More information about the project
The project increases cross-border knowledge and strengthens the east-west stretch.
E12Atlantica BA3NET is a research project with three research groups from three universities in the Botnia-Atlantica region’s three countries: Umeå University (Sweden), University of Vaasa (Finland), and Nord University (Norway).
The research groups work in close cooperation with national transport agencies and other Nordic-level actors. The project also collaborates closely with the E12 Atlantica Transport project, which involves the Botnia-Atlantica region’s regional and municipal officials as well as consultants.
The project aims to support the region’s readiness to reduce barriers, develop its innovative and competitive capacity, and achieve sustainable regional growth. The goal is to create reports, internationally published articles, seminars, and conferences where knowledge is generated and disseminated.
In the long term, the project’s objective is to strengthen the E12 east-west stretch by improved and sustainable east-west transport links and greater exchange between the countries.
