BSR Stars is a flagship within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. It aims at strengthening competitiveness and economic growth in the Baltic Sea Region by linking strong research environments, clusters and SME networks – creating a number of globally-leading innovation partnerships that address common “grand challenges” in the Baltic Sea Region. As an extension of this the programme also aims at strengthening innovation policy capabilities to work with smart specialisation on a macro-regional level.
BSR Stars seeks to mobilize transnational collaboration on three fronts:
- Facilitating linkages
- Developing collaborative strength
- Strengthening the Policy Framework
