Kick-off Conference of Maritime Stakeholder Platform in the Baltic Sea Region

In May 2014 the European Commission adopted  a "Sustainable Blue Growth Agenda for the Baltic Sea Region". It calls for a stakeholder-driven, cross-Baltic approach to innovation, sustainability, skills and qualifications. As a first step of this agenda, the European Commission launched a Maritime Stakeholder Platform on 26-27 March 2015 in Kiel, Germany. Commissioner Karmenu Vella, Parliamentary State Secretary Uwe Beckmeyer and MEP Ulrike Rodust participated in the event along with key maritime stakeholders from business, academia and the public sector across the Baltic Sea region to discuss smart specialisation, maritime technologies and skills and employment.
