We invite you to Berlin for the 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the 19th Baltic Development Forum. Our Programme Director, prof. Kazimierz Musiał will present preliminary results of the study on identifying specific strategic areas that have potential to become areas of scientific excellence on transnational level in the Baltic Sea Region. In this project we cooperate with the Baltic Science Network (BSN), transnational forum for higher education, science, and research cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. BSN is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Equalities in Hamburg. We invite all participating in both events on Tuesday, 13 of June, at 5 p.m. to Konrad-Adenauer-Saal in the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin.
