Baltic Fracture Competence Centre
The number of bone fractures and linked health disorders are going to increase in the future due to an ageing society. The project will set up local registries and link them together in one transnational data registry. Hospitals and companies in the Baltic Sea region will use the registry to identify needs and potentials for innovation within fracture management.
Baltic Science Network
The project will foster the realisation of common higher education and research area in the Baltic Sea Region, and its research and innovation performance. The overall aim is to support the realisation of the European Research Area via intensified cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region, increase the research and innovation performance and strengthen the political ownership in the field of science policy.
Advancement of non-technological innovation performance and innovation capacity in fruit growing and processing sector in selected Baltic Sea Region countries
The project aims at developing the fruit growing potential in the Baltic Sea Region to secure the availability of healthy, high quality fruit and fruit related products through research driven innovations.
Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network
The project establishes a network of underground laboratories across the Baltic Sea region, which works as an open innovation platform facilitating scientific technology transfer and best practices exchange. It improves access of small and medium sized enterprises to the laboratories and exploits potential for incubating innovative businesses in various fields, e.g. mining, tunnel construction, radiation shielding systems testing, and thermal energy production.
Product Validation in Health
ProVaHealth stimulates cooperation among health laboratories in the Baltic Sea region, which test new products and technologies in real-life contexts. The project shares best practices to improve business models of the labs and helps open access to the services for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from the entire Baltic Sea region to ensure health innovation and growth of health SMEs with global potential.
Laboratory network for testing, characterisation and conformity assessment of electronic products developed by SMEs
No electronic product can be successfully placed in global markets if it does not conform with international standards. This typically requires extensive testing of product prototypes. In the project, eight universities from the Baltic Sea region set up an innovation support network to provide testing and consultation for small and medium sized enterprises in the electronics sector during early product development.
Improved Results in Innovation Support - transnational exchange and joint development between Innovation Infrastructure Organisations
Business incubator organisations are crucial supporters for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small and medium sized enterprises that drive economic growth and create jobs. In the project, incubators from all countries around the Baltic Sea work together to improve and strengthen their management and support capacity, i.e. to jointly nurture new skills, help create new companies, and to support in opening up new markets.
Speeding up Copernicus Innovation for the BSR Environment and Security
Since 2014, the satellites and sensors of the European Copernicus programme have delivered Earth observation data free of charge to anyone. The wealth of data holds tremendous potential for new services in the environmental, transport, energy and other sectors. The project qualifies regional science and technology parks in the Baltic Sea region in running tailored acceleration programmes for small and medium sized enterprises in the emerging Earth Observation market.
Baltic Large Scale Computing
Innovative businesses such as ship design, marine engineering and biotechnology require access to large scale computing to process large quantities of data. This access is currently limited to global enterprises and large research centres. The project BalticLSC creates a supercomputing environment comprising hardware prototypes, software tools and application recommendations. It offers these services to small and medium sized enterprises for new product development. In this way, small research centres can use their computing resources more efficiently.
Innovation Framework for Challenge Oriented Intelligent Manufacturing
The INforM project provides support to small and medium sized mechatronics and mechanical engineering companies in the ongoing digital transformation process. The continuous digitalisation of value chains called Industry 4.0 brings with it great challenges for smaller companies. The project plans to enable companies to benefit from the trend towards smart factories, which operate mainly based on intelligent, IT and web-based processes.
Commercial Analytical Research Organisations Transnational Strategy
CAROTS aims to establish a new type of private or public-private company in the Baltic Sea region: Commercial Analytical Research Organisations (CARO). CAROs, as intermediary bodies between industry and academia, provide enterprises with much quicker yet complete assistance in analytical research in the fields of e.g. new materials, nanotech and life sciences.
