Fractures and linked health disorders are going to increase in the future due to an ageing society. The project “Baltic Fracture Competence Centre” (BFCC) will set up local fracture registries at five hospitals around the Baltic Sea Region and link them together in one transnational fracture registry.

This first transnational registry will support hospitals and companies in the Baltic Sea Region in identifying needs and potentials for innovation within fracture management. Furthermore, clinicians will support the innovation process by identifying clinical needs.

As a future platform for fracture management BFCC will start collaboration between industry and hospitals by carrying out three demonstration pilots.


Providing new impulses – Project Advisory Board to meet up

On January, 10-11 the partners of the BFCC project will come together for a project meeting in Hamburg, Germany to catch up on the latest activities within the different work packages and to discuss their further proceeding. For the first time also the members of the Project Advisory Board (PAB) will join. The PAB consists of experts aiming to give impulses and advices to the project from a stakeholder’s point of view in order to contribute to the project’s strategic development. The conclusions and outcomes of the PAB meeting will be taken adequately into consideration in the decision making process during the BFCC project to maximise the impact of the project results.
