Classroom presentation

Classroom presentation (on 18 April 2019) at the Riga 46th Secondary School during the annual campaign "Back to School 2019" organised by the Representation of the European Commission to Latvia and the Club “House” – Youth for United Europe.

“Back to School” promotes the EU before and after the Europe Day. The EU experts visit schools to introduce pupils to their work.

The EU is a Member of the Council of the Baltic Sea States. Via Interreg BSR Programme, the EU is the main funder of two research cooperation projects endorsed and recently reviewed by the Council of the Baltic Sea States – Baltic Science Network and Baltic TRAM.

The report “Baltic TRAM Smart Specialisation Trends” explains how one project helps to build more environmentally friendly economies by offering EU-based SMEs transnational access to the most appropriate analytical research facility to address specific R&D challenges. Baltic TRAM shows how the EU supports the so-called green or clean economy jobs, researchers with advanced training which might be of great use to the business sector.
