The aim of the Baltic Science Network (BSN) is to provide science and research ministries of the Baltic Sea region states with an overall coordination framework to develop and implement science policy in a macro-regional dimension and to ensure a better representation of macro-regional interest on the EU level.

The BSN project also aims to develop and implement transnational strategies, incentives and programmes to support higher education, research and innovation and to develop R&I excellence.
BSN partnership is closely interlinked with the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and is a flagship of Policy Area Education, Research and Employability.

Science and education ministries are the main project partners. Åbo Akademi University represents universities via the Baltic University Programme (BUP).
