The Baltic University Programme
The Baltic University Programme is one of the largest university cooperations in the world, with 95 participating universities in the Baltic Sea Region, cooperating for education and research in Sustainable Development and Democracy.
The Baltic University Programme (BUP) strives to find novel ways of interaction among universities and between universities and society. The main aim is to enhance strong regional educational and research communities, but also to foster a greater awareness on our focus areas. The BUP focuses on questions of sustainable development, environmental protection, and democracy in the Baltic Sea region. It supports the key role that universities play in a democratic, peaceful and sustainable development.
This aim is achieved by being an open and inclusive organization, developing and offering university courses, conferences, support multi- and interdisciplinary research co-operations, and by participating in transdisciplinary projects in cooperation with authorities, municipalities and others. The BUP offers research themes intended as a source of information where BUP colleagues both collect and submit material. Our hope is that this will lead to more visibility and co-operation among researchers, teachers and students.
