Call for applications to the BUP Master Thesis Training


The Master Thesis Training is an opportunity for master students to get supervision from an expert from a BUP participating university. This training offers an interdisciplinary learning experience, with sustainability as a shared concept.

The BUP will admit master students from different disciplines, universities and nationalities. The students should be working with their master thesis during the spring semester of 2023. The content of the master thesis should be related to sustainability in a Baltic Sea Region context.

The training will provide an opportunity to get feedback from other students in the region, build connections with other students, and become better acquainted with other academic perspectives in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment. 

The training will take place 27-30 March 2023 in Uppsala, Sweden.

Goals of the training

The objective is to give master students from the BUP member countries the possibility to meet and discuss scientific problems with a focus on sustainability 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 will enrich the students’ perspectives on sustainability with experiences and perspectives from other disciplines and other countries. The training will thus serve as a platform for a common understanding of regional challenges and possibilities and open avenues for future cooperation on these issues.


Only students who are currently writing their master thesis related to sustainability in a Baltic Sea Region context and is enrolled at one of the BUP participating universities will be accepted. A list of current BUP participating universities on the BUP website.

The thesis topic should be related to at least one of the 10 BUP themes.​
