Co2olBricks is flagship project!

Since February 2013, Co2olBricks is one of two flagship projects of the priority area “Culture - Developing and promoting the common culture and cultural identity” and listed in the Action Plan for the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).
The actions of the EUSBSR are implemented by means of flagship projects. Flagship projects demonstrate the progress of the EUSBSR, and may serve as pilot examples for desired action. A flagship project is frequently the result of a policy discussion within a priority area/horizontal action and fleshes out the ambition of a priority area in a specified field of action.
A flagship project may, for example, develop key solutions, new methodologies, practises or new forms of cooperation and may also concern key investments of regional importance. More information in the Action Plan for the EUSBSR here.
