The need for an Internet Portal providing comprehensive information about a variety of areas of cooperation and cooperative activities in the Baltic Sea Region was expressed for the first time at the 2nd Coordination Meeting of the Heads of Baltic Sea Region Organizations in Lillehammer, Norway on 25 October 2002. The Secretariat of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS) was hence tasked to launch the project and to present a preliminary draft portal to the 3rd Coordination meeting in Klaipeda, Lithuania on 17 October 2003. At that meeting, the official launch was announced to be on 16 April 2004 at the 4th Baltic Sea NGO Forum in Pärnu, Estonia. The aim of the Portal is to be the main site of reference with regard to Baltic Sea regional information on events, news, ongoing activities and background information.
