Networking of Research and Industry in Baltic Sea Region Improved

Project speeds up the market readiness of research-based products. Three million euros for Baltic TRAM

A project led by DESY and aiming to link research centers and universities with industrial enterprises is to receive some EUR 3 million in funding from the European Union’s Baltic Sea region program. As part of “Baltic TRAM”, national hubs are due to be set up in Sweden, Germany and Poland over the next three years, especially at universities. These hubs will serve as a network offering measurement and other services to industrial customers, locally and also by international exchange.

International Industrial Research Network

In the project, an international network for industrial research will be set up. One university per country will coordinate the research and measuring orders by the industrial users. If measurements cannot be carried out locally, they will be forwarded into the international network. The organisational structures to be developed for this purpose will be tested in pilot activities before being expanded step by step.

DESY Chairs ScienceLink Network

The Baltic TRAM (Transnational Research Access in the Macroregion) project is one of several activities of the ScienceLink network, which is currently chaired by DESY. ScienceLink is a cooperative venture involving leading universities, research centres and regional development partners in the Baltic Sea region, whose aim is to turn scientific findings into innovations more swiftly. Through Baltic TRAM and ScienceLink, DESY is helping to set up cooperative research ventures with the industry in the Baltic Sea region which can benefit both sides.
