Baltic Science Network
A forum for higher education, science and research cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region

Baltic Science Network (BSN) is a policy network for higher education, science and research cooperation, gathering relevant transnational, national and regional policy actors from the Baltic Sea Region countries.

What is BSN?

Baltic Science Network (BSN) is a springboard for targeted multilateral activities in the frame of research and innovation excellence, mobility of scientists and expanded participation. These joint activities are modelled with an overall aim to ensure that the Baltic Sea Region remains a hub of cutting-edge scientific solutions with the capacity to exploit the region’s full innovation and scientific potential. The activities are modelled as examples of best practice which form basis of the policy recommendations drafted by the Network.

The platform is tailored to provide advice on how to enhance a macro-regional dimension in higher education, science and research cooperation. Recommendations jointly formulated by the Network members address the European, national and regional policy-making levels.

The Baltic Science Network is a flagship of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region under the Policy Area Education, Research and Employability. It is also one of two cornerstones of the Science, Research and Innovation Agenda of the Council of the Baltic Sea States.
