There are several researchers associated with The Baltic University Programme. These researchers work at their home universities, BUP participating universities, but cooperate within one or several networks of the Programme. You find some of them listed under the 10 BUP themes below.
Within each BUP theme we have a theme coordinator and by joining a BUP research network you will receive specific information connected to the BUP theme that you are working within. The researchers that are a part of these networks can get the chance to take part in theme meetings, matchmaking events as well as contribute to the BUP Course Platform.
We invite you to have your research profile information published here. Anyone that is conducting research while being employed at one of our participating universities or at an NGO connected to the BUP is welcome to add their research profile. When you decide to join, send us your information and join a BUP theme by filling out this form. Remember that you at any time can ask us to unpublish your information.
Researchers on Climate Change
Climate change refers to the changes that occur in the worlds climatic systems caused by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases.
Researchers on Energy Systems
Energy transition plays a crucial role in the transition to a zero-emission society. Changing our energy production becomes essential in order to phase out the fossil fuels.
Researchers on Sustainable Societies
A sustainable society focuses on the current and future well-being of its citizens and the environment. The three spheres of sustainability encompass many concepts which explain how decisions and actions can have an impact on the overall sustainability of our world.
Researchers on Sustainable Water Resources
The field of sustainable water resources management has the challenge to adapt to the current and future issues facing the allocation of water. With the growing uncertainties of global climate change and the long-term impacts of management actions, the decision-making will be even more difficult.
Researchers on Urban Rural Development
The last decades of urbanisation globally have led to several trends related to spatial planning today, such as urban growth, densification, uncontrolled sprawl and an on-going discussion about urban-rural interaction.
Researchers on Sustainable Mobility
The functioning of a modern society puts heavy demand on the ability of individuals to be mobile. The sustainable mobility aims at the reduction of adverse effects connected to mobility.
Researchers on Circular Economy
Circular economy refers to an economic system built on circular materials flows, instead of the more conventional economic systems where a product is being produced, used and trashed.
Researchers on Sustainable Tourism
This theme aims at gathering researchers on sustainable tourism from a broad range of fields as well as engage the next generation of tourist research scholars around the Baltic Sea.
Researchers on Education for Sustainable Development
Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a transdisciplinary research field, studying transformative learning within formal, non-formal and informal settings. ESD works with learning processes in relation to all SDGs in Agenda 2030.
Researchers on Sustainable Food Systems
Key challenges of our time are to sustain the management of agricultural land and develop more resilient food systems to feed a growing world population.
