Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Title:
eHealth in education in the Baltic Sea Area
Date:
May 2011
URL:
Description:
The aim of this baseline study is to explain the extent, level, and content of eHealth in the existing formal educational systems in Lithuania, Germany, Finland, Norway and Denmark in order to identify future educational needs within this area. The study has revealed a wide range of programmes and courses in the five countries which included eHealth elements. And, apart from Lithuania, all countries also report on programmes in pure eHealth. Moreover, there are in all countries relatively many programmes with a high emphasis on the technical and engineering part of eHealth. But especially in the education of health care professionals (physicians, nurses etc.) it was found that the integration of eHealth elements is often marginal or not existent.

Eight essays on forest governance on landscape scale
Date:
Jun 2014

Description:
In many European countries the implementation forest and environmental policies rest more on information and voluntary agreements and less on economic incentives and regulations. At the same time our forests are expected to deliver not only increasing volumes of timber but also other products and environmental services.

In this anthology, a broad range of “burning issues” related to forest governance on a landscape scale are examined and discussed.
