SCANBALT FORUM 8 to 10 Oct 2014, Groningen, registration open!
The outlines of the 2014 SCANBALT FORUM have been finalized. The program will focus on scientific and business development aspects of active and healthy ageing. About seventy speakers from the Northern- Netherlands and the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) will present results of fundamental and applied research, as well as on education and entrepreneurship during this three days event. This all in the stimulating environment of the University Medical Center Groningen and the historic Academia Building of the Groningen University.
This year the Groningen university celebrates its 400thanniversary, while at the same time the Netherlands celebrate their 400 years of diplomatic connections with Sweden. Reason enough to come to Groningen. In 2013 the Northern Netherlands have been acknowledged by the European Commission as a Healthy Ageing reference region, an example for Europe how universities, industry and politics cooperate in finding solutions for the demographic change, for the ageing society, for prevention of chronic illnesses, for stimulating business development to find new diagnostic tools and devices that allow elderly maintain independent and to stay at home.
Most of these issues will be highlighted at the ScanBalt Forum or can be initiated during the EDR matchmaking event that facilitates finding partners that are interested in cross border collaboration.
