The workshop will also present the benefits resulting from this commercialisation for ports, harbours and coastal regions, and provide an overview of what stakeholders can expect from this exciting new area of Blue Growth.

The workshop will focus on three key blue growth markets identified in the Commission’s Blue Growth report, and their value chains, comprising: offshore wind farms; aquaculture; and marine renewable energy. The workshop aims at identifying how ports and other major facilities can leverage investment in blue growth, at exploring how maritime clusters can  maximise this leverage, with emphasis on innovation and international competitiveness, building on the REMCAP project and at stimulating new collaborative relationships and consortia, involving cluster organisations, port & facility operators and innovative firms.
