Funding news from Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme

The Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme Monitoring Committee selected 39  new projects for funding in the thematic fields of capacity for innovation, management of natural resources and sustainable transport, including PA Nutri flagship project BEST. The new projects will complement 35 projects from the first call and will contribute to a more innovative, better accessible and connected Baltic Sea region.

BEST (Better efficiency for sewage treatment) aims at better control of industrial discharges by jointly developing sustainable cooperation and optimal treatment for industrial discharges with municipal authorities, water utilities and industrial companies and cut down the load of nutrients and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea. The project is led by the City of Helsinki, Environment Centre, Finland
