Contact points will be established in each of the regions to build up a regional network and realise vivid cross border cooperation to strengthen entrepreneurship and economy in the South Baltic region. The project was approved on April, 21st by the Steering Committee South Baltic Cross-border Co-operation Programme at their voting in Gdansk/Poland . It has a three year runtime and a volume of 934 TEUR.
Life Sciences and Environmental Technologies belong to the most promising fields of innovation for the economic development in Europe. The academic centres around the Baltic Sea have earned a lot of expertise in the recent years. Northern Baltic Sea Regions, like Medicon Valley - the Life Science Cluster at the Öresund - have developed into leading life science clusters in Europe. Entrepreneurial development in the South Baltic Sea region is young. Applied research in the academic centers is strong and shows potential for development of a strong Knowledge Based BioEconomy – a key vision stated by EU in her Cologne paper from 2007.
In the project Eco4Life the partners Pomeranian Medical University of Szczecin in Poland, University of Klaipeda in Lithuania and BioCon Valley Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Germany are going to promote the regional potential and will bundle their strengths to create a strong and competitive South Baltic Region by mobilizing cross border cooperation in science and business. In particular, the partners will install contact points in the cities of Greifswald, Szczecin and Klaipeda that will document relevant actors and their competencies in the field of life sciences and environmental technologies, organise joint events for researchers, entrepreneurs and local authorities, exchange best practise examples from the Baltic Sea Region, will build up training programmes for entrepreneurs, and develop regional and cross-regional strategies to overcome the existing gaps to Northern Baltic Sea Region.
The project envisages being a part for the implementation of the “Baltic Sea Health Region Flagship” lead by Germany and Lithuania within the EU-Baltic Sea Region strategy. The project is strongly supported by the local authorities, and young companies and ScanBalt, the life science network in the Baltic Sea Region. The lead partner of the project is BioCon Valley.Contact:

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
