Better off Blue

Thank you to all the members, friends and supporters of the SUBMARINER Network who came to Berlin in the end of September and made a success of the 2nd SUBMARINER Conference Better off Blue. We had a variety of excellent discussions and would like to thank all the participants and in particular our speakers, workshop organisers and panellists for their stimulating contributions.

We hope you enjoyed the conference and that the match-making sessions provided you with new contacts and projects. We are certainly inspired and full of new ideas for cooperation across the Baltic and beyond.

Below you can find the documentation of the Better Off Blue Conference including summaries of the workshops and speakers' presentations. And of course, don't forget to watch the video from the conference, now online!
