Routes4U is a joint programme between the Council of Europe and the European Union. The 30-months project (2017-20) aims to foster regional development through the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme in the four EU macro-regions. 

The project has created new publications to support those who work with cultural co-operation, cultural heritage, regional development and tourism: 

1) Transnational Cultural Policies for the Baltic Sea Region

2) Branding for the Baltic Sea Region

3) Economic impact of Cultural Routes in the EU macro-regions  

In addition, the project has created tools to explore and plan trips to make the most of cultural routes:  

The macro-regional trip-planner and tourism catalogue with a specific search function on the Baltic Sea Region is now available as well as an e-learning course focused on Cultural Routes and EUSBSR.
