A new platform for the Baltic Blue Bioeconomy

Kick-off event of the new Blue Platform for the BSR project took place in Helsinki on 5-6 November.



The new Interreg project model called “Platform projects” has now materialised in a number of platforms. One of them is the Blue Platform where the PAC Bioeconomy-Fishery and Aquaculture is participating. The aim is to gather project promotors and partners from former projects in the Baltic Sea Region focused on blue bioeconomy and connect the results and products from these projects to develop the knowledge further and put the products in use. There are databases, mappings and information gathered for many aspects of blue bioeconomy that now can be used to create new information and thus promote the blue bioeconomy.

The Environmental Institute SYKE in Finland is lead partner in the project, while the SUBMARINER network with its secretariat based in Berlin acts as the main coordinator especially for the communication and dissemination within the project.

Other partners are:

  • University of Tartu, UTARTU, Estonia
  • Guldborgssund municipality, Denmark
  • Latvian Institute of Aquatic Environment, Latvia
  • University of Gdansk, Poland
  • Maritime Institute in Gdansk, Poland
  • Klaipeda Technical Institute, Lithuania
  • Kaliningrad University
  • Swedish Board of Agriculture, PAC Bioeconomy-Fishery and Aquaculture

The partners have participated in a variety of (and are still participating in some ongoing) BSR projects such as:

  • Baltic Blue Growth (INTERREG)
  • Baltic Blue Biotechnology alliance (INTERREG)
  • SmartBlue Regions (INTERREG)
  • InnoAqua Tech (SOUTH-BALTIC)
  • Plan4Blue (Central Baltic)
  • MUSES - Multi-Use of in European Seas (Horizon 2020)
