In pursuit of EU Mission Ocean’s objectives, Blue Mission BANOS’ 1st Mission Arena will take place on 14-16 November in Gothenburg, Sweden. Through interactive sessions, workshops, pitching events, demonstrations and networking, the 1st Mission Arena will serve as a laboratory to:
- Pave the way for innovative blue economy solutions in the Western Baltic
- Showcase local, regional and national approaches for a circular, carbon-neutral blue economy
- Provide concrete pathways for the EU's Mission Ocean’s success
Solutions from the blue economy such as blue food, bioresources, biotechnology, low-trophic aquaculture and products, as well as multi-use will be highlighted as ways to address some of the world's greatest challenges. Existing technical solutions, innovation gaps, funding and business models, as well as regulation and decision making processes will be explored to provide attendants with new knowledge, action paths and ideas.
The Western Baltic covering Germany (Western Baltic); Denmark (East), Sweden (West/South) and Norway (South) will be in the focus of the event. All stakeholders active or interested in the Baltic and North Sea are welcome to join this event.
The Arena is an in-person event, however, the opening and closing sessions will be live streamed. Participation is free of charge, registration is open until 21 October 2023.
