Nordic Road Map for Blue Bioeconomy
Finland has the Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2016. The chairmanship program focuses on water, nature and people. Finland has also launched a three-year program (2016-2018) to develop and implement a Nordic Roadmap for Blue Bioeconomy. The work is done in close collaboration with the Nordic countries.
The Nordic countries have well developed sustainable policies and management systems for industries that are based on marine and freshwater resources. Also the cooperation among the Nordic countries in this field is extensive. The objective of developing a Nordic Roadmap for Blue Bioeconomy is to take this cooperation to a further level by coordinating efforts in research and development and by developing smart regulation. The ultimate objective is to embark on a growth trend that will boost the Blue Bioeconomy sectors.
The main event in developing the Nordic Road map is the international conference on Blue Bioeconomy that will be held at the House of the Estates, Helsinki 31.5.-1.6. 2016.
The #BlueNordic conference aims at an interactive discussion on the growth potential in Blue Bioeconomy. Participants in the conference will have the possibility to hear and meet forerunners in the Blue Bioeconomy business and learn about innovative and smart solutions in value creation from aquatic renewable resources. Participants will also get an advance presentation of the draft Nordic Road Map for Blue Bioeconomy and will have the possibility to affect the draft.
