Maritime Affairs



  • European Maritime Day
  • EU Aquaculture Online

Competition for maritime space. To some, it could invoke references to the 17th century Anglo-Dutch wars, fighting for control over trade routes, but in fact it is a very topical – though much more civilized – affair today.

The blue biotechnology sector is a fascinating niche in the European blue economy. It uses living marine organisms – algae, bacteria, fungi, shellfish – to develop new, sustainable applications for a variety of sectors, ranging from pharmaceuticals and textiles to chemicals, packaging, fuel and more.

European Maritime Day this year is going virtual from Den Helder, The Netherlands on 20 and 21 May 2021. Check the provisional programme, with plenaries on Sustainable Blue Economy and Green Recovery, 20 attracting workshops, 3 pitch stage sessions and many B2B meetings opportunities.
