Baltic University Programme
The Baltic University Programme (BUP) was officially accepted as the sixteenth Strategic Partner of the CBSS. The programme is a network of about 225 universities and other institutes of higher learning throughout the Baltic Sea region. The network is coordinated by the Baltic University Programme Secretariat a part of the Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development (Uppsala CSD) at Uppsala University, Sweden. Since the 10th Ministerial Session of the CBSS in 2001, the Council had intensified it\’s efforts to coordinate CBSS activities with other organisations actively working to advance regional cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. The CBSS has taken the initiative to organise annual coordination meetings, (organised and presided over by the CSO Chair), with the participation of Baltic Sea regional organisations, thus providing a more structured channel for involving the strategic partners to voice their concerns and coordinate their efforts with the CBSS and other organisations.
