BUP Research Notes & Themes

BUP research notesI want to make you alert that in November we will launch the new BUP webpage, and some new efforts to facilitate research cooperation among BUP colleagues, as a follow up on the work with the BUP Strategy 2017-2020. The new initiative has two parts: BUP Research Notes and BUP Themes.

The aim with the Research Notes is to spread research findings and knowledge on researchers and research groups in the Baltic Sea region via the BUP web site. The information will also be published on a regular basis in a Research Notes Letter to be spread to Member universities, participating universities and other stakeholders in society. We welcome scientific articles, book chapters, proceedings, dissertations published from 2015 regarding the following Themes: Climate, Energy, Food, Urban-Rural development, Green infra-structure, Transport, and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). For this to happen we All need to contribute, you may already now tell us about your research. Request: Researchers, please send your contribution using the Research Notes Form. And please encourage your colleagues to do the same.


Reminder: BUP 5th PhD Students Training

Baltic University Programme 5th PhD Students TrainingBaltic University Programme
5th PhD Students Training
27 November - 1 December 2017
Rogow, Poland

Deadline for applications: 20 October 2017

The objective is to give PhD students from the BUP network’s countries the possibility to meet and discuss scientific problems with focus on sustainable development in an interdisciplinary, international, multicultural, and regional context. In this way, students will also get the opportunity to become acquainted with other universities and their scientific traditions. The training program will be based on an interdisciplinary approach.

This international training program will enrich the students’ own perspectives on sustainable development with experiences and perspectives from other countries. At the same time it will serve as a platform for the development of a common understanding of the regional problematique and open avenues for future cooperation on these issues. Interdisciplinary training at the PhD-level is essential for creating an understanding between scientists and researchers with different backgrounds (Western and Eastern European cultures), and for their future collaboration for a sustainable future.

Academics at Sea - SAIL for Teachers 2017

June 10th, 2017, Cascias, Portugal.
Two people from the north of Sweden (Umeå) get off the train and start searching for the harbour where the STS Fryderyk Chopin is at anchor. Before the night enters with its dark sky, they will, together with about thirty other academics, start a one-week sailing across the Bay of Biscay with the destination Brest, France. What an adventure!
