The Idea of organizing the conference was inspired by NATO initiative „Digital Ocean”:
Baltic Sea is becoming internal NATO Sea with Finland as a new NATO member and Sweden membership in NATO is in progress.
This new geopolitical situation along with Russia’s ongoing aggression against Ukraine brings a lot of questions and issues for all of the NATO allies to discuss.
Captured by the aforementioned NATO initiative: Digital Ocean, we decided on instilling the idea on a smaller scale: among the Baltic Sea Region countries, with NATO and EU Agencies participation.
Strengthening the current and future cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region is the main aim of the conference.
The Meeting and the discussions will be organized in three separate and yet interpenetrating panels.
Within each of the panels, we would like to make sure that the topics are discussed from the strategic, military, scientific and industrial perspective, in line with the principle that these experts should always cooperate with one another, understanding each other’s needs and possibilities. As Theodore von Kármán put it: „ Scientific results cannot be used efficiently by soldiers who have no understanding of them, and scientists cannot produce results useful for warfare without an understanding of the operations”.
We believe that taking part in this event would be interesting from Baltic Sea Region perspective. The details are still to be determined, but already at this stage, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that such an event is being organized and we would like to make it an cyclical event.
