The project develops joint and cooperating business opportunities under the theme of “Smart City”, which is a priority at the EU-level and many regional innovation policies to support cross-sectoral smart innovations. BELT strives to attract entrepreneurship-oriented, already experienced and talented students as well as potential start-ups to the project incubator activities through relevant networks, platforms and university road shows in the partner locations. BELT organizes joint business development BootCamps and coaching for students and start-ups to develop and commercialize their business ideas and to look for additional team members across borders. Additionally, a coaching network will be created to offer business coaching for the established joint teams and best co-operating business ideas from the BootCamps to help them find seed funding for their businesses. The project will result in at least 5 joint and 10 co-operating knowledge intensive enterprises. The project will support 30 new knowledge intensive enterprises in the Central Baltic region.

Higher Education Institutions for Societal Engagement1.9.2016 0:00:0031.8.2019 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningHigher education institutions (HEIs) play a key role in educating young people to understand the underlying values in societies and cultures, which create crucial abilities to foster social integration. To succeed in this, the teachers and students of HEIs need novel ways to increase intercultural understanding and social inclusion. Hence, in the project we aim to create a comprehensive educational model grounded in experiential and challenge based learning to increase the higher education institutions’ societal engagement (HEISE). The HEISE project consists of two main Intellectual Outputs (IO) that have independent but intertwined paths. First, IO 1 concentrates on building a participatory learning model for societal engagement for HEIs through a challenge solving course module with an e-publication for teachers guiding through the methodological approach of the course. Second, IO 2 consists of activities that create a model for HEIs to evaluate their societal impact and the engagement in societal projects. This outcome of the project will help the HEIs to better integrate the societal impact into their strategies. The project is funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme. The HEISE project started 1.9.2016 and it will run until 31.8.2019.Anne Eskelinen, anne.eskelinen@laurea.fi Anne Äyväri, anne.ayvari@laurea.fi CARD Kokonaisvaltainen terveys ja hyvinvointi; CARD Yhteiskunnan eheys ja sosiaalinen vastuullisuusErasmus+ KA2747

ABC Gates for Europehttp://abc4eu.com/1.1.2014 0:00:0031.12.2017 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningPeople travel and migrate. International movement is on the rise and so are the numbers of border crossings each year. In 2011 alone, there were over 700 million Schengen border crossings, and the estimate is that there will be an 80% increase by 2030. Thus, border crossings should be made as smooth and rapid as possible for everyday travelling without compromising security. ABC4EU (Automated Border Control Gates for Europe) is a 4-year, EU Framework Programme 7 (FP7) Project that began in January 2014. At the moment the Automated Border Control Systems can be used by passengers with EU and Schengen ePassport recognizable by the microchip symbol. In the future, together with complementary legislation, also non-Schengen passengers will be able to use the ABC gate. The ABC gate compares the biometric data (e.g. facial image or fingerprints, etc.) from the passenger’s travel document onto the real-life equivalent. It also verifies the validity and reliability of the travel document. If the match is high enough, the passenger is let through from the gate. The aim of ABC4EU is to make border checks more flexible and user-friendly for passengers by harmonising the functionalities of border check automation. Greater harmonisation should create a better passenger experience and encourage people to use ABC gates at border crossing points. ABC gates facilitate more fluent travelling by shortening queuing time. Harmonisation should affect many functionalities, biometrics, gate design and the border check process itself. One of the main objectives of the project is to update and integrate current ABC systems and extend their use to future ePassports. Simultaneously, states can fight cross-border crime and illegal migration more efficiently, and provide a higher level of internal security. The system will also benefit different stakeholders, such as transport operators, as the increasing flow of travellers will be handled in an efficient way.Laura Tarkkanen Project Manager Laurea University of Applied Sciences +358 40 669 2611 laura.tarkkanen@laurea.fi FP7 Cooperation177

EUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspectivewww.eucise.eu1.12.2014 0:00:0031.5.2018 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningEUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective (Combination of Collaborative Project and Coordination and Support Action: Pre-Operational Validation (POV), funded by European Commission FP7 framework programme) EUCISE2020 is a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program; it aims at achieving the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. EUCISE2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for implementation of the European CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment. CISE supports the development of the Blue Economy of the European Union, is a key innovation of the European maritime governance, is an element of the European Digital Agenda, and, finally, is a pillar of the European Action Plan for the European Maritime Security Strategy. The European Union is strongly committed at implementing the Integrated Maritime Policy which supports improved efficiency of the Maritime Situational Awareness by the competent authorities, through networking and interoperability of maritime surveillance systems in Europe (ref. COM (2009) 538, and COM (2010) 584 relating to the implementation of a Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE)). EU CISE 2020 aims to be a significant step forward along the accomplishment of the European roadmap for CISE (Common Information Sharing Environment); the project attains the widest possible experimental environment of innovative and collaborative processes between European maritime institutions. EU CISE 2020 takes as reference a broad spectrum of factors in the field of European Integrated Maritime Surveillance, arising from the European legal framework, as well as from studies, pilot and R&D projects accomplished in the last three years. The overall objective of EUCISE2020 is to progress towards establishing a forward operating vision of CISE more stable and innovative, functionally and geographically larger, and more shared by different communities of European public and private stakeholders; CISE will support further cross-border and cross-sector operational cooperation between public authorities -including EU Agencies- in the execution of the defined maritime functionalities, with a focus on information sharing across sea-basins. The EU CISE2020 Consortium includes: 39 full partners organisations from 14 European Member States or EEA States (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Spain, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, UK), including operational stakeholders, R&D institutions and technical bodies involved in all EU relevant maritime basins and in all CISE sectorial communities. 25 associated / observer partners organisation including international organisations and maritime authorities from other European MS.

The project aims to transform the administration-centred model of designing public digital services into a new kind of open innovation process which enables the participation of citizens, companies, educational institutions and public actors. The project aims to make extensive use of service design methods, which enable different actors to participate together in defining and developing services as well as creating business. In addition, the project endeavours to harness unprocessed information (open data) that has been accumulated by public administration, organisations, companies and private citizens into new service innovations co-created by various actors. Another objective is to create an innovation platform for making use of open data, and tools and business models that facilitate co-creation.Project Manager | sami.kauppinen@laurea.fi | +358 40 036 7567 CARD Palvelumuotoilu ja tulevaisuuden innovatiiviset liiketoimintamallitH2020 Societal Challenges414
