CB is now Central Baltic

Tuesday, 25 April, 2017
The Facebook group CB communication network for projects was opened for anyone to read and for our projects to post to in November 2016. During 2016 and spring 2017, we have had great posts about media visibility, events and other related information.

Lately, we received feedback that the group is hard to find on Faceboook. Thus, to improve findability, the group is now named Central Baltic communication network for projects (instead of 'CB...'). We are also working on making the group further visible on different platforms, such as the Central Baltic webpage.

All eyes up

The green bar is here. At the top of the page. Yes, just look up. The green bar, or top menu as we are calling it, was added during autumn when the webpage experienced small cosmetic updates. The aim of the new menu is to display content regarding current topics. At the moment, information concentrates around the upcoming third call, its timetable, possible projects and so on. As time passes, the items will be updated to reflect other current matters. The green bar is also a great way to find our contact details quickly and easily, so be sure to check it out. It's just 618 pixels upwards! ... Read more
