Baltic Leadership Programme on Smart Specialisation

Over the last few years Smart Specialisation has become a key instrument for place-based development. It now represents the most comprehensive policy experience on innovation-driven development in Europe.
For this reason, the Swedish Institute together with its collaboration partners has developed a Baltic Leadership Programme on Smart Specialisation (BLP S3).
BLP S3 addresses the needs and challenges of S3-stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region when developing and implementing their work on S3.

Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth & Bioeconomy

Swedish Institute together with cooperation partners is developing a training programme with the intent to tackle the challenges of youth participation in the Bioeconomy sector.

BLP Youth 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, but today necessary links and methods for attracting and involving youth are lacking.
