Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and concerns regarding the situation later this year, the organisers decided to produce the Annual Forum virtually. The Virtual Annual Forum will take place online on 20 October 2020.

This year the Networking Village will be available online.  

Virtual Networking Village will host more than 20 virtual stands presenting PAC’s work as well as organisations from the BSR. Participants can access the Virtual networking Village in their browser or via mobile application launched later. The list of stands shows what is available and participants can visit the ones they are interested. Materials include for example videos and documents. Participants can also interact via chat or video call with the virtual stand holder. Networking village materials will be available a little time after the Forum, therefore participants are not rushed to visit all stands during the event. Chat and video calls however are only available during the event on 20 October 2020. Programme will have two networking breaks.

The Virtual Networking Village presents an excellent opportunity to get a better overview of all the work that is been carried out within the framework of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, EUSBSR. Participants can browse different rooms, find information and engage in conversations and video calls with exhibitors. Virtual Networking Village will use modern tools to create possibilities to network and find information online.

If you have an idea for transnational cooperation, the Virtual Networking Village is the place where you can discuss if and how the idea can be fitted into the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.

Within each Policy Area, collaborative processes, so-called flagships, are in progress. In flagships participants from different levels of governance, local, regional and national, from the private, public and civil sectors, cooperate and co-create solutions to mutual societal challenges or make better use of opportunities with colleagues in the Baltic Sea region. Exhibitors will be coordinators of the Policy Areas and horizontal actions of the EUSBSR as well as other stakeholders.

Thank you for your patience while we finalise the Virtual Event programme and practicalities – stay tuned, further details will follow.
