The blue bioeconomy has the ambition to create sustainable change in aquatic bioproduction processes. Thus, it grows mainly in regions with access to natural, large water areas, especially coastal regions, such as the Baltic Sea. Looking forward to welcome your best graduates in Northern Germany soon!

About the Cluster
The blue bioeconomy innovation cluster Bioeconomy at Marine Sites (BaMS) combines the leading research organizations, as well as innovative companies and influencers of the blue bioeconomy value chain in Northern Germany. The members of the cluster represent the most relevant parts of the supply chain, encompassing primary production of aquatic biomass (fisheries, aquaculture, fish, algae and others) as well as processing, finishing and side-streams. The cluster thrives to implement aquatic circular economy business models, making fully sustainable use of aquatic biomass, embracing the use of nutrient-rich emissions from other sectors and unlocking the carbon-capture potential of aquatic biomass. The cluster supports its members with project funding, development of model- and demonstration sites on industrial scale and implementation activities to support the sustainable growth of the business sector.
