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

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
