For three years (2017-2020) the Baltic Sea Underground Innovation Network (BSUIN) project developed a service offering to make underground laboratories (ULs) more accessible for science and innovation through methodological geophysical, structural, organizational, and natural background radiation (NBR) characterization. This work is being continued by the newly formed European Underground Laboratories Association through the Interreg Baltic Sea Region program funded project – Empowering Underground Laboratories Network Usage (EUL).
EUL’s focus is on testing, validating, and enhancing the previously created BSUIN practices, tools, and approaches. Emphasis is placed on identifying global users and the effectiveness of marketing and customer relations management all the way from the first contact to the launch of a new business or project. EUL comprises of 6 underground laboratories and 13 partner organizations.
EUL is funded by Interreg Baltic Sea funding cooperation. Project duration is 12 months from January 2021 until December 2021. The total budget is 791,200 €. Project is lead by University of Oulu, Kerttu Saalasti Institute.
