The hunt for talents decides the future of the Baltic Sea Region

17.10.2007
The mounting challenges implied by the lack of talents to safeguard continued economic growth in the Baltic Sea Region is the overriding theme when top politicians, high ranking business leaders, experts and academia meet at Baltic Development Forum Summit 4-6 November.

The quest for talents will be viewed from various angles such as how to boost entrepreneurship and innovation. Furthermore how to tackle the environmental and energy challenges in the region as well as the need for a reinforced financial integration will also be on the agenda for the top-level Summit talks. The annual State of the Region Report 2007, built on the WEF Global Competitiveness Report, will be released at the Summit.

The 9th Baltic Development Forum Summit will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on 4-6 November 2007 at the invitation of the Government of Estonia and Tallinn City. It will be held in Hotel Reval Olümpia, Tallinn. Participation in the Summit is by invitation only. Some 450 partners and members will be attending the Summit.

Representatives from print, radio and TV media are invited to cover the event free of charge. A fully equipped press room will be available at the premises. As security will be strict, advance accreditation for media representatives is mandatory and will require on-line registration on http://www.summit2007.bdforum.org. Participants at the Summit have special room rates at Hotel Reval Olümpia, and Estonian Air offers a 15 percent discount rate (booking code: BDF2007).

The Summit programme and a media information package are avialable on http://www.bdforum.org. For further information contact Helena Zimmerdahl Torgerson, Head of Media and Communications Baltic Development Forum: hzt@bdforum.org +45 27 64 80 76.

Among the confirmed high-level speakers at the Summit are:

Toomas Hendrik Ilves, President, Estonia
Fredrik Reinfeldt, Prime Minister, Sweden
Matti Vanhanen, Prime Minister, Finland
Andrus Ansip, Prime Minister, Estonia
Bendt Bendtsen, deputy Prime Minister, Denmark
Adena Friedman, vice president Nasdaq
Carl Eric Stålberg, Executive Chairman Swedbank
Mats Jansson , President and CEO SAS
Mikael Lilius, President and CEO, Fortum
Lars Petter Ørving, Nordic CEO Manpower

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
