Innovation driving Blue Growth

On 19 and 20 May 2014, European Maritime Day was devoted to innovation and maritime technologies. Europe needs to be at the forefront of the Blue economy revolution. To deliver growth and jobs to its underemployed youth, and to ensure that this is not a temporary blip. We want future generations to enjoy the fruits of the sea as much as ourselves. In Bremen, politicians, experts, CEOs and civil society representatives discussed this challenge and submited their ideas to European policy-makers.
