BUP – Baltic University Programme
The Baltic University Programme (BUP) is a network of about 225 universities and other institutes of higher learning in the 14 countries in the Baltic. The network is coordinated by the Baltic University Programme Secretariat, a part of Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development (CSD Uppsala) at Uppsala University, Sweden.
The Programme focuses on questions of sustainable development, environmental protection, and democracy in the Baltic Sea region. The aim is to support the key role that universities play in a democratic, peaceful and sustainable development. This is achieved by developing university courses, and by participation in projects in cooperation with authorities, municipalities and others.
BUP plans, produces and coordinates undergraduate and master level courses using modern educational technologies in combination with traditional university educational settings, and runs joint research projects. The chosen subjects are of common concern for the entire region, and the international cooperation is of key importance. The activities concentrate on different aspects of sustainable development in the region. At present almost 10,000 students participates each year.HAW Hamburg and the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz are the national coordinating offices of the BUP network in Germany.
