Kaliningrad Wastewater Treatment Plant finally in operation

The long-awaited wastewater treatment plant in Kaliningrad started operations on 18 December 2015 at about half of its capacity. By April 2016, the plant has reached almost full capacity processing biologically over 100,000 cubic meters of wastewater per day. The construction of the plant’s sand-filter and UV disinfection units will be finalized during the nearest weeks, and the handling and disposal of wastewater sludge will be solved during the next few months.

Larger challenges can only be solved across industries and fields

ND Forum exploring the potential in the Arctic

The seventh Northern Dimension Forum focused on discussing the challenges and business opportunities in the Arctic region. The need for international cooperation and sustainable development in the Arctic was highlighted throughout the discussions. The ND Forum – organized by the Northern Dimension Business Council (NDBC) and the Association of European Businesses (AEB) – was held on 7 April 2016 in St. Petersburg with over 200 delegates attending the event.

ND needs practical cooperation and discourse

The mission of the Northern Dimension is to bring together partners in the Northern European area to achieve common practical goals in a number of areas important to us all. Academic cooperation has been a part of the Northern Dimension framework since 2009 when the Northern Dimension Institute (NDI) was set up. This autumn marks major new steps to reinvigorate the work of the NDI.
