Regeneration of tissues and organs remains one of the great  challenges of clinical medicine and have been investigated for virtually every organ system in the human body, and progress  is made possible by advances in materials science, polymer chemistry, and molecular biology.   The latest methods concern the  regulation of the biological and chemical composition of biomaterials, together with  techniques for modulating mechanical properties of engineered constructs. 

Baltic MedTec Cluster is a special interest group, consisting of research departments, SMEs and representatives of academia and administration from Germany, Poland, and Lithuania (project partners in the EU South Baltic Region project Eco4Life), collaborating with institutions from the Northern Baltic Sea.
The aim of the Baltic Biomaterial Cluster is to develop a common transregional approach for regenerative medicine in the whole Baltic Sea Region, according to the policy of the ScanBalt flagship project "Baltic Sea Health Region" as part of the EU Baltic Sea Strategy. ScanBalt is a leading network of clusters, universities, companies and public authorities working within life sciences to promote the Baltic Sea Region as a globally competitive Green valley and Health region.

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as Center of Competence for Regenerative Medicine  in Germany is supposed to become pilot region for the Baltic Biomaterial Cluster, with BioConValley® as central contact for life science and health economy in North Eastern Germany and coordinator of the initiative.
The federal state is closely linked to emerging health economies in Poland and the Baltics, as well as to the dynamic Medtech region in the North of the Baltic Sea.
