BaltMet Inno in brief

Baltic Metropolises Innovation Strategy Project

BaltMet Inno is a joint innovation project of the major cities in the Baltic Sea Region. It aims at strengthening the role of cities as developers of innovation environments at local, regional, national and international levels.

The project goal is to produce a common innovation policy framework for the Baltic Sea Region and to create transnational metropolis-driven innovation networks. The project explores also new ways to strengthen the link between urban planning, spatial development and innovation policy measures in order to create dynamic environments in the metropolitan areas.

BaltMet Inno activities aim at strengthening innovation capacities of metropolises with focus on the following themes:

The lead partner is the City of Helsinki and the project co-ordinator Culminatum Ltd. The other of the 14 project partners are the cities of Berlin, Copenhagen, Riga, Malmö, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, County Administrative Board of Stockholm, WISTA Management GmbH, Technology Foundation Berlin GmbH, EVU Center for Business Start Up, Growth and Development, and St. Petersburg State University. In addition, the cities of Oslo, Warsaw and Vilnius participate as observers.

BaltMet Inno is the key project of the Baltic Metropoles Network. The mission of the network, set up in 2002, is to promote innovativeness and competitiveness in the Baltic Sea Region by engaging the focal actors in the area – cities, universities and business enterprises – into close co-operation. Focus of the co-operation is on innovation policies, promotion of mobility of top experts and on pooled marketing.

The 2.6 M€ budget of BaltMet Inno is co-financed by the Baltic Sea Region INTERREG III B Neighbourhood Programme. The Project was launched at the beginning of 2005 and completed in the end of 2007.
