Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth and Bioeconomy

Do you work in the field of bioeconomy and are you interested in how to integrate youth perspectives into your everyday work? Are you looking for innovative solutions to foster the necessary transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based society and economy? Are you a member of a youth organisation with a strong engagement in the field of bioeconomy and sustainability?

The Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth and Bioeconomy addresses the need to better integrate younger generations into the field of bioeconomy. Youth (up to 30 years of age) are vital for renewing and innovating the sector, which is necessary in the transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based society/economy. Today, however, there is a lack of necessary links and methods for attracting and involving youth.

In response to this, the Swedish Institute, together with its cooperation partners, is developing a training programme to tackle the challenges of youth participation in the bioeconomy sector.

Main cornerstones of the programme
  • Inclusion and cooperation
  • Peer learning and mentoring
  • Network building

Crosscutting themes
  • Stakeholder involvement and multi-actor participation
  • Complex thinking (sustainability and stakeholder models – setting up interlinkages)
  • Communicating complex ideas

Baltic Sea Campus on eHealth ready for take-off

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) can safely be called a pioneer in the field of eHealth. Numerous study trips to the Scandinavian countries as well as to Estonia are proof for the importance of the region in the field.

At Flensburg University of Applied Sciences (FUAS) we have seen our role as that of an “eHealth bridge” in the BSR in the past and continue to do so. We were the first in Germany to offer a master’s degree programme “eHealth” back in 2007 and we are home to the Management Secretariat of eHealth for Regions, the leading network on the topic. FUAS was the lead partner and thus mainly in charge for several projects within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR). November 2013 saw both the foundation of the Institute for eHealth and Management in Healthcare and its re-location to new facilities FUAS has further increased its efforts and involvement in the BSR ever since.

Baltic Sea Region's State of the Region Report 2014 published

Latest State of the Region Report was published in Turku at the 16th BDF Summit on June 3,2014.

According to the Report there are signs that the Baltic Sea region and its 11 countries are entering a new normal of permanently lower growth, and it is difficult to see where powerful new growth drivers should come from. Furthermore, the political situation in Ukraine could influence negatively.
