The BUP weekly


Dear BUP friends,


We hope that you have good start of 2020 and that you are as eager as we are for a new year of BUP activities.


New year – New communications strategy


In order to make both our and your news more visible and easier to access, we will start sending out the BUP weekly, a short summary of upcoming events and news about research. The BUP weekly will be sent out 2 times per month and will include three parts

  1. BUP news, with activities and calls organized by BUP
  2. Network news, with activities and calls from our member universities and partners.
  3. Call for papers, a list of open calls from BUPRaP or other publication opportunities relevant for the region and the BUP themes.

If you want to share something with the BUP network, it will be included in these mails. The BUP newsletter, will still come out 4 times per year, but will be focusing on more in depth news and reports from past BUP events. 

In this way, we hope that we can make the information more accesible and reduce the amount of emails sent out on our list.

We hope you will enjoy it!

With best regards,

The Baltic University Programme’s coordinating secretariat
