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.

Creating value propositions and service offering for the underground labs and their network: Part 2: Creation and reflection
By Aro Päivi, Ahola Helena In the Baltic Sea region the underground labs have been used mostly for scientific research purposes, e.g. physics. Now the same infrastructure, facilities and the underground related expertise will be used for also business purposes, e.g. SMEs’ innovation work. Oulu University of Applied Sciences’ contribution in the project has been in […]
The Callio Lab is one of the six underground laboratories participating in the BSUIN project. The natural background radiation (NBR) measurements were performed in Callio Lab (located in the Pyhäsalmi Mine (Finland)) in July 2018 by a group from the University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland. The NBR measurement carried out at a depth of 1436 […]
