NewsWave is a regional daily news website, which aims to improve information exchange and cross-border communication in the Baltic Sea macro-region and promote a more distinct regional identity or we-feeling. The NewsWave project will engage local young news spotters in delivering stories for the website. All news will be redistributed to a network of receivers in all the countries (newspapers, news exchange bureaus and magazines). A network of bloggers from all countries will be attached to the website. NewsWave intends to fill the information gap in the area and address the urge for more communication in the EUSBSR plan. The target group will be citizens, businesses, policy makers, experts and the creative community of the region. The website will be in English, politically neutral, interactive, open minded and using the best tradition of public service journalism. A professional media board will be established. The NewsWave is piloted as part of the ONE BSR project. If successful, it shall be extended and further developed in a follow-up project. Achievements: Newswave.eu is a Copenhagen based news website publishing a daily selection of articles chosen from monitoring regional and EU news titles. Newswave.eu is also a platform for featuring opinions, blogs and debates of the Baltic Sea Region. Newswave.eu was launched 26 February 2013 by Baltic Development Forum (BDF) who is editor-in-chief of the website.
