More than a third of the population suffers from fractions at least once in a life time. Additionally, ageing society leads to an increase of age-related fractures. Baltic Sea countries are thus challenged to initiate innovations within fracture healing.
The project “Baltic Sea Competence Center” (BFCC) responds to these challenges by aiming at accelerated and effective transnational collaboration for innovation within fracture management in the Baltic Sea Region. The BFCC develops and implements the first transnational registry for fractures. Data of patients and methods and development of treatments will be registered and analysed transnationally. The aim is to develop a platform where results of scientific research and background knowledge will be gathered in order to foster an effective collaboration between hospitals, industry and health organisations within the Baltic Sea region.
The project is funded within in the scope of the EU programme Interreg Baltic Sea Region. 14 partner organisations including hospitals, companies, research institutions and cluster organisations from seven different countries in the Baltic Sea Region are working together for 36 months and with a total budget of about EUR 3.6 million. DSN supported the application process and is now responsible for the project and financial management as well as for the communication of the project.
