Östersjöfonden is running and participating in various types of events and projects that you will find more information about here.

Award Ceremony

The Award Ceremony is held every year in May. The festivities begin with a seminar with this year’s Award Winners as the main speakers. We have the opportunity to get to know them and their work. The theme of the seminar is largely governed by the Award Winners’ fields of work and thematic focus.

The evening begins with the actual Award Ceremony, where the founder of Östersjöfonden, Anders Wiklöf, hands over the awards to the winners in the various categories. After the Award Ceremony, the award winners are honored with a consert. The evening ends with a banquet.

We also get to meet former Award Winners over the years and get a little glimpse of how the Baltic Sea Region might look like 2049.

The seminar is held in English and is free of charge.
