Since the Baltic Sea Region re-established itself 20 years ago, regional cooperation has been driven by high political and economic ambitions. The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region was introduced in 2009 to address key challenges and untapped potential of this large region, covering about one third of the total area of the EU. To ensure that the Strategy succeeds in taking cooperation in the Region to higher level, new ambitions and targets now need to be discussed.

The place and time for this deliberation is Gdansk, the 24-26 Octobe r 2011, during the 13th Baltic Development Forum Summit and the European Commission´s 2nd Annual Forum on the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, also co-organised by the Polish EU-Presidency, Pomorskie Region and the City of Gdansk.

The new regional ambitions will also play into Europe´s wider ambitions for 2020 under the headline of Sustainable, Smart and Inclusive Growth. Stakeholders are invited to take an active part in the discussions that will provide input to the Polish EU-Presidency and to wider reflections on the future development of the Region. Growth strategies need close partnerships with the private sector.

Up to date, some 800+ participants will attend the conference, and this event provides all BONUS+ projects with an excellent platform to present their key results to the wider stakeholder audiences.

This is also an excellent opportunity to find out more about the ways BONUS supports strongly the implementation of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Regio over the course of the conference sessions.
