Joint Secretariat in Summer Mode

As the sun graces our days with warmth and the scent of blooming flowers fills the air, the Joint Secretariat team is gearing up for a summer break.

Most of our staff will be embracing the spirit of the season and taking their holidays during July. Sunhats, sunglasses, and sandy toes—here we come! Some lucky souls will extend their summer adventures into August. We promise they’ll return with sun-kissed smiles.

While we’re sipping lemonade and catching rays, our services will be on a chill mode. Expect a relaxed pace, like a hammock swaying in a gentle breeze. Response times may be slightly longer than usual. We appreciate your understanding as we recharge our creativity.

In the meantime, dive into our upcoming events and explore the Project webspace to get to know our funded projects and follow their inspiring journeys. Who knows? You might discover the next big thing!

As August approaches, our team will be back, ready to embark on new adventures with you. We wish you a fantastic summer filled with joy, adventure, and memories that will last a lifetime. Catch those rays and see you soon!

Whether you’re building sandcastles, exploring our funded projects, or simply basking in the summer glow, remember to treat yourself to a spoonful of Central Baltic’s Mess—a taste of our shared adventure, inspired by Eton Mess, with a Baltic twist.
