Mission Arena Description

In pursuit of EU Mission Ocean’s objectives, Blue Mission BANOS 1st Mission Arena will take place on 14-16 November in Gothenburg, Sweden at the Lindholmen Conference Centre. Through interactive sessions, workshops, pitching events, demonstrations and networking, the 1st Mission Arena will serve as a laboratory to: 

  • Pave the way for innovative blue economy solutions in the Western Baltic
  • Showcase local, regional and national approaches for a circular, carbon-neutral blue economy
  • Provide concrete pathways for the EU's Mission Ocean’s success

Solutions from the blue economy such as blue food, bioresources, biotechnology, low-trophic aquaculture & products, and multi-use will be highlighted as ways to address some of our world's greatest challenges.

Existing technical solutions, innovation gaps, funding and business models, as well as regulation and decision making processes will be explored to provide attendants with new knowledge, action paths and ideas. 

    The Western Baltic covering Germany (Western Baltic); Denmark (East), Sweden (West/South) and Norway (South) will be in the focus of the event. All stakeholders active or interested in the Baltic and North Sea are welcome to join us.

    The Arena is an in-person event, however, the opening and closing sessions will be live streamed. Participation is free of charge, however, if you are unable to attend, please deregister as soon as possible to give other interested stakeholders an opportunity to attend.
