Winning the Battle for Talents - ScanBalt Campus

Peter Frank General Secretary
ScanBalt

    The pace of competition is accelerating and the balance of power, resources, people and talent is shifting away from Europe. The competition for talent is the key to be competitive. Winning the battle for talent means being better to train, attract and circulate talents. ScanBalt Campus faces this challenge. By pooling together resources within Life sciences and biotechnology in the 11 countries around the Baltic Sea - the ScanBalt BioRegion - global competitiveness can be achieved. At today's conference "ScanBalt Campus - Talents on Top of Europe" the work of the project ScanBalt Campus co-financed by EU structural funds were presented.

    By pooling together resources within Life sciences and biotechnology in the 11 countries around the Baltic Sea - the ScanBalt BioRegion - global competitiveness can be achieved. At today's conference "ScanBalt Campus - Talents on Top of Europe" the work of the project ScanBalt Campus co-financed by EU structural funds were presented. Eight cross-border multi-partner networks with concrete activities in research and education have been established.

    Three hundred students have participated in ScanBalt Campus cross border activities promoting shared curricula between universities and industry.

    Professor Bo Samuelsson, Göteborg University, Sweden, and chairman of ScanBalt Campus says: "ScanBalt Campus has in the last two years shown a remarkable capacity to be a catalyst for trans-national collaboration in ScanBalt BioRegion within research and education. We are very optimistic for the future".

    Professor Flemming Besenbacher, the iNANO-centre, Aarhus, Denmark continues: "We have in Aarhus excellent and leading competences in nanosciences and believe that collaboration in ScanBalt BioRegion is a tool to reach global competitiveness".

    The conference was organised by Göteborg University (Sweden), coordinator of the project and the iNANO centre in Aarhus (Denmark), one of the 31 partners.
