Maritime Forum

The Blue Bioeconomy Forum brings together a partnership of industry, public authorities, academia, and finance in order to strengthen Europe's competitive position in the emerging blue bioeconomy.

The aim of the forum is to develop a shared understanding of the current status of the emerging blue bioeconomy in Europe and to collectively identify strategic developments, market opportunities, appropriate financial assistance, regulatory actions and research priorities to advance the blue bioeconomy in Europe. The forum seeks to exploit synergies between blue bioeconomy sectors that can benefit from innovative uses of aquatic biomass. It looks into biomass sourcing for particular (novel) purposes, such as animal feed and feed additives, food products (functional, fermented or fried), pharmaceuticals, or cosmetics. Particular attention is also given to the valorisation and use of remainder for other applications (e.g. valorisation of chitin, shells and other bioactive components).

The Blue Bioeconomy Forum is composed of a steering group and several working groups, supported by a secretariat managed by Technopolis Group and Wageningen University and Research. To ensure the engagement of the wider community of stakeholders, consultations on promising new initiatives and the roadmap will be organised through open stakeholders’ events and open online discussions. Blue bioeconomy information and news can be found in the “News and events" section.

Multi-use ocean platforms: an emerging concept

In crowded seas such as those around the European Union – including, for example, the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Mediterranean – pressures on the environment are building and space is at a premium. In managing these areas, the interests of different economic sectors, including fishing, energy, shipping and tourism, must be considered.

Landing the blue bioeconomy, challenges and solutions

From the bounties of the sea to the endless power of blue energy, awareness of the blue bioeconomy is growing by the day. But one promising sector struggles to establish its ‘blue’ credentials and faces unique challenges largely because of one detail … it is an ‘out of sea’ experience. That sector is fish farming and mixed agri- and aquaculture.
