The Baltic University Programme strives to find new ways for cooperation and collaboration between higher education institutions and the surrounding community. It is an innovative network where, ever since 1991, the aim has been to strengthen local and international learning platforms, focusing on partnerships in sustainable development and education for sustainable development.
