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 six 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.
