The final conference for the Baltic Science Network (BSN) and the
CBSS Annual Baltic Sea Science Day was held on the occasion of the
centenary of the University of Latvia, in Riga on 22–23 February 2019.
At the conference the Baltic Sea Science Day Award 2019 was granted four scientists, of which one, Savitri Jetoo, is a researcher at Åbo Akademi University.
This was the launch of the award, which was presented to celebrate
the achievements of young promising minds doing research on the topics
of great importance to the Baltic Sea Region.
The Baltic Sea Science Day 2019 Award was presented to Pinja Näkki (University of Helsinki), Emiliya Popova, Andris Bērziņš
and Savitri Jetoo for an outstanding contribution to transnational
research cooperation within the Baltic Sea Region and promotion of the

eutrophication, with other regions of the world (eg. Great Lakes and
Chesapeake Bay). Also, her ability to form networks with scientists in
other regions of the world contributed to winning the award.
To identify the best candidates for the award, the CBSS Secretariat
engaged with its key partners Baltic Sea Region University Network,
Baltic University Programme, as well as the Lead Partners of the

Baltic Science Network (BSN)
is an Interreg Baltic Sea Region funded project, with the aim to
provide science and research ministries of the Baltic Sea region states
with an overall coordination framework to develop and implement science
policy in a macro-regional dimension and to ensure a better
representation of macro-regional interests on the EU level.
