Lets talk

In the session “Research infrastructure for innovation” partners from several projects pitch their project to an expert panel. The pitchers focus on explaining how to increase cohesion. The panellists and the audience ask questions to dig deeper into the transnational work of each project. The discussion provides detailed insight into achievements in place and to come. Ideally, this will also help projects to learn and exchange about potentials to be more successful. The participating projects address challenges for the higher education and research area in the Baltic Sea region, specifically scientific technologies, analytical instruments and consulting services. They take different approaches to innovate performances in research, e.g., establishing underground laboratories, science and technology parks, supporting enterprises in technology and data. An important aspect of their approach and practical work is reaching out to stakeholders like the business and policy level.
