Investment opportunities in Baltic Sea Region was the focus of a seminar co-organized by the European Commission (DG MARE) and ‘Race for the Baltic’ foundation during the 10th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (12 & 13 June 2019, Gdansk, Poland).
The cross-sector seminar explored investment in sustainable “blue” ventures, in particular for SMEs and start-ups. Discussions centered around investment gaps and the available sources of financing, including innovative financial instruments.
The speakers also presented concrete circular economy examples from the Baltic, ranging from aquaculture, blue bio-technology to renewable ocean energy and green shipping, while the Commission introduced the upcoming technical assistance mechanism.
