Regional Identity

Regional Identity, one of the three renewed long-term priorities of the CBSS, aims to develop and foster the concept of Baltic Sea Region identity and a sense of belonging to the Baltic Sea Region through engagement, dialogue, people-to-people contacts, macro-regional networks and multilevel governance.

To this end, several activities, programmes and networks are operational within the priority. This includes Balticlab – an initiative aimed at increasing regional future-thinking, innovation and prosperity by encouraging entrepreneurial and creative industry collaborations through mentoring and sponsoring talent. Other initatives include EuroFaculty Pskov, and the CBSS Summer University which report to the Ministers of Culture of the Baltic Sea Region through the CBSS Group of Senior Officials on Culture.
