Boosting Baltic FP6 – Now a reality

Boosting Baltic FP6 – Now a reality

The ambitious EU project application Boosting Baltic FP6 has now been signed as a contract with the European Commission. Four of the new EU member states – Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland- are partners with Germany, ScanBalt, and Sweden. The project will run for 2½ years and will host its kick off meeting this summer.

Frank Graage, leader of the Steinbeis Transfer Center Technology Management Northeast in Rostock and coordinator of the Boosting Baltic FP6 project says: “Boosting Baltic FP6 is a fantastic opportunity to realize the potentials in cooperation with the new EU member states in our Baltic sea region”.

Boosting Baltic FP6 constitutes an integrated set of networking, training and coaching measures by working parallel on two target groups: The National Contact Points (NCP) of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland and, as a show-case model for sufficient technology transfer, the Life Science research community.

The three other partners of Boosting Baltic FP 6 are ScanBalt, Steinbeis Technology Transfer and the Swedish EU R&D council. Lise Vinkel Clausen, project manager at the ScanBalt office in Copenhagen is delighted that the project has been approved by the European Commission: “ScanBalt is involved in a number of projects and this is our first with a direct focus on increased cross-cooperation with the Life Science communities in all our Baltic Sea partner countries”.

Boosting Baltic FP6 will promote advanced partnerships, entrepreneurship and competitiveness and will increase participation in successful FP6 applications and result in enhanced competitiveness by the Life Science community in the new member states.
