Projects of the Baltic Sea Academy
The Baltic Sea Academy is implementing numerous projects as a Lead Partner. Some projects have a strategic, political approach, others concentrate on very specific sectors; some projects have only 9 partners, others partnerships of more than 20 organisations – but all projects always focus to produce tangible results for the benefit of small and medium-sized enterprises. The clear focus lies on R&D, education and environmental projects.

Innovative Entrepreneurs and Innovation Support for SMEs: Knowledge Alliance “Human Resources and Organizational Development”
Together with chambers, universities and SMEs, this project aims to build a strong alliance in the field of human resources and workplace innovations. Through intense cooperation, trainings that impart skills and abilities in the area of workplace innovations are developed and tested, R&D tasks in companies are carried out and a dual bachelor study course is designed.
The project is part of the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 and is running from November 2018 – October 2021 with 11 partners from Finland, Germany, Latvia, and Poland.
SMEs are mostly owner-managed, often for years. The companies risk to loose knowledge and jobs, once that owner retires. This is happening at increasing speed in the BSR,where more and more owners retire without having transferred the business to the next generation.
The aims of the project are to examine, further develop and design innovative and transferable models and tools for facilitating SME business transfers, make them widely available and implement them in companies.
The project develops dual bachelor study courses that combine two degrees: the academic bachelor’s and the vocational master’s (Meister) degree. It is carried out in the Erasmus+ program from September 2017 – August 2020.
The Erasmus+ project pursues the ambitious objectives of further developing future vocational training systems, improving qualifications, enhancing the attractiveness of vocational education and training, and reducing the growing deficits of qualified skilled workers. The project ICC4VET is carried out with 7 partners from Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia between September 2017 – August 2020.
