Members of the Euroregion Baltic and representatives of other important stakeholders involved in the ERB cooperation met on the 28th October 2014 in Gdańsk, Poland for the 5th Annual Forum of ERB Stakeholders entitled “Labour mobility, higher education and youth cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region – addressing common challenges”. The event was organized jointly with the South Baltic Professionals project and hosted by the Office of the Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship.

During the Forum stakeholders took part in discussions on the challenges and problems currently faced by the inhabitants of the regions of the South Baltic area, such as labour market mobility, internationalisation of higher education institutions and youth cooperation.

The Forum tried to identify barriers hampering the development of labour mobility, and find out if creation of stable and dedicated networks of relevant stakeholders could be a key to solving this problem.

Further discussions concerned methods allowing universities and other higher education institutions to cooperate better on the international level, thus providing students with better education and other skills that would allow them to pursue their careers in increasingly competitive working environments.

Finally, the prospects of youth cooperation in our region and how it could be bolstered by relevant actors were investigated.
