The Baltic University Programme (BUP) strives to find novel ways of interaction among universities and between universities and society. The aim is to enhance strong local and international educational communities. Thus BUP is an innovative network by its nature.

The BUP is a network of universities and other institutes of higher learning in the Baltic Sea region coordinated by the Baltic University Programme Coordinating Secretariat at Uppsala University, Sweden.

The BUP 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. This is achieved by developing university courses, support interdisciplinary research cooperations, and by participation in transdisciplinary projects in cooperation with authorities, municipalities and others.

From 2016 the Baltic University Programme is a member organisation for universities in the Baltic Sea region. The annual fee of €1000 entitles the member university to send students and teachers to BUP courses and conferences.

If your university wants to join the BUP please follow the instructions on How to Become a BUP Member University. If you have any questions please contact Project coordinator Lyudmyla Babak.
