The European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) and its Policy Areas are brought to life through local stakeholder engagement and transnational exchange. On the occasion of the EUSBSR Annual Forum in Finland, the Policy Area Coordinators of PA Education therefore cordially invite representatives of Finnish institutions and organizations working in the fields of education, science, access to the labour market, social affairs and integration of migrants to get to know the EUSBSR and the Policy Area Education in particular.
