Leading blue economy innovation ecosystem players to share their knowledge and build capacity and investment opportunities in two subsectors: aquaculture and fisheries, and renewable marine energy and decarbonisation, for a sustainable future.

I3-4-BLUE GROWTH aims to build capacities of less-developed European regions to build and reinforce the capabilities of blue economy ecosystems in the identification of interregional innovation and investment projects, for the development of a sustainable and smart green and blue economy.
The core focus will be on two core value chains with potential for innovation and growth, in particular: sustainable seafood, aquaculture and valorization of blue resources (value chain #1), and maritime renewable energy and decarbonization of the maritime sector (value chain #2). Identification and mapping of opportunities for innovative, sustainable and deeptech investments across those sectors will be at the core of the project activities.
I3-4-BLUE-GROWTH will promote regional capacity building in six less developed regions from four countries (Azores, Center and North – Portugal; Andalusia – Spain, Pomorskie – Poland, and Croatia – HR), situated in four different macro-regions (Atlantic, Baltic, Mediterranean, and Adriatic), while exploring synergies and opportunities of collaboration with leading blue economy clusters across Europe.
