Co-operation in research strengthened

On 1st May 2004 the Baltic states become EU members, but this will not harm the strong relations between the Nordic and Baltic countries. The Nordic and Baltic ministers of research and education agreed to strengthen the co-operation in research and education in a meeting in Copenhagen on 25th March.
The ministers have agreed to formalise the co-operation by a common plan of action, the objective of which is to create a common Nordic-Baltic education area within adult education, schools and research.

The ministers discussed the possibility of further opening the Nordplus programme for Baltic participation. They agreed to strengthen research co-operation through increased Baltic participation in Nordic research programmes and in Nordic research institutions. In order to continue the co-operation a contact group will be established with representatives from the ministries of education and research in all of the countries.
