Health and Bio Economy on Top of Europe
ScanBalt BioRegion is composed of the health and bio economy communities in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Northern Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, northern Germany and north-western part of Russia.
There are more than 60 universities and over 3000 companies active in ScanBalt BioRegion.
The countries of the region share a history of economic and political cooperation, illustrated by the Hanseatic League of the middle ages and renaissance, and by its present day equivalent, the Hanse Parliament. The Baltic Sea has facilitated social, cultural, and economic integration for more than 1000 years, interrupted only infrequently by political strife.
All the necessary conditions for strong economic growth exist in the region: stable democracies, institutional structures advantageous to business, large wealthy markets close at hand, world class infrastructure, excellent educational opportunities, strong industrial traditions, good positive work ethic, and a common history of trade and cooperation.
