Funding the Future was one of ten workshops that took place at the 4th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (12 November 2013 Vilnius, Lithuania.)

Funding is crucial to the implementation of the Strategy. Seed-funding facilities are important; this workshop presents and discusses these initiatives. Workshop participants were provided with new information material and can meet representatives from relevant organisations in charge of seed-funding.
