The New Web Site
The News section is divided in two. One for news from the BUP Coordinating Secretariat, and one for news items from the BUP network. The Education section contains a short description of how BUP courses are produced and organised. Here you may submit and publish information on BUP courses at your university. The Research section contains, to begin with, short information articles about ongoing sustainability research in the BUP network by the researchers themselves. Researchers in the network are encouraged to submit information on their research. Another feature is the supporting web site called the BUP Resources. It is divided in a public and an internal part. The public part contains all printed materials published by the BUP in the pdf-format. The internal part contains internal BUP documents. Access to the internal part of the site is restricted.

The Baltic University Programme (BUP) is a network of about 230 universities and other institutes of higher learning in the countries in the Baltic Sea region.

The Programme focuses on questions of sustainable development, environmental protection, and democracy in the Baltic Sea region. The aim is to support the key role that universities play in a democratic, peaceful and sustainable development.
