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
Igor Yurgens, First Group Vice President Renaissance Capital, Russia

Im Focus: Solving the mystery of quantum light in thin layers

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)

It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...

Im Focus: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
