The promotion of public health on a high level and the exploitation of modern life sciences are prerequisites for the Baltic Sea Region to become a globally competitive and prosperous macro-region. Furthermore the demographic challenges can only be met in an open innovation market across all sectors of science, technology but also social wellbeing. 

The purpose of ScanBalt Health Region is to (1) bundle regional competences within life sciences and health; (2) elaborate, align and integrate smart innovation and development strategies meeting the needs and demands of both metropolitan and rural regions; (3) establish and promote a professional, trans-regional, service based collaboration platform (ScanBalt IBIS = International Business Innovation Support); (4) connect the interests for collaboration and interaction between Priority Areas in the EUSBSR Action plan within health, inno, SME, bio, agri and tourism. Finally ScanBalt Health Region is a platform for enhancing branding and visibility of the Baltic Sea Region in order to attract and retain human, financial and industrial resources. 

ScanBalt Health Region is to be regarded as a model for a knowledge-based health and bio economy leading to high added value jobs based on a shared and bottom up developed strategy. Lead: BioCon Valley® GmbH Greifswald (GE), Lithuanian Biotechnology Association (LT) and ScanBalt fmba (DK, BSR);Deadline for progress review: annually
