The main theme of the 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region is "Connectivity".

Connectivity in a broad political sense highlights the necessity to further intensify contacts in the Baltic Sea region and to develop a better awareness of each other’s perspectives and sensitivities. It includes the totality of the Baltic Sea region. It is a prerequisite to enable confidence building with neighboring regions. It also concerns an efficient and comprehensive collaboration between all levels of government. Connectivity is essential for today’s research activities as well as for cultural exchange including tourism. Connectivity has an important infrastructural dimension - be it in the area of transport, energy or communication. It is the basis for modern business, which is network based and outward looking.

The organizing team seeks a balance between the three objectives of the EUSBSR - “Save the sea”, Connect the region” and “Increase prosperity” as well as its horizontal dimensions. Updated information will be provided at the official website of the Annual Forum, once it is established.
