Better Off Blue Conference
SAVE THE DATE and mark your calendars!
The *Better Off Blue* Conference - THE Blue Bioeconomy event of the #Baltic (and beyond) - will take place:
Week of 22 March 2021
The Better Off Blue 2.0 Conference is organised and co-financed by the Blue Platform project - as one of the project activities is to bring together actors from across the Blue Bioeconomy fields, including but not limited to actors such as policy-makers, academia, industry and young companies as well as NGOs, general citizens and any other parties interested in or working in the Baltic Blue Bioeconomy. The Conference will serve to present the outputs of the Blue Platform project, as well as the Baltic Blue Bioeconomy Roadmap 2030.. Following a dedicated give-and take approach, all participants will be encouraged to actively participate in the discussions, in order to gather feedback on the Blue Platform project as well as the GRASS (Growing Algae Sustainably in the Baltic Sea) and Alliance+ (Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance+) projects). During the Conference, you will see input presentations from key actors in the Baltic Blue Bioeconomy as well as interactive sessions to discuss what is the status quo of the Baltic Blue Bioeconomy in 2021: the immediate, mid- and longer-term goals - and more concretely, the specific actions that should be taken up to achieve this. You don't want to miss this - there will also be specific networking opportunities for each type of stakeholder. Curious?
