The aim of this study is to identify starting points for the development of synergetic transnational science strategies in the Baltic Sea region (BSR).1 Such starting points are coinciding areas of actual or potential scientific excellence, examples of research infrastructure of supra-regional significance and best practice already established in scientific cooperation, and existing research and innovation strategies of international organisations of several BSR countries.
The investigation has proceeded in two steps. First, it has mapped highlights of the science landscape in the BSR, based on an analysis of existing and potential fields of excellent research as well as major instances of transnational science cooperation and infrastructure. Second, it has investigated current research strategies and objectives at various political levels, thereby correlating the findings from the first step of the investigation with chosen paths of science policy in the region. The two steps combine different analytical approaches, namely an empirical examination of the status quo and a policy analysis of national and supranational research and innovation strategies.
