The project Live Baltic Campus aims at developing campuses as innovation hubs by creating better urban environment for businesses and residents and thus contributing to new job creation in the local economy. The idea is to create a working method for participative urban planning which is adopted by cities as part of their normal work.
In practice, the project brings together city planners, government representatives, campus developers and stakeholders to utilize the campuses as labs with an aim to develop plans for better integrated urban management of the Central Baltic region. The project creates a network of practitioners ensuring knowledge transfer between the northern and southern parts of the Central Baltic region. Pilot implementations conducted in each area explore participative urban planning in its different phases, from preceding the official planning, to activities supplementing the official planning and following the official process.
As the main result, project creates integrated campus development plans, as well as service concepts and implementation plans for each partner region via pilot cases co-developed with the city government and stakeholders. In addition, the project creates a platform for discussing policy objectives, exchanging best practices and improving the quality of life indicators. By creating better urban environment for businesses and residents, the project creates new jobs and has positive impacts on the local economy.

In addition project creates a platform for discussing policy objectives, exchanging best practices and improving the quality of life indicators. By connecting municipal administrators, professionals, academics, and active citizens, the project creates a network of practitioners, which can take a life of its own after the project conclusion.
While its direct beneficiaries are the universities and cities where pilot projects take place, the project serves as an example of participative, collaborative planning, which can be adopted in other urban development situations. Working relationships between city administrators, universities, design professionals and the society are created and strengthened both locally and at CB level. Online solutions for these collaborations and joint development efforts are explored and tested. Result indicator: integrated campus development plans developed in each partner city.
