Baltic Sea Region

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) is one of the leading areas in Europe in respect to economic development and innovation. The region has taken the challenge of the EU Lisbon agenda seriously and already exceeds European standards in many indicators – competitive economies are based on modern technologies and high environmental standards. The Baltic Sea Region is committed to be the role model for Europe in achieving sustainable growth with innovation, mobility and integration as the key components. Baltic Metropoles strive to ensure the region a strong position in the Europe of tomorrow.
The unique dynamism of the region lies in:
  • High growth potential of the new EU member states 
  • Dynamic innovation systems of  the old member states
  • Wide intellectual resources, educated labour force and know-how
  • Numerous modern universities, technical universities and institutions of higher education
  • Huge market potential, in particular of North-Western Russia
