Conference " Marine and maritime research: A driver of blue growth"

19 February 2014 – European Parliament

The SUBMARINER Network - flagship project of the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region - was presented in the Conference "Taking advantage of the blue growth potential in European coastal regions - How can marine and maritime research contribute to blue growth?", held on 19 February 2014 at the European Parliament.

This event looked at how research can unlock the blue growth potential of Europe. In particular, it showed how a better linking of research and industry can contribute to make the most out of the opportunities in the maritime economy. Innovative examples were presented from selected focus areas that have been identified as holding some of the highest blue growth potential.

The SUBMARINER Network was presented at Session 1: New Exploitation of Living Marine Resources and Biodiversity by Joanna Przedrzymirska from Maritime Institute in Gdansk.

Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP

Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP project partner invites to the conference:

"Management of dredged material and offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic Region”

Cross-border Dissemination Event II
11.12.2013
Gdańsk/ Poland

Port development is vital for economic development and transport. However, maintaining the parameters of waterways and basins is associated with the deepening and this creates certain problems, the most important is development of mined ore (sediment). Annually there is produced several million cubic meters of sediment, much of which is deposited on a specially selected locations (Dumping Sites) in the Baltic Sea area. This action is economically beneficial, but carried out in an irregular manner can be a real threat to the marine environment.

Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP project partner invites to the conference: Management of dredged material and offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic Region” Cross-border Dissemination Event II which will take place in Gdańsk, Poland on 11.12.2013.

During the conference preliminary results of the ECODUMP project (Application of ecosystem principles for the location and management of offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic region), will be presented. The project principal objective is to develop comprehensive guidelines for ecosystem methodology to choose where to deposit sediments in the Sea and management of offshore dumping sites in the south-eastern region of the Baltic Sea in the context of the risks reduction to the marine environment and improvement the quality use of marine resources.

The official conference language is English. Organizers provide simultaneous translation.

Maritime Institute as the lead partner of SUBMARINER and PartiSEAparte project invites to Seminar on “Perspectives of Aquaculture in the Baltic Sea Region – Results of the Projects AQUAFIMA, AQUABEST, PartiSEApate and SUBMARINER” in Brussels, on Tuesday, 26th November 2013

The topic of aquaculture and its future perspectives in the Baltic Sea Region is dealt with in several transnational projects at the moment. The projects have different foci, but all have in common to see aquaculture as a great potential for sustainable fisheries, food supply and regional development in the Baltic Sea Region. Furthermore, the Blue Growth initiative of the EU Commission has defined aquaculture as one focus area to foster sustainable growth and jobs in the blue economy.

17th International Fairs ECOMONDO and KEY ENERGY Fairs in Rimini (Italy)

altaltalt

Increasing awareness of the offshore wind energy potential for regional development results in the incorporation of the subject into conferences, exhibitions and fairs organised by environmental sector with support of regional and local authorities. On behalf of Rimini Province, partner of the international initiative 4POWER, the Maritime Institute in Gdansk invites all interested parties to participate in the 17th International Fairs of Material and Energy Recovery and Sustainable Development ECOMONDO that will be held on 6 – 9 of November 2013, in Rimini (Italy).

Important part of the Fairs will be constituted by fairs and conference KEY ENERGY addressed to wind energy sector. According to the organizers the event will host a broad representation of the wind energy companies from Italy.

Agenda of KEY ENERGY includes conference dedicated to Offshore Wind Energy at the Adriatic Sea and strategies and tools supporting development of the Offshore Wind Energy in the European Union. Important part of the conference will be presentation of the 4POWER project results, including recommendations of activities to be undertaken by regional authorities and stakeholders in order to support offshore wind energy sector development. Upon completion, the recommendations will be passed to the Committee of Regions. The recommendations may potentially be used at the creation of the development policies addressed to the EU regions. Incorporation of the recommendations into the priorities of development policy may further result in allocation of financial resources to support activities implementing this policy.

Along with KEY ENERGY, the ECOMONDO Fairs will host other branches of environmental protection and communal services, such as:

  • Waste treatment
  • Recycling and services
  • Waste handling and transport
