The Maritime Institute in Gdańsk and the Pomorskie in the EU Associations, project partners of the Smart Blue Regions project, in cooperation with the national contact point (NCP) networks BioHorizon and ETNAplus, are organising the „Be Smart, Think Blue“ conference on the 19th and 20th September 2016 in Gdansk.
Three projects, namely the Smart Blue Regions Interreg BSR project (Smart specialisation and Blue Growth in the Baltic Sea Region) and the two European NCP network projects BioHorizon (Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy) and ETNAplus (Smart, green and integrated transport), have joined forces to strengthen Europe’s capacity for efficient Blue Growth.
Smart specialisation is a key concept for boosting innovation around the EU. Understanding the role of smart specialisation in enhancing the European Blue Growth sector is a prerequisite to making the most of the sea of opportunities open to stakeholders. In addition to regional specialisation and funding, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, provides several funding opportunities for marine and maritime R&I projects on a European scale. Creating synergies between all available funding sources is the ultimate goal of the “BE SMART – THINK BLUE” event.
The aim of the overall two-day event is to create an inspiring space and encourage a spirit of effective cooperation amongst blue growth actors from across Europe.
