We are pleased to share with you the strategy guide, 2016 – 2020, which aims to put the EUSBSR Action Plan into practice within the policy area of innovation.
As defined by the Action Plan of the EUSBSR, policy area Innovation is essentially about intelligently combining the regional strengths, competences, research and development (R&D) and players of the entire Baltic Sea Region. The aim of this strategy guide is to provide policymakers and innovation actors with guidance and inspiration for how to best utilize the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region so as to effectively achieve EU and joint national goals.
This multi-annual strategy guide was developed over the course of a year by a task force consisting of the Baltic Development Forum (BDF), Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia, the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (DASTI), Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland and the Nordic Council of Ministers. It was done in close dialogue with all the member states throughout the Baltic Sea Region.
