The Blue Bioeconomy Forum was set up in 2018 as a platform for entrepreneurs, researchers, government officials and other stakeholder to further develop the blue bioeconomy. At the centre of this initiative was the creation of a roadmap to identify the future regulatory, financial assistance and product needs.
Over the past year and a half two stakeholder meetings and a consultation have been organised to collect input on the drivers and obstacles for the blue bioeconomy to develop and grow. As such, the roadmap also identifies the critical enables and bottlenecks that need to be removed.
ERRIN’s Blue Growth WG organised a meeting with the Blue Bioeconomy secretariat on 3 June this year to discuss the progress of and feed in ideas to the roadmap.
