The Baltic University Programme (BUP) has for 27 years been active in the drainage area of the Baltic Sea Region - promoting openness, internationalization, mobility and cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. The main aim is to support building strong regional educational and research communities. Since the start BUP has gathered 232 universities in the region, educated some 150 000 students over the years, organized hundreds of conferences, been sailing on the Baltic Sea and beyond some 28 times, worked with governments, companies and some 30 cities in the region, published close to 50 books and 60 hours of film, and last but not least - created friendships between students, researchers and academic teachers in the region. Maybe these efforts are more than any other University Programme world-wide.
