iBSG (Informal Baltic Sea Group)

iBSG is the unofficial network of the Baltic Sea regions’ Brussels offices. iBSG wants to improve the visibility of Baltic Sea regions to strengthen their EU level position, and it participates actively in discussions concerning the Baltic Sea.

The network follows actively the implementation of the European Union’s Baltic Sea strategy and gathers the actors of the Baltic Sea area to discuss current matters. The network also arranges Baltic Sea themed events.

The members of the network are about 70 regional Brussels offices from the area of the Baltic Sea. The network is led by a steering group of 13 regional offices, in which the East and North Finland EU Office is a member.
