Be proud of the Baltic Sea Region!
This was a key message of ScanBalt General Secretary Peter Frank at the Baltic Science Network’s Transnational Workshop: Researchers‘ Mobility in the Baltic Sea Region 10th of February in Vilnius. He refered to the fact that BSR has a long tradition for collaboration which is a competitive advantage for the region.
“We can do things in the Baltic Sea Region which are difficult to replicate in other parts of Europe. The collaboration in the Baltic Science Network is an excellent example” he stated.
He went on to describe ScanBalt as an accelerator for public-private innovation partnerships, a model which is now being exported to other macro-regions. A basic requisite is a strong BSR market for health care products and services.
