Projects

BioMed SA has been a partner to several European projects in FP 5, FP6 and FP7. TBP collaborates closely with biotechnology parks and innovation relay centres (IRCs) in Europe as well as in the USA and Canada to develop international projects and cooperation links for the benefit of biotechnology SMEs.

 

Ongoing projects:

The Competence Centre on Health Technologies (CCHT; former Competence Centre on Reproductive Medicine, CCRMB) is a research and technology organization (RTO) conducting high-level customer-driven research in three strategic domains – Development Areas (DAs): personalized medicine, drug development, and reproductive medicine.

The project is a joint cooperation venture of the existing e-health and life-science clusters from the Central Baltic region: Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol and Tartu Biotechnology Park from Estonia, Turku Science Park from Finland, Swedish Medtech from Sweden and Enixus Baltics from Latvia who create a cross-border meta-cluster to solve common challenges of supporting expansion of their innovative companies.

The project CB Health Access focuses on supporting health technology companies to enter into new distant markets in South Korea, US, India and Uganda with their products.

Main activities include:

  • Market access training about health sector specifics in the target market
  • Gathering market information (legal setup, rules for health products, financial schemes in health, competition, technological Environment, partnerships, etc.)
  • Individual help from target market experts and local coach
  • Business mission to the target market, incl. 121 meetings.

The project is supported by Interreg Central Baltic Programme http://centralbaltic.eu/ in total amount of 1.2 mln EUR.

Connected Health Cluster (CH) is a permanent, mutually beneficial partnership between stakeholders in Estonia, who are committed to accelerating the adoption of connected health solutions, at scale on commercial terms.  CH is part of the European Connected Health Alliance and ScanBalt network. The aim of the Connected Health  Cluster is:

  • to impact healthier life and improve patient care
  • to provide economic growth through the adoption of connected health solutions
  • to accelerate global access for the Estonian cluster members

Our vision is to transform healthcare services through the implementation of connected health solutions. By encouraging innovation through entrepreneurship and providing a collective forum for connected health advocates, CH brokers solutions for these challenges, thereby creating financial efficiencies for Estonian government and ultimately helping healthcare providers to deliver quality care for people, patients and families in Estonia and internationally. Connected Health Cluster has got 60+ partners, which includes 43 companies (startups, health IT, biotech), R&D partners and need partners, i.e. hospitals, GPs, big Pharma, spas, sportsmen, etc.

The activities of Connected Health cluster are co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund in total amount of 0.6 mln EUR.

BFCC aiming for Innovation within fracture management and a transnational fracture registry platform composed of 6 hospitals from Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden.

In ageing societies, the need for innovative products and clinical procedures for fracture treatment is increasing due to more age-related fractures and comorbidities such as osteoporosis or post-surgery complications like infections. Innovations must reduce the total cost of care or clearly improve the quality of care at a justifiable cost and bring new solution to outstanding medical challenges.

BFCC will establish a transnational collaboration platform between hospitals and industry, which will be tested in 3 transnational pilots, with 6 hospitals and 4 companies involved. With its lead partner Life Science Nord Management, its 14 further project partners and its 26 associated organisations the BFCC has an excellent basis to establish a Baltic Sea Region wide platform for future collaboration and thereby foster innovation within fracture management.

As part of the EUSBSR flagship project ScanBalt HealthRegion the project will open the research and innovation infrastructure and all identified innovation needs to all Baltic Sea Region companies.

The project is supported by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme www.interreg-baltic.eu

EUSBSR flagship label cmyk

The ALLIANCE project brings together blue biotechnology actors from across the BSR to address key challenges and opportunities and develop innovative marine bio-based products and services. The ALLIANCE project will advance sustainable blue growth in the BSR by facilitating a selected number of concrete successful demonstration cases for transnational development of commercial blue biotechnology products in the whole BSR.

The project has 22 partners from renowned BSR blue biotechnology research institutes, biotechnology hubs, business parks and the SUBMARINER Network. In addition, selected partners from other European countries bring in pan-European expertise. Together they cover all BSR countries and offer the critical mass of interdisciplinary expertise in all blue biotechnology fields such as natural product chemistry, marine biodiscovery, biology of marine invertebrates, macro- and microalgae, process design, aquaculture, genomics and the various fields of application, such as biofuels, food and cosmetics. Moreover, academic partners – including GEOMAR – possess excellent research infrastructures, pilot/testing facilities and biomaterial to be offered to the ALLIANCE to speed up success cases for product development. This is complemented by competence in business planning, technology consultation, sales and marketing, patent profiling and legal advice, all equally essential for development of product value chain. The ALLIANCE contributes to the realisation of the full potential of the blue biotechnology sector by creating a permanent BSR-wide hub with a financially viable, target group oriented integrated service offer. The visibility of its activities and success stories will showcase perspectives of blue biotechnology.

The Estonia-Latvia programme is one of the 60 cross-border cooperation programmes operating along EU internal borders. The programme is funded under the goal of the European Territorial Cooperation, better known as Interreg with 230 500 euros, and aims at strengthening cooperation among regions across the borders of Estonia and Latvia. 35 million euros are made available by the European Regional Development Fund for funding cooperation projects among Estonian and Latvian partner organizations. The EstLat BioBoost project is funded under the “active and attractive business environment” priority.

EstLat BioBoost will promote cross border entrepreneurial collaboration in life sciences and biotechnology between Latvia and Estonia. The aim of the EstLat BioBoost project is to increase the competitiveness of start-ups and SMEs in the life sciences sector in EE and LV through development of cross-border cooperation and the delivery of training and other support services. Among the support services will be individual coaching/mentoring, and a business mission to Copenhagen to one of the top life sciences business development organisations in Europe.
