UBC Task Force’s report on Strategy implementation has come out

The key goal of the Kristiansand UBC Strategy for years 2009–2015 and its implementation was to ensure that UBC, as the leading city network in the Baltic Sea Region, meets the new requirements in the emerging cooperative structure of the Baltic Sea Region, with the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) emerging as the key framework for cooperation.

UBC wanted to ensure its relevance and operative capacity and continue to create added value for its member Cities.
