Baltic Urban Lab

An EU co-funded cross-border cooperation project that aims at improving urban planning in the Baltic Sea region. New integrated planning and partnership models for brownfield regeneration are created and tested in practice in Norrköping, Tallinn, Turku and Riga and made available to all cities in the region to help them in revitalization of urban space and support the development of smart, sustainable city districts with high-quality living and working environments.
