Greetings from the Chairman
Greetings from the Chairman

Dear friends,

the first year of the Helsinki-Uusimaa Chairmanship is coming to an end. It has certainly been an eventful year in interesting times.

As we now live in the shift of the programming periods, actors on different levels in the EU have focused on evaluating the past and planning for the future. It is a lucky coincidence that the 20th Anniversary of the BSSSC was celebrated this year, as the anniversary gave us a great opportunity to look back at what the BSSSC has achieved during the past two decades. The Anniversary was celebrated at the BSSSC Annual Conference and Youth Event organized in Helsinki in October 2013. The 22nd BSSSC Annual Conference will be held in Jurmala, Latvia on the 16th till 17th of October 2014. Remember to save the date!
