Cambridge Baltic Conference 2014 to focus on education

Some of the finest minds in the Baltic are to gather in Cambridge on 10/11 October to discuss education, which is the theme of this year’s Cambridge Baltic Conference.

After a successful one day event in 2013, which focused on the Baltic/EU relationship, the event is now spread over two days, the first being given over to workshops which will be attended by students from Cambridge University.

The conference proper will begin on Saturday with a keynote address from Dr Roberts Ķīlis, former Latvian Minister of Education and Science, on “Skills versus Knowledge in Secondary Education”.

Other distinguished guests include Sir Paul Judge (benefactor of the Judge Business School), Maive Rute, former CEO of KredEx in Estonia and now a Resource Director at the European Commission, and Tõnu Pekk, Chairman of the Board of Young Scholar Grant.

The patrons include all three serving British Ambassadors in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.


Tickets and further information is available at Cambridge Baltic Conference.
