We envision a healthy ocean and a productive sustainable blue economy

The SUBMARINER Network brings together actors from the Baltic Sea Region to promote innovative and sustainable uses of marine resources to protect our marine environment and promote sustainable economic development. The Network connects authorities, research institutions, civil society, and private companies, to integrate local perspectives into transnational frameworks.

Your guide to the sustainable blue economy

In addressing the multifaceted challenges of our time, we have strategically aligned our focus areas with the ambitions set by the EU Green Deal, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the EU Mission Ocean. Through our nine core solutions, we tackle pressing issues including overfishing, plastic pollution, eutrophication, competitiveness, biodiversity loss, climate change, rural desertification, and demographic growth. By integrating science, innovation, and collaboration, we aspire to pave the way towards a healthier, more resilient ocean and a sustainable blue economy for generations to come.
