Completed projects

Baltic Nest Institute has been involved in various international projects. For each project, you can read more by clicking on the project name.

The eight-year (1999—2006) research programme MARE, funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, MISTRA, was aimed at decision-makers working on Baltic Sea environmental issues. In the programme, a user-friendly decision support system (Baltic Nest) was developed. It demonstrated what could be a cost-effective distribution of the measures needed in order to achieve a desired environmental quality in the Baltic Sea. By changing various parameters in the system, the user can create different scenarios of possible options in different parts of the Baltic Sea region.

When MARE ended in 2006, the Baltic Nest support system, continued to be maintained and developed within the Baltic Nest Institute (BNI), established in Sweden and Denmark. The research alliance was joined by Finland in 2011.
