The Baltic Sea Region is home to a number of the European Union's large research infrastructures, including the DESY synchrotron, the XFEL next-generation X-ray machine and the European Spallation source, but it is proving difficult to create links to industry and capitalise on the potential of these powerful machines to drive innovation, according to Helmut Dosch, Chairman of the DESY Board of Directors.

Research facilities, innovation agencies and companies in the Baltic Sea Region have put together the Science Link Network, a platform that facilitates collaboration between research and industry. Companies can more easily access Europe’s leading large-scale research infrastructures and can tap into their know-how and techniques free of charge.
