Baltic Research and Publications Office (BUPRaP)

The Baltic Research and Publications Office (BUPRaP) is a research and publications infra-structure whose aim is to support the Baltic University Programme (BUP) members  to foster their research activities and enhance their publications output and profile.  

fold faq Overview

BUPRaP operates in two main areas:

  • 1. Research: BUPRaP gathers and makes available information on open calls for funding programmes, both from the European Union (e.g. Horizon 2020, ERASMUS+, Europe-AID, INTERREG, etc) and from other grant-awarding bodies such as CBSS, Foundations and other donors. Representatives from the member universities interested  on particular calls may contact the BUPRaP team, and discuss their possible participation.
  • 2. Publishing: BUPRaP coordinates publications on matters related to environment, sustainable development and climate change in referred journals. Preference is given to journals with impact factors, since the participant scientists may use them for the purposes of career development, and when applying for future research grants.

In order to optimise its activities, BUPRaP will set-up and maintain a dedicated members list, so that it can be in close contact with the stakeholders interested on its activities.

fold faq Aims

Launched in March 2018 as a follow-up to the BUP Rectors Conference held in Turku in January 2018, the Baltic Research and Publications Office (BUPRaP) aims to:

  • a) support R&D at BUP members by catalysing their participation in externally-funded research initiatives and projects
  • b) support the publication efforts of BUP members, by coordinating the submission of high quality papers in indexed journals

BUPRaP is a multi-stakeholder scheme and can be used by representatives from universities, but also from persons working at government offices, foundations or NGOs, and who share an interest on research projects and scientific publications.

fold faq How does it work?

BUPRaP works by means of a "pull and push" approach. By means of "push" it will contact its members and inform them about opportunities for research bids and publications, hence opening up an opportunity for their participation. By means of the "pull" approach, staff at member universities may contact the BUPRaP office to inform about their own plans, and have the search for suitable partners be supported by our team. Research teams (for project proposals) and authors´ teams (for scientific papers in journals) will be set-up based on their suitability and skills, and the submission work may be coordinated by the BUPRaP team in Hamburg. Details on specific inputs and of the responsibilities of the different scientists will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

fold faq About the BUPRaP Office

BUPRaP is hosted by the Research and Transfer Centre "Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management" at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany, which is also a BUP Associate Secretariat. The BUPRaP office works in close contact with the BUP team in Uppsala, with the other Associate Secretariats in Turku and Lodz, as well as with BUP National Centres. The office is coordinated by Professor Walter Leal and managed by Ms Nicole Krause.
