This session will explore new ways to use marine raw materials such as mussels in animal feed. After a keynote speech about the current and expected market of marine raw materials, pilot cases will be presented, showcasing experiences and progress in this field.
Moderator: Stefan Meyer, Aquaculture Competence Network Schleswig-Holstein
This session will cover various approaches and initiatives to fund environmental services in the Baltic Sea Region. During the workshop, we'll discuss possible and existing measures to fund environmental services such as crowd-funding, donations and compensation schemes. We will also consider the pro's and con's of those measures and conclude on best practices for improving the environmental status of the Baltic Sea.
Moderator: Anda Ikauniece, Latvian Institute of Aquatic Ecology
This session will address the role of Maritime Spatial Planning processes in fostering a better understanding among different stakeholders, in finding optimal space for various blue activities and in creating integrated and sustainable approaches to blue-green regional development. It will discuss in particular the environmental, spatial, economic and societal benefits of co-locating offshore and near-shore activities such as offshore windpower and mussel farming.
Moderator: Ivana Lukic, SUBMARINER Network
To further the development of the industry and change consumer awareness and behaviour, scientific, social and economic skills need to be brougt together. Taking the discussion to business representatives in the blue bioeconomy, this session will explore how we can move from idea to market in the blue bioeconomy.
Moderator: Andrius Sutnikas, Klaipeda Science and Technology Park
Join us for an evening of music, drinks and tapas at the Solar Sky Lounge with a sweeping view of Berlin from the 17th floor. The Berlin skyline is the perfect setting for informal networking. Apart from drinks and food, there will be a live demonstration on how to use seaweed in your cooking from the company Catxalot as well as live music!
Identifying Blue Growth cooperation opportunities between regions around the Baltic Sea based on their Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3) is an important aspect for the region's blue bioeconomy. The aim of this workshop is to analyse the results of a BSR-wide study on smart specialisation, learn about the specific cooperation needs of the RIS3 actors in order to identify concrete Blue Growth cooperation areas between “blue” regions around the Baltic Sea.
Moderator: Magda Leszczyna-Rzucidło, Pomorskie in the EU Association
In a world with increasing demand for protein for an ever-growing population and with limited bio-resources, we are challenged with how to “get more from less”. One under-exploited possibility of producing protein is in large scale on-land fish production in closed recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS). Combined with well-established value chains and secondary production, integrated innovative cultivation technologies could be one solution to the “getting more from less” protein puzzle.
Moderator: Jesper Heldbo, AquaCircle
The sustainable use of marine resources is key for a biobased economy and a major aspect of blue growth. Therefore this session will address current applications and use of chemical substances, i.e. natural products as well as biomaterials derived from marine resources. Workshop speakers will report on their efforts and experiences in innovative research and development of marine biobased products into different markets, ranging from pharmaceuticals, cosmetics to functional food/food supplements. The further aim of the workshop is to discuss the current bottlenecks and offer possible solutions and ideas in these areas to foster blue growth in different stages of the value chain.
Moderator: Deniz Tasdemir, GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel
Nutrient flows in the Baltic Sea water basin is scientifically complex and politically sensitive. This session will showcase and discuss how nutrients detrimental to the Baltic Sea can be mined for use as feed or fertilizers on land, thereby creating blue growth value in the region.
