Final Smart Blue Regions project conference “The role of regions in fostering blue growth”

Final Smart Blue... On 22nd January 2019, the final Smart Blue Region project conference took place in Berlin. 

The scope of the conference:

Regions have been at the forefront of Blue Growth across the Baltic Sea area. Whether it is for shipping, blue biotechnology, 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 especially focused 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
Thanks to the speakers and participants contribution we now have a better overview of the tools, measures and instruments available or required to foster blue growth – from regions and for regions in the BSR.

Together we have looked into the approaches to financing blue growth cooperation, elaborated on Smart Specialisation as a driver for blue growth and discussed policy measures and support structures for fostering blue growth.
