Internationalization a top priority: Discuss the strategy for macro-regional collaboration at Life Sciences Baltics 2018
During the summer 2018 ScanBalt conducted a survey in order to fine tune the activities of the association to the needs of its members and the stakeholders.
The top priority according to the survey is the internationalization of regional networks and businesses by promoting trans-national networking between clusters and networks, public authorities, research and industries.
The respondents also ranked activities such as branding and visibility, business support, project accelerator and public affairs. Each divided into 3 sub-activities. In addition the respondents have proposed a number of new activities.
The full results of the ScanBalt stakeholder survey will be discussed at a session during Life Science Baltics 2018 the 27th of September 9:00 – 10:00 am. The session is entitled “Baltic Sea Region Macro-regional Accelerator and Strategy Development” and provides input for the updated ScanBalt strategy 2019 – 2021.
The results are presented by Annika Kask, responsible for the survey, who is a PhD student in experimental psychology at the University of Tartu (UT), Estonia. She has previously worked as a Senior Specialist for R&D projects at UT, where she consulted scientists on European Commission funding.
The session opens the ScanBalt Forum parallel track at Life Science Baltics 2018.
The survey will be follow-up by interviews of selected stakeholders.
Looking forward to see you at LSB2018!
