Smart Blue Regions conference THE ROLE OF REGIONS IN FOSTERING BLUE GROWTH

22 January 2019

s.Pro will organise and moderate the conference of the Smart Blue Regions project "The role of regions in fostering blue growth". This conference will build upon the results of several transnational projects that all aim to foster blue growth – from regions and for regions in the BSR. This conference is a forum for the Blue Growth cooperation of tomorrow.

Regions have been at the forefront of Blue Growth across the Baltic Sea area. Whether it is forshipping, blue bio-technology, coastal tourism or aquaculture, regions have developed innovative approaches to enhance Blue Growth. This conference will build upon the results of several transnational projects that all aim to foster blue growth – from regions and for regions in the BSR.

This conference will especially focus on:

• Paving the way for regional Blue Growth cooperation

• Smart Specialisation and Multi-Use as drivers for Blue Growth

• Approaches to financing Blue Growth cooperation

• Policy measures and support structures for fostering Blue Growth

Join us on the 22nd January in Berlin!
