INTERREG cooperation comes to a successful end after three and a half years in January 2021 - Follow-up projects are being planned

The Interreg project CTCC (Creative Traditional Companies Cooperation) focused on the structural strengthening of the SME sector in the Southern Baltic Sea region, in particular through the targeted cooperation and implementation of joint pilot measures with the creative industries as well as the exploitation of the know-how of creative professionals in traditional companies. The importance of the creative industries as an economic sector and innovation driver is expanding steadily and offers enormous growth potential. This was successfully tested on a regional level and applied in more than 30 realized prototypes. As associated project partners, 35 institutions and authorities from the entire Baltic Sea region were on hand to advise the project consortium.

INTERREG South Baltic Programme published information to 2nd Call for Proposals

The second call for proposals under the Interreg South Baltic Programme 2014-2020 will be launched between 9 May and 17 June 2016. The JS is offering individual project consultations.

Baltic.AirCargo.Net − End of the project, Project results, 09.09.2013
Today has been the officially end of the Interreg project Baltic.AirCargo.Net. The German partners High Competence Network e.V. and Scheller Systemtechnik GmbH developed a prototype for a web-based air freight cooperation system during the project framework. This system works as an electronic market place between logistics service providers and manufacturers to find new and efficient ways of transport. Furthermore, the project partners developed a so-called „flying trucks“ concept for the participating regions − a concept of replacement air freight transport between airports. With this concept, air cargo can be moved more efficiently to road transport.

Energy Cluster Initiative „renewable energies and energy efficiency“ has been finished successfully
Along with the Baltic Sea Region Programme Conference in Lilleström, Norway the Final Conference of the cluster initiative was carried out under the leadership of the Technical University Berlin on 20.09.2012. The cluster initiative compiled a policy paper on fundings to prolong the energy cluster after the official finish of the pilot project. The policy paper was presented by representatives of the cluster at the Hanse-Office in Brussels on 27.06.2012. Among others a member of the European Parliament was attending the presentation. The cluster proposed the inclusion of cluster projects and master cluster projects into the next funding period of the Baltic Sea Region Programme. The future cluster projects should contain the implementation of solutions to increase energy efficiency by using renewable energy sources. Moreover a test run for measuring the CO� emissions in one cluster project city is another suggestion. More information as well as the policy paper are available under the following link:
