We were at the 9th Annual EUSBSR Forum in Tallinn on 4 – 5 June 2018

Almost all UMBRELLA project partners, including BISER, were taking part in the 9th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Tallin last week. We developed new, promising project ideas and promoted UMBRELLA offer among over 700 participants and stakeholders from all over the Baltic Sea Region.

The Forum was hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia together with the Baltic Development Forum in close cooperation with the European Commission, Ministry of Environment and other partners. About 770 participants from governments, international organisations, NGOs, universities, local and regional administrations and businesses came together to discuss developments and challenges in the Baltic Sea Region. The Annual Forum was co-financed from the programme of Interreg Baltic Sea Region.

The main theme of the 9th Annual Forum was the Baltic Sea Region After 2020. The Forum discussed how to improve the implementation of the EUSBSR in the framework of the future EU Cohesion Policy. It discussed also the current state of the ecosystem in the Baltic Sea as well as how to advance the Region as a global digital hub.


Next year we will meet in Gdańsk, as 10th Anniversary Forum will be hosted in our city!
