Our mission is to help rural areas in the Baltic Sea Region to reach their full potential in bioeconomy. We hope to achieve our mission through building capacity for transnational cooperation in innovation management and smart specialization in bioeconomy. To enable transnational cooperation, we create an open transnational digital platform for innovation in bioeconomy, which will be tested and scaled up via several pilots together with local small and medium sized enterprises.

RDI2CluB unites authorities, research, development and innovation (RDI) institutes and business development bodies from five regions to a joint quest for boosting smart and sustainable bioeconomy development in the rural areas of Baltic Sea Region. The five regions of the RDI2CLuB partnership are:

  • Central Finland/Finland
  • Hedmark/Norway
  • Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship/Poland
  • Vidzeme/Latvia
  • Estonia

RDI2CluB adopted as Flagship of EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region

In November 2017, RDI2CluB was adopted as a Flagship of Policy Area Bioeconomy by the EUSBSR National Coordinators. Flagships demonstrate the progress of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, and serve as pilot examples for desired action in the policy area. According to EU Strategy for Baltic Sea Region, Bioeconomy offers an abundance of opportunities to grow primary industries and opens up new development prospects in the rural areas.

Facebook post by RDI2CluBYoung frontrunners see potential in developing Baltic bioeconomy - Nordic Waynordicway.orgYoung people all around the world are mobilising to take the lead in the battle against climate change. They identify the largest potentials for expanding the bioeconomy in the Baltic Sea Region in agriculture, bioenergy, food and forestry.
'Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth and Bioeconomy' participants, including Santa Niedola from Vidzeme Planning region and Jussi Nissi, a former JAMK student have contributed to the latest 'Sustainable Growth the Nordic Way WEB MAGAZINE - June 2019' with insights to the bioeconomy potential in BSR from youth perspective. The team was also on stage at the #EUSBSR Annual Forum 2019 'Blue and green bioeconomy in the BSR from a youth perspective'. Looking to see the next steps in this process for involving the Youth into the strategy work on bioeconomy development in the Baltic Sea region.

As @RDI2CluB has reached its half-way mark, let's look at the progress so far from picking low-hanging fruits and benchmarking best practices to the massive data gathering tasks and intensive service design process for #Biobord. #bioeconomy #BSR #interreg https://t.co/IIPjfMbW4I

RDI2CluB Advisory Board meeting was held on June 12 in Gdansk in conjunction to the EUSBSR Annual Forum. The Biobord platform design process and the piloting plans were introduced to the Advisory Board members. Recommendations included e.g. wider application of networks, development of specific data-sharing policies and forward looking engagement to the Horizon Europe programme term preparations. Thank you for the practical input, we'll certainly do our best to apply it!

Facebook post by RDI2CluBDefending Rural Bioeconomy against the Dragons | Tech to the Futureblogit.jamk.fiBlogissa kerromme monipuolisesti JAMKin teknologiayksikön TKI-toiminnasta. Aihealueina ovat mm. kyberturvallisuus, ICT, automaatio- ja robotiikka, biotalous, logistiikka, rakennustekniikka ja teollisuus.
RDI2CluB project was invited to 'pitch' in the Interreg BSR Conference ‘Let’s talk achievements’ organized in Lübeck in April 2019 in 10 minutes. I wanted to share my pitch also as a blog to say all the things that did not fit into the 10 minutes. For example, did you know that our Biobord will have -already during the piloting phase- a potential to build more than 10.5 million different types of teams of three people?

🇵🇱 Benchmarking visit to Świętokrzyskie region, Poland, offered many memorable moments with visits to food, forest, waste and energy sector companies and organizations. Our benchmarking team is now processing the lessons learned on potential of forest-based bioeconomy – especially low emission wood construction, and possible co-operation areas across BSR. The team will also provide recommendations for building the triple helix co-operation in bioeconomy innovation system and for development of the bioeconomy innovation hub in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship. Report will be out in August at rdi2clud.eu.

First transnational workshop session of the Poland visit introduced the local pilots from Central Finland, Hedmark, Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship and Vidzeme. Pilots involve application of new technologies as well as design of co-operation models and innovation processes. Transferability as well as co-operation and business potential accross the regions of the Biobord network is assessed throughout the piloting.

The benchmarking visit to Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship, Poland 🇵🇱 started today with a visit to State Forest and a tree nursery. 🌲🌲 The benchmarking team will explore e.g. the potential of forest-based bioeconomy and low-emission wood building business in the region. Recommendations from Finnish, Norwegian, Latvian and Estonian partners coming up by the end of the week! 🇳🇴🇱🇻🇪🇪🇫🇮
