What is the Hub?

The Baltic Smart Water Hub is an online platform hosted by the UBC Sustainable Cities Commission. The Hub serves as a meeting point for our member cities, water companies and experts from national knowledge based communities in the Baltic Sea Region, aiming to take lifelong learning in the water sector on the macro-regional level and enable transnational dialogue and exchange.

The content published on the Hub is distributed along the following areas of the water management: FRESH WATER (including river-basin and lake cooperation), STORM WATER, WASTE WATER (including sludge handling) and SEA WATER (including coastal areas management and shipping). Additionally, Hub catalogs and references other water-related resources: networks for sharing knowledge in the region, as well as relevant funding sources and legislation.

The Baltic Smart Water Hub addresses varied target groups, including water companies and water associations, relevant departments of local authorities, academia and students engaged in water fields, private companies producing clean-tech and innovative water-related solutions, as well as NGOs and other initiatives and foundations working with water issues.

The Baltic Smart Water Hub was developed in the framework of the project IWAMA – Interactive Water Management. IWAMA project aims at improving wastewater management in the Baltic Sea Region. The project developed the capacity of the wastewater treatment operators and implemented pilot investments to increase the energy efficiency and advance the sludge handling. The project is funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014–2020.
