Bioenergy, medicines and plastics from the sea? The expectations from society and market towards the marine biobased economy to develop new innovative products have risen during recent years. How can cooperation across borders contribute to fostering smart and conscious uses of marine resources in Europe? And which bottlenecks remain to be tackled, e.g. in technology development? These are questions to be discussed during the workshop, which builds on some examples of different European projects.
