed response to therapy, assessed using the Composite Assessment of Index Lesion Severity. The study showed a dose response with patients in the remetinostat gel 1% twice daily arm having the highest proportion of confirmed responses including 1 complete response. Based on an intent-to-treat analysis, confirmed response rates in patients were as follows: +--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|Dose Arm|Number of |Number of Patients with Confirmed|% of Patients with|| |Patients per|Response (whereof complete |Confirmed Response|| |Arm |response) | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|1% twice| 20 | 8 (1) | 40% ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|0.5% | 20 | 5 (0) | 25% ||twice | | | ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|1% once | 20 | 4 (0) | 20% ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+ As a secondary objective the effect of remetinostat gel on severity of pruritus was assessed monthly for the duration of the study using the visual analogue scale (VAS). Among patients with clinically significant pruritus at baseline, those who received remetinostat gel 1% twice daily had the highest proportion of patients achieving clinically significant reduction in pruritus from baseline. The proportions of patients who had confirmed, clinically significant, reductions in pruritus from baseline, defined as at least a 30mm reduction in the VAS score sustained for >4 weeks, were as follows: +--------+--------------------------------------+|Dose Arm|% Patients with Confirmed Clinically || |Significant Reduction in Pruritus from|| |Baseline |+--------+--------------------------------------+|1% twice| 80% ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+|0.5% | 50% ||twice | ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+|1% once | 37.5% ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+ Remetinostat was generally well tolerated, with adverse events evenly distributed across the treatment arms. The most common adverse events were skin related and mostly grade 1-2. There were no signs of systemic adverse effects related to remetinostat treatment, including those associated with systemic HDAC inhibitors. Most patients remained on study for the maximum possible duration and the median treatment time was 350 days. “The beneficial effects of remetinostat on both CTCL lesions and the pruritus associated with early-stage CTCL that were observed in this clinical trial are highly encouraging, as was its safety profile” said John Öhd, Chief Medical Officer at Medivir AB. “Given the chronic nature of this cancer and the limited availability of safe, effective and convenient treatments, patients with early-stage CTCL are in need of new treatment options that effectively control the symptoms of the disease and that are safe to use over long periods for time. The results of the phase II study support the progression of remetinostat into a pivotal clinical program.”  Based on the outcomes of the phase II study, Medivir expects to meet with regulatory authorities to discuss the design of a pivotal clinical program for remetinostat in MF-type CTCL.

The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact persons set out above,at 12.45 CET on 13 October 2017. About Mycosis Fungoides (MF) and Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL)Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) is an orphan hematologic cancer that presents primarily in the skin. According to the National Cancer Institute, mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common variant of CTCL. MF affects an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 people in the United States, with an estimated 1,500 new cases annually. Around 75% of affected patients are in early-stages (stages IA-IIA) where the disease is confined to the skin. Patients remain at these stages for extended periods and require long-term, skin-directed treatments for their disease. A small proportion of patients go on to develop cutaneous tumours or systemic disease, and these patients then require systemic anti-cancer therapy, which may include systemic histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors. Pruritus, or itching, is a major symptom that adversely affects quality of life in many CTCL patients. Available topical drugs for early-stage CTCL are not always effective and tolerable, and sometimes worsen pruritus. Medivir estimates that the addressable market for an efficacious and tolerable treatment for early-stage CTCL in the US alone is approximately USD 900m annually.  About remetinostatRemetinostat is a uniquely topical histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor that Medivir is developing for the treatment of early-stage mycosis fungoides (MF) type CTCL. Remetinostat has been designed to be effective in the skin but degraded rapidly in the bloodstream to avoid the adverse effects associated with systemically administered HDAC inhibitors.   About MedivirMedivir is a research-based pharmaceutical company with a focus on oncology. We have a leading competence within protease inhibitor design and nucleotide/nucleoside science and we are dedicated to develop innovative pharmaceuticals that meet great unmet medical needs. Medivir is listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm Mid Cap List.

Husqvarna Group scales back business with large U.S. retail customer

The Consumer Brands Division of the Husqvarna Group will significantly reduce the volume of business with one of its biggest U.S. retail customers, following the strategy to focus resources on accounts with more attractive opportunities. The Division has started to adjust capacity and other measures to mitigate short-term negative financial effects. Because of the reduced volume, the Consumer Brands Division’s net sales for 2018 is expected to decline by some SEK 1 Bn compared to 2017. This will delay the operating income improvement trajectory. “We are committed to a strong, future-oriented Consumer Brands Division, and this means we need to take decisions that are painful in the short term.” says Kai Wärn, President and CEO of Husqvarna Group. The Group’s financial target of an operating margin of at least 10% for the coming years remains unchanged. Additional information will be provided in connection to the Q3 2017 results announcement on October 20. In 2018, the Consumer Brands Division will focus more resources on battery-powered products and robotic lawn mowers under several different brands. Launches include a refreshed Weed Eater® brand with a new line of interchangeable tools and a full line of 58-volt battery-powered handheld products under the Poulan Pro® and Jonsered® brands. “We are developing opportunities in battery products and robotic mowers,” says Jeff Hohler, President Consumer Brands Division, “and while the decision to reduce volume may be a near term setback, we are confident that we will emerge stronger as a Division in the mid to longer term.”

New Volvo 7900 Electric offers greater range and flexibility

Battery capacity, in particular, has been significantly extended compared with before. The new Volvo 7900 Electric is available with a choice of 150, 200 and 250 kWh. This means that the bus can run far longer between charges, allowing it to be utilised more efficiently throughout the day. “This is a very important reinforcement of our electromobility product range, giving our customers maximum flexibility in their daily operations. During peak hours the buses can operate continuously without stopping to recharge. Instead, the batteries can be charged once traffic is at off-peak levels. On shorter routes, they can even run throughout the day and be charged at night,” says Håkan Agnevall, President of Volvo Buses. “As the demand for electric buses has grown very rapidly both in Europe and the rest of the world, it feels really good that we can offer cities an electric-bus system that provides better preconditions than ever to switch to sustainable, quiet and emission-free public transport.” Volvo Buses has also expanded the range of options regarding the way the batteries are charged. Just like before the batteries in the new Volvo 7900 Electric can be fast-charged at the route’s end stops, via the open and competition-neutral OppCharge interface. However, they can now also be charged via cable, CCS, which is the European standard for charging of electric vehicles from the mains grid. “Operators can choose the charge interface that best suits each particular occasion.
