The European Territorial Cooperation INTERREG has awarded EUR 3.6 million to the German-Scandinavian “Hanseatic League of Science (HALOS)” research project that includes academic and corporate partners from Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark and the University of Hamburg. The alliance will benefit especially from the co-operation of the research institutes Max IV, the European Spallation Source (ESS), DESY, and European XFEL, whose radiation sources will make innovative research possible.
Establishing research opportunities
The HALOS project will forge even closer scientific co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region, initiated by the Baltic Science Network (BSN) and established by the Ministry for Science, Research and Equality. The BSN has developed transnational strategies for research and innovation excellence in the region through workshops, surveys and studies on “Life Sciences, Photon and Neutron Science & Future of the Welfare State”. HALOS is a first practical implementation of these strategies.
