LogOn Baltic aimed at improving regional development and spatial integration in different types of regions (e.g. capital regions, semi-rural regions around so-called secondary cities) by transferring knowledge in ICT and logistics competence. The main objective was to produce and disseminate information for regional development agencies on how to support enterprises in the participating regions in their effort to improve ICT and logistics competence, thus improving regional development. The project was approved in the INTERREG III B Programme.

LogOn Baltic identified development agencies, evaluate their performance in selected Baltic Sea regions and evaluated the level of logistics and ICT efficiency (among users) within the participating regions. The project also made some suggestions for concrete actions for regional and local public sector bodies to enable the spreading of the competence and exploitation of it in spatial planning. LogOn Baltic found measures and made suggestions for extension projects to enhance the circumstances for the development of SMEs in the regions.
The project consisted of 4 work packages:
- WP 1 the context of regional development in view of ICT and logistics concentrated on the connection of ICT and logistics to the regional development in the public sector;
- WP 2 ICT and logistics competence in the participating regions, examined the ICT and logistics know-how among logistics users and providers, and what these firms’ expectations from the public sector are;
- WP 3 advancing regional development through ICT and logistics competence, processed the results from WP1 and WP2 with key stakeholders;
- WP 4 comprised the dissemination of LogOn Baltic, and runs throughout the project period.
