Aim of the Symposium


The Baltic University Programme main aim is to support building strong regional educational and research communities. Our hope is that our Programme will lead to more visibility and cooperation among researchers, teachers and students. We also hope to foster a greater awareness on sustainable development issues as well as facilitate exchange and mobility. In turn, we believe that this will lead to more common projects and more success in funding and publications. Thus, the goals with BUPSYMPOSIUM2020 are as follows:

  • to provide an opportunity to meet colleagues
  • to provide an opportunity to disseminate and take part of new knowledge
  • to provide an arena where to discuss research
  • to provide an opportunity to get published and spread research in the BUP network

Via inputs and discussions among colleagues, initiatives such as the BUPSYMPOSIUM2020 are realized. We hope You are able to join and take part in the BUP symposium.

The BUP Research Forum, as a part of the symposium, is an inter-disciplinary forum with an emphasis on research relevant to the Baltic Sea Region in the context of Sustainable Development with focus on nine different Themes: Climate Change and Renewable Energy, Sustainable Societies, Sustainable Food Systems, Sustainable Water Resources, Urban-Rural Development, Sustainable Mobility, Circular Economy, Sustainable Tourism and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

We are challenging researchers from different disciplines with an interest in the Baltic Sea Region as an empirical field to discuss Sustainable Development in the Baltic Sea Region. We especially welcome presentations of research having an inter-/multi disciplinary approach.

We are excited to receive Your submission of abstract.

We are excited to meet you in Visby!
