Welcome to BalticStudyNet II
Promoting Baltic Sea Region Higher Education worldwide

BalticStudyNet - Promoting Baltic Sea Region Higher Education worldwide has been a project under the European Commission's Erasmus Mundus programme. It has been conducted by a consortium of eight partner universities all around the Baltic Sea and has run from December 15, 2006 until December 14, 2009.

BalticStudyNet's aim has been to globally promote the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) as an area of top-quality, innovative higher education. The focus has been on study and research opportunities regarding political, historical, economic and cultural perspectives on the BSR. Target regions have been North America, Russia including the Caucasus and Central Asia, Australia, China and India.

The central activity has been a comprehensive promotion campaign featuring the BSR and its higher education structures. It included (a) a travelling exhibition and (b) innovative "Lecture and Promotion Tours" to higher education and related institutions in third countries to impart knowledge about the BSR and its higher education structures. (c) Workshops for multipliers from third-country higher education institutions introducing them to the BSR and its higher education sector have been held and (d) a textbook containing basic knowledge about the BSR and other marketing material have been produced.

By learning about possibilities of study and research in the BSR, students, scholars and higher education institutions from third countries benefit for their academic work. Through the worldwide marketing of BSR study and research possibilities, higher education institutions in the Baltic Sea Region benefit from a growing influx of international students and researchers.
