Talents and business up-grading the way to develop the Baltic Sea Region

06.11.2007
Business-leaders and policy-makers in the Baltic Sea Region need to sharpen their joint efforts to attract the best and the brightest.

The future economic growth of the Region depends on its ability to upgrade high-tech and knowledge-intensive industries - and this can only be done with an increase in the labour force, said Uffe Ellemann-Jensen, Chairman of Baltic Development Forum at the opening of its 9th annual Summit.

The focus of the Baltic Development Forum Summit 2007, this year held in Tallinn, Estonia, is the need for attracting talents to the Baltic Sea Region, and the necessity for a deepened understanding of business conditions in order to safeguard a continued economic growth in the Baltic Sea Region.

- Efforts to attract and welcome highly skilled innovators, researches and entrepreneurs to the Baltic Sea Region need to be paralleled with further steps to integrate the Region and Europe as a whole. Only a strong and coherent Baltic Sea Region can meet the challenges and opportunities posed by the globalization, says Uffe Ellemann-Jensen.

During the three day long Summit (4-6 November) 440 participants representing leading businesses in the Baltic Sea Region, international organisations, government, academia and media gather to discuss and outline strategies for developing the Baltic Sea Region. Among the speakers this year are the Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Finnish Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen and EU-Commissioner Andris Piebalgs, Executive Chairman of Swedbank Carl Eric Stålberg, National Executive Nordic Region General Electric, Hans Enocson, President & CEO of SAS Group Mats Jansson, and Esko Aho, President of SITRA and author of the European Commission Innovation Strategy. The President of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves gave a speech at the opening of the event at Estonia Concert Hall.

The Baltic Development Forum Summit is co-hosted by the Government of Estonia and Tallinn city.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
