SI Baltic Sea Sessions – sharing results, shaping the region

Welcome to join the launch of the SI Baltic Sea Sessions – sharing results, shaping the region. The SI Baltic Sea Sessions is a new digital initiative in which we explore results and lessons learnt through projects funded by the Swedish Institute in the Baltic Sea region. We also explore how the collaborations can be expanded and used as a basis for further funding and ultimately future solutions in the region.

We plan to arrange four sessions yearly on various topics linked to the development of the Baltic Sea region. Each session deals with a specific topic and showcases projects and initiatives that have contributed to progress and sustainability of the region. Projects or activities that are presented can involve all SI’s 15 programme countries. During each session we will also open up for reflections, dialogue and hopefully future connections.

At the launch 8 November we will present the initiative SI Baltic Sea Sessions and give a brief overview of the support provided by SI.

We will also show examples of successful cooperation built on support from the Swedish Institute which resulted in further EU funding and long-term collaborations.

You will get a sneak peek at our upcoming call of the funding scheme “Seed funding for cooperation projects in the Baltic Sea region” which could be used to prepare new collaborations aimed at solving the challenges of the region.

When: 8 November 2021, 13:00 – 14:30 (CET)
Where: The session will be held in Zoom in English.

Register via this form no later than noon 8 November.
A link to the session will be sent with the confirmed registration.
