ScanBalt BioRegion at European Presidency Conference

The conference is organised by The Baltic Sea Region Innovation Network, BSR InnoNet, under the Slovenian Chairmanship and hosted by the Swedish Government. The conference will present a European Cluster Memorandum to be signed by a number of regional organisations and authorities within innovation and economic development.

The round table will discuss how ScanBalt BioRegion works to enhance cross-border innovation and to strengthen the regional clusters. In addition it will present Cancer prevention as a concrete example where supranational activation, coordination and concentration of scientific, industrial, financial and political resources need to go hand in hand. Cancer Prevention is an arena where innovation, research and policy meet and where the Baltic Sea Region has all the capacities for an outstanding performance.

Hans-Robert Metelmann, Professor at Greifswald University, Chairman of ScanBalt, says “We take the invitation to discuss ScanBalt BioRegion at the European Presidency conference as a positive recognition of the work of ScanBalt and will do our outmost to live up to expectations. ScanBalt BioRegion has the potential to make a difference for the people in the Baltic Sea Region within cancer prevention and cancer politics. Cross-border collaboration to prevent cancer may be an answer to some of the challenges we are facing due to life style related diseases”.
