Maritime networks to be signed accompanied by sails


2014-08-20

It is with a beautiful ship that the Swedish component Generation Balt project will take the next steps in its efforts to develop a sustainable Baltic Sea network for Blue Growth and for optimised education in the maritime sector.

The founders of Generation Balt are partnering with different stakeholders in the Baltic Sea region with the goal of setting up a sustainable network of educational institutions, business communities, public authorities and organisations to continuously promote ongoing exchange of knowledge, competence and labour opportunities.

In the five countries involved in the Generation Balt project, various clusters within the maritime sector agreed to sign a Letter of Intent, facilitating knowledge exchange and the building of partnerships between business and academia. In Sweden this process will be celebrated with the visit to Kalmar of Briggen Tre Kronor, a beautiful sailing ship representing waterborne transport means of the 19th century. Business and government representatives have been invited to a conference dinner on board the ship, where they will also be asked to sign their respective Letters of Intent with Linnaeus University. Briggen's three day visit to Kalmar will also highlight Linnaeus University's research in the Baltic Sea to the public.
