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.
Around 100 universities and other higher education institutions in the Baltic Sea region are now members of the network, which is coordinated from Uppsala University. Its purpose is to support them in their key role in sustainable development. The network organises scientific symposiums, networks for researchers and supervisors, cooperation with scientific journals, course development, and conferences for teachers, doctoral students and students, as well as projects. All the academic activities build upon cooperation in intercultural, interdisciplinary teams, with the aim of learning from each other and developing together.
CBEES has been responsible for the network’s national centre in Sweden since 2018. Our function is to coordinate members, and to manage contacts with teachers, researchers and students. The Swedish members of the network are::
