What is topical in the blue bioeconomy right now? How will the key project proceed in spring 2019? The key project event on the blue bioeconomy brings together project implementers and people who are interested in new solutions and innovations.

The event is part of the implementation of the national development plan on the blue bioeconomy, with total funding of EUR 5 million. Several projects on the blue bioeconomy have been funded under this Government key project. The topics range from the utilisation of nutrients and energy to new service concepts for water tourism, internationalisation of the water sector and digitalisation. Measures of the key project have also been promoted through other funding; e.g. innovation programmes for fisheries have received financial support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

Time: Friday 15 March at 10.00–13.00

Venue: Pressiaula, Kanavakatu 3 C, Helsinki, Finland

The event will be opened by Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Jari Leppä.

The purpose of the event is to see what is happening in the most recent projects on the blue bioeconomy and promote networking between stakeholders in the sector. We will hear about the projects that are under way and discuss the opportunities offered by the blue bioeconomy and its societal impact.

We will map out the potential synergies between the projects and consider the fields and solutions that may be scalable and multipliable and have potential for internationalisation. The project implementers will also tell about their visions on the future and what they wish for from the administration.

Welcome to hear about the key projects on the blue bioeconomy and network with experts!
