SUBMARINER Network at the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Conference (G-STIC) in Brussels
On Thursday 21 November an open theme day on the ocean took place at the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Conference (G-STIC) in Brussels. The Oceans theme day, organised by the Blue Cluster, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and the Benelux General Secretariat, had an inspiring program based on five themes:
- Nature based solutions for coastal protection
- Clean shipping and alternative fuels
- Marine Spatial Planning
- Smart Sea
The day was packed with new ideas and networking opportunities including a semi-plenary session ‘Blue technologies within sustainable ocean resources’ in the morning, parallel ‘deep dive’ sessions in the afternoon and an Industry Night for companies.
