Maritime Forum

Next Stakeholder Conference: 25 June, Brussels

x

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.
