Dear BUP friends,

 

The spring is imminent, although the northern parts of our region still is covered in thick layer of snow and ice. Although the spring might seem far, our spring events are not! The applications to BUP's student conference, the student delegation to the Annual Forum, Mobility grant and PhD award are still open, so spread the word among students and young researchers.

 

This week, we can also inform about some upcoming summer schools and as always, the latest call for papers. All found below. Enjoy!

 

With best early-spring-wishes,

The Baltic University Programme’s coordinating secretariat
