So far, 20 topics for cooperation have been identified in the course of the SBR project.
SUBMARINER Network together with The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), the Tartu Biotechnology Park and 4 SMEs from the Baltic Blue Biotechnology ALLIANCE are going to the Biomarine Business Convention in Cascais Portugal. Our aim is to promote blue bio actors and initiatives from the Baltic Sea Region to the global Biomarine business community.
Last week more than 90 delegates met in Greifswald at the conference “Blue Biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region: From Science to Business”.
The conference will engage a wide range of interested stakeholders from the business community, public administrations and academia. The aim is to present the EU-wide Multi-Use Action Plan that addresses a variety of multi-use combinations including offshore wind farms combined with the wave technology or different types of aquaculture, but also some ‘softer’ approaches to multi-use such as underwater cultural heritage in combination with tourism or ‘pescatourism’.
On 22 January 2019 the Smart Blue Regions project together with the other Submariner Network projects will host the Conference “The Role of Regions in fostering Blue Growth” in Berlin.
