Being an innovative network by its nature, BUP strives to find novel ways of interaction among universities and between universities and society, to have strong local and international educational communities
The Baltic University Programme (BUP) 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 Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development (Uppsala CSD) at Uppsala University, Sweden.
The Programme focuses on questions of sustainable development, environmental protection, and democracy in the Baltic Sea region. The aim is to support the key role that universities play in a democratic, peaceful and sustainable development. This is achieved by developing university courses, support inter disciplinary research co-operations, and by participation in transdisciplinary projects in cooperation with authorities, municipalities and others.
From 2016 the Baltic University Programme will be a member organisation for universities in the Baltic Sea region. The annual fee of €1000 and entitles the member university to send students and teachers to BUP courses and conferences including the popular SAIL courses. For more information on how to join the network please contact the director of the BUP secretariat.
