What is the “Baltic Conference on Intellectual Cooperation”

The main purpose of these conferences is to promote intellectual and scientific cooperation around the Baltic Sea to better comprehend the issues of common history, culture, economic and political situations and to give impetus for joint efforts in tackling current challenges.

The Conferences on intellectual cooperation sustain a pre-war tradition of bringing together intellectuals from the Baltic Sea region to discuss common issues. The 1st Baltic Congress on Intellectual Cooperation took place in Lithuania in 1935. The tradition of the Intellectual conferences was revived in 1999 by the 7th Baltic Conference on Intellectual Cooperation held in Riga.
