Under the project name "Boost Biosystems", a ScanBalt BioRegion consortium creates the basis for an intensive integration of researchers and small enterprises in the field of biosystem technologies.
The combination of biological materials and microsystem technology is described as "Biosystem technology". Sustainable life science applications - such as cell chip technologies for drug developments or miniaturized bioprocesses in diagnostic devices - should be developed through European research cooperations.
In doing so, research results are brought to the market, product portfolios of biotech companies will be enlarged and hereby regional economies will be strengthened. This interdisciplinary cooperation between clinics, small biotech companies and microsystem technology suppliers is not yet sufficiently implemented and an enormous potential for innovations has not yet been developed.
The European Commission underlines: "The convergence of microsystems and biotechnology will have significant impact on bio-industry and pharmaceutical industry as well as on personalized medicine. The basis for the project exists in the Scanbalt region and reaching the objectives could dramatically improve European competitiveness in this area where USA has taken the lead so far."
First of all, the project managers of "Boost Biosystems" will create a market overview and map the market players. In a second step seminars and workshops will be offered on a regional level, finally connects the interested actors from the differend regions and branches during international meetings. The partners in this 6th EU Research Framework Program are ScanBalt, Tartu Biotechnology Park, Norgenta Hamburg, Culminatum Helsinki and the Center of of Technology Transfer Gdansk. "Boost Biosystems" is led by Steinbeis Team Northeast in Rostock.Contact: Henner Willnow
