The Baltic TRAM project offers companies free access to state-of-the-art analytical research facilities across the Baltic Sea Region, providing technical and scientific expertise to help solve challenges associated with developing new products or services. The project now accepts applications.
Companies selected for support will receive scientific advice tailored to their specific business needs. More precisely, they will be provided with free measurements of material samples on micro, nano- or molecular scale, and consultations with experts in analytical research facilities and research institutes. Through these services, companies will be able to upscale the knowledge of their materials’ properties and help improve their product portfolio or in-house manufacturing processes.
A network of Industrial Research Centers (IReCs) stand ready to provide support in the process. The IReCs are business-support units that can help applicants throughout the entire application process – from formulating a product or process challenge to designing follow-up activities that support the companies in applying the knowledge gained in their product or manufacturing processes.
Companies based in EU member states are eligible to apply. To initiate the procedure, contact a national Industrial Research Center (IReC) for consultations. More information about the process, as well as contact details to the IReCs is available here.
Baltic TRAM is an international project, partly funded by the European Union’s Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme. The overall objective is to boost innovation, secure the implementation of smart specialization strategies, and encourage entrepreneurship by supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, thus contributing to the regional effort of making the Baltic Sea Region innovative, sustainable and competitive.
