Working together to improve the 
Baltic Sea environment and economies

We are your guide in the world of Baltic Blue Bioeconomy & beyond

The SUBMARINER Network is a unique platform that brings actors from the whole Baltic Sea Region together to actively promote innovative and sustainable uses of marine resources. It operates across the whole knowledge triangle integrating perspectives from local to international scale, different science disciplines as well as policy and economic stakeholders.

Key facts about SUBMARINER

  • The network is a hub for projects, initiatives and activities at all levels. Taking offset in the SUBMARINER Roadmap, it encompasses transnational and cross-border regional development, innovation and research projects, as well as the various initiatives at local and business level. Via meetings, workshops, conferences and a comprehensive set of dissemination tools, network members are provided with a continuous platform for communication, exchanges of experience, joint project development and implementation.

  • As a flagship project under the priority area “Innovation” of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR), the SUBMARINER Network represents the blue economy at this macro-regional level. In this capacity it also regularly issues joint position papers and contributes to the further development of the EUSBSR.

  • While its roots lie in the Baltic Sea Region, the SUBMARINER Network also reaches out beyond its geographical base to engage in partnerships with actors that share its thematic vision across Europe, inter alia as a member of the European Centre for Information on Marine Science and Technology, EurOcean. As such, it functions as the brdige between the Baltic Sea Region and the rest of the EU.

  • The SUBMARINER Network is registered as a not-for-profit European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) and is managed by a professional secretariat.
