    The event focuses on the priorities, potential and opportunities for business innovation, partnerships and value creation in the marine or maritime sector in Europe.

    Norway and Iceland support business innovation programmes in nine countries across Europe through the EEA and Norway Grants: Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Slovakia. The event is organised in cooperation with these partners but it is relevant for other European countries as well.

    Participation is open for businesses, clusters, researchers, policymakers and other stakeholders in the marine or maritime business sector. 

    The event is hybrid. It will gather more than 200 representatives of businesses, clusters, researchers, policymakers and stakeholders in Athens, Greece. It will also be streamed online and provide a digital matchmaking with B2B meetings.

    Participation is free of charge. Digital participation is open to everyone. Registrations are open!

    In-person (physical) participation at the event in Greece is limited to around 180 people from across Europe. Participants will be selected based on expressions of interest. The costs will be covered by the EEA and Norway Grants. The expression of interest is here

    Blue Growth in the EEA and Norway Grants
    The EEA and Norway Grants support business development, innovation and SMEs programmes in nine European countries: See all programmes here

    In Blue Growth, the EEA and Norway Grants programmes support business cooperation, innovation, value creation and competitiveness in the marine and maritime sectors. Seas, oceans, coastal areas, rivers and lakes are drivers of the European economy. They have great potential for innovation, new technology and growth, but they are also at risk. The EEA and Norway Grants support projects that develop new technologies, processes or solutions contributing to a greener and more competitive Europe.

    The Open Calls for Proposals on Blue Growth
    The EEA and Norway Grants provides funding to projects through open calls for proposals. The first half of 2022 will see a boost of activities on blue growth - in open calls, events and other opportunities for cooperation. See an overview:
