Empowering Underground Laboratories Network Usage
Interreg Baltic Sea Region co-funded project Empowering Underground Laboratories network usage (EUL) continues the work done during the Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project.
Underground laboratories in the Baltic Sea region are not utilized to their full potential even though world-leading research organizations and industrial companies are nearby. In order to use the available underground space better, the BSUIN project has developed service concepts for the underground laboratories and an open-access platform that characterizes them. These concepts and the platform will be further tested, evaluated, and improved within the EUL project. Better information about the laboratories and their business opportunities is provided to regional development agencies and potential new customers from academia and business.
The duration of the project is the year 2021. There are 13 partners in the project consortium.
Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project has had a promising start. -Characterization of the underground facilities is going on. We want to collect similar kind of information from all the underground facilities and the usage of them. This means quite a lot of interviews and data survey. We have planned a schedule for benchmarking […]
Laboratories located underground are characterised by specific geophysical, geothermal, and geological conditions, which are much different to overground laboratories. For instance, the low natural background radiation enables to create an isolated environment suitable for e.g. nuclear industry and applied scientific research. The potential of underground laboratories from the Baltic Sea region, which are often transformed […]
The Steering Committee of Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project had its first meeting in Oulu, Finland. Commitment to the joint target is very good. -We were pleased to have almost all the 14 members of the Steering Committee present in Oulu or on line, says the chairman of the committee, director Ville Isoherranen […]
