Boost to the blue bioeconomy

The Better Off Blue online event series is a collaborative effort between three Interreg Baltic Sea Region projects (GRASS, Alliance+ and Blue Platform), spearheaded by the SUBMARINER Network for Blue Growth.
Clean Shipping Project Platform (CSHIPP) was established to improve cross-sectoral collaboration and the utilisation of results and findings from several individual projects and organisations on a wider scale. As CSHIPP collaboration is now coming to an end, it’s time to look back and reflect a little bit on what has been achieved.
EUSBSR Flagship Project BEST – Better Efficiency for Industrial Sewage Treatment – was completed at the end of September 2020. The flagship contributed to PA Nutri Action 2: Reduce nutrient emissions from urban areas and other point sources, and also implemented the horizontal aspect of cooperating with non-EU Member States by including water utility and industrial partners from Russia.
Innovative and creative urban planning - take a look at some examples from cities in the Baltic Sea Region that have worked together with the UrbCulturalPlanning project!
Project platform is a relatively new concept: the first platforms started in 2018. As the first platforms are about to finalise, it is a good time to look back and think about lessons learnt. Agnieszka Ilola from BSR Water platform shared her experiences.

Urban innovations through culture

Can we make an impact on urban regeneration with something as seemingly intangible as culture? The fourteen partners of EUSBSR Flagship UrbCulturalPlanning in nine partner countries certainly think so.
The new EUSBSR Action Plan talks about “mainstreaming neighbourhood cooperation”. But what does this mean in practice? One example of the work was the webinar "Norway & EU - EUSBSR Action Plan enabling neighbourhood cooperation” organized on 25 February 2021.
Ambitious visions, innovations and cooperation are needed in the transport sector to address emerging challenges and reach EU goals. Policy Area Transport share insights about the future direction of transport in the context of EUSBSR.
The prosperity of the Baltic Sea Region is strongly dependent on efficient, affordable and sustainable cross-border connections within the region and beyond. “A high standard of transport is an important factor in contributing to the development of foreign trade and international exchange of services and knowledge,” says PA Transport Coordinator Algirdas Šakalys.
