The Baltic Sea Region - A Science Powerhouse

Research and Science
Date: Monday, 26 November 2018 10:00 - 17:30

Venue: Solvay Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) is one of the most competitive, innovative science macroregions in the world with an excellent structure of leading universities and research institutions. Cooperation in research and innovation in this region is unique and can serve as a role model. Distributed research facilities are transnationally connected via the Baltic Science Network (BSN) and the Baltic TRAM networks. It allows to combine and utilise the strengths of EU 15 and EU 13 countries in order to foster research and innovation and bridge the innovation gap where necessary. Both projects show that the BSR has potential to be a model for developing and implementing innovative measure in collaborative research and innovation programmes at national, macro-regional and EU level. The BSR highlights the importance of transnational cooperation for developing a prosperous, knowledge-based European society ready to manage future challenges. 

The recently published FP9 proposal "horizon Europe" gives a strong signal in regards to emphasising the relevance of research and innovation in the EU, underlining the importance of unlocking the innovation potential of the research infrastructures, both in scientific research and research-industry collaboration. BSN and Baltic TRAM will use the conference to showcase the macro-region's knowledge and the projects' findings and present possibilites of transferring them to other European regions.
