On 28-29 January 2013 the Estonian Academy of Sciences hosted the "13th Baltic Conference on Intellectual Co-operation: European Research Area and Small Countries".
To continue the prewar tradition (1935-1940) revived in 1999, Baltic Conferences on Intellectual Cooperation are held on a regular basis – every other year. This year representatives of the neighbouring academies convened in Tallinn to share their visions on coordinating activities within the ERA and to discuss relevant topics of common interest. Featuring prominently on its agenda were science policy issues and collaboration between members of the scientific communities in the Baltic area. The conference was attended by the heads of the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Academies of Sciences as well as invited speakers from 6 countries. The Medals of the Baltic Academies of Sciences were awarded to Eugenijus Butkus, Tarmo Soomere and Andris Šternbergs.
The programme and presentations of the conference are available here.
