The BIOCONNECT project aims to help create a more robust, integrated, and inclusive Baltic ecosystem/cluster for biotechnology innovation as one of the key ingredients for the present and future economic competitiveness of the region. A strong and vibrant bioeconomy holds the colossal potential to reinforce the EU’s focus on sustainability and circularity, ensure a healthier, more active population – as well as pave the way for an exponential cascade of new applications so transformative as to be dubbed the Bio Revolution.
