For the third year running the Council of the Baltic Sea States and the Swedish Institute bring young creative minds from the Baltic Sea region together into one space to explore new perspectives and sources of inspiration in the region.

By providing opportunities for interdisciplinary talented individuals to network and come up with joint collaborations in the region, we aim to support their personal development, as well as see an increased engagement in prototyping the future of our region.

Balticlab 3.0 will kick off with a networking weekend in Stockholm on 12-14 December 2014 and similar to previous years will continue with a project-development programme titled Balticlab Ideation with a smaller selected group from the Balticlab Networking Weekend.

The goal is to make the Balticlab Network grow and develop year by year. Hence the programme is open to more countries this year: Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus and Poland, with the call targeted to Baltic Sea talent who have not previously partaken in Balticlab. All the travel and programme costs are covered by the organisers, the Swedish Institute and the Council of the Baltic Sea States.

The deadline for applications is 2 November.
