On 14 – 15 May 2018, the second EL-CSID workshop “Diplomacy and Development: Trends and Challenges for Europe and Its Partners” took place in Brussels organised by Nazarbayev University, in collaboration with the University of Warwick and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Baltic TRAM was discussed during the presentation “Council of the Baltic Sea States: The Role of Sustainable and Prosperous Region in Bringing the Science Diplomacy Forward” as an example of implicit science diplomacy example emanating from the Baltic Sea Region. The workshop served as an excellent occasion to draw attention of a wider circle of policy practitioners and researchers to the developments in the Baltic Sea Region.

Due to the overall richness of Baltic TRAM undergoing work, it is an inspiring example not solely for other transnational actors active in the Baltic Sea Region, but also to the wider community of stakeholders engaged in the European affairs. The workshop proved that Baltic TRAM serves as a thought provoking initiative not solely in the domains of transnational sustainability and innovation. It holds a potential to explain the multifaceted potential multilateral research collaboration holds in promoting an enduring prosperity and competitiveness of a macroregion.
