As part of the work towards cleaner Baltic Sea policy area Nutri promotes Flagship projects with specific goals corresponding to policy area Nutri actions supporting the reduction of nutrient loads to the sea. These projects have a macro-regional impact and start from joint initiatives involving partnership from different Baltic Sea region countries.
