Maritime Institute in Gdansk, the lead partner of the SUBMARINER project informs that ‘compendium’ is now available.


The SUBMARINER Compendium has been designed to provide, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the contribution the Baltic Sea Region can make to European wide initiatives on Blue Growth and a sustainable bioeconomy. The current state of knowledge has been gathered and set against the backdrop of environmental, institutional and regulatory conditions for all innovative marine uses investigated within the SUBMARINER project. As a result of this, the Compendium also provides an overview on obstacles and limitations to more widespread adoption or expansion under current conditions as well as recommendations to address these obstacles.
Download and contribute to consultation
Download the current version which is now open for consultation and contributions from stakeholders across the Baltic Sea Region and beyond until 30 April 2013.


The SUBMARINER Compendium serves as the background for the SUBMARINER Roadmap to be published in summer 2013, indicating the concrete steps to be taken in the coming years within the Baltic Sea Region so as to promote beneficial uses and mitigate against negative impacts. The SUBMARINER Roadmap will include recommendations on research topics, institutional and legal initiatives, legal changes, environmental regulations and economic incentives. It shall serve as a predictive instrument for identifying future trends and be a basis for strategic policy.

SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Perspectives now available

alt alt

Maritime Institute in Gdansk, the Lead Partner of the SUBMARINER project informs that the publication : "Blue Biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region: New Strategies and Future Perspectives" is now available.

Can the Baltic Sea Region be a model region for Blue Biotechnology? And which steps have to be taken to further strengthen the region's competetitiveness in this field? These were some of the leading questions that were discussed at the SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event in Kiel, Germany in May 2012.
The perspectives from this Cooperation Event have now been assembled in our latest publication: "Blue Biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region: New Strategies and Future Perspectives". The contributions are based on the presentations held at the SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event. They form an important input to the policy recommendations for furthering beneficial marine uses that the SUBMARINER project is currently developing.

Maritime Institute in Gdansk, the Lead Partner of the SUBMARINER project invites You to the 'Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event: New Strategies and Future Perspectives' which take place in Kiel, Germany on May 9th and 10th, 2012.
The event focuses on the exploration of the great biodiversity of marine organisms such as macroalgae, invertebrates, and microorganisms, which offer a promising potential for scientific research and biotechnological application towards high value products. The conference aims at enhancing the awareness for Blue Biotechnology and at strengthening the Baltic Sea Region’s competitiveness in this field. It will offer a platform for networking and cooperation among scientists, private companies and public institutions working in this field.

Topics of this event are biotechnological applications of bioactive compounds, enzymes, and biopolymers from marine organisms. The presentations will cover advanced scientific approaches and technologies, case studies of companies working in this field, European projects as well as strategies for promoting Blue Biotechnology.

The Maritime Institute in Gdańsk invites to the final conference:
Advancing Maritime Spatial Planning: Results from the BaltSeaPlan project and beyond
Date: 12th January 2012

Location: Berlin,
Conference Organiser: German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency – BSH (Lead Partner BaltSeaPlan)
Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) has become a widely acknowledged and necessary tool for co-ordinating spatial use and balancing of interests in the sea. In view of increasing needs to protect the marine environment and at the same time expanding activities such as offshore wind energy parks and growing shipping traffic such systematic, integrative and forward-looking planning is required in order to safeguard the sustainable development of the oceans.

Among the numerous developments on MSP at European level as well as its regions, states and maritime areas, the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) can certainly claim to be the pioneer among European sea regions in the field of MSP. But also here MSP is far from being established practice and many more steps need to be undertaken.

The conference aims to show and trigger discussions on latest MSP developments at policy as well as implementation level within the European Commission and the Baltic Sea Region. It is open to maritime spatial planning experts and decision makers around all European countries.
