Why attend ?

FOR THE INNOVATORS.

Explore novel technologies, startups and resources with cross-industrial synergies and make the ocean your preferred source for venture development. Learn from leading researchers, gain inspiration from industry leading companies and matchmake with investors and entrepreneurs. Experience this one of a kind event.

FOR THE FRONTRUNNERS.

We know. You’re not only joining because of the subtropical Danish weather. You are here to gain the latest insights in the emerging market of blue growth and the synergies to agrotech and foodtech, so that your business can develop in the right direction. This conference is the preferred place for networking, matchmaking and tech scouting.

FOR THE VISIONARY

The EU and Commonwealth Secretariat has estimated the value of Europe’s Blue Economy to be worth €500M with a yearly added value of 10%. But we only utilise approximately 5% of the resources provided by the oceans and sea basins. Take this and combine it with the synergies to Agrotech and Foodtech. Then investors can find a world of new impact investment opportunities. This is your matchmaking playground for Blue Growth.

FOR THE KNOWLEDGABLE

Much of the cutting-edge knowledge exists in universities and research institutions. Startups, on the other hand, are one of the most efficient vehicles for taking great ideas and scaling their impact. Put these two together, and you have a powerful mix.

FOR PIONEERS.

Being a first-mover in the technological space or in bio science is tough. We know how much a network mean in developing a scalable business. But a network is not all. You need the right network, in the field you are in. This is what you will get.

FOR CHANGE-MAKERS.

Is there a reason why most rural areas also are coast near? In fact, Blue Growth innovation often requires direct access to marine territories. Put these perspectives together and politicians have an opportunity to support job creation, population composition and attract business by intensifying support for the Blue Growth sectors. This is where politicians and government officials meet the economic future.

FOR TALENT.

Seeking a job once you graduate or do you want to know what knowledge the industry and startups are seeking. Then this is your ideal space to grasp the insights. Who knows, you might even find your startup co-founder.

The Conference Program

BLUE GROWTH INNOVATION TO SECURE FUTURE FOOD SECURITY.

On March 4th 2020, we will explore how Bluetech innovation in symbiosis with Agro- and Foodtech can provide a pathway for improved food security, while ensuring responsible circular production and consumption. The conference is co-organised together with Chr. Hansen, the most sustainable company in the world according to The World Economic Forum.
Co-organised with:
When it comes to sourcing of technologies, industries often look to industry-specific solutions. Instead, industries could benefit from a more holistic approach to the natural resources available, and interplay with other industries.
In agriculture, fermented seaweed can be used as a protein source that also increase nutrient absorption in animal feed. In aquaculture, alternative sources of fish meal can help alter the gut bacteria composition for, not only healthier fish but also waste produced, while drastically reducing the use of antibiotics. In foodtech, antioxidants extracted from seaweed can be used in food to prolong shelf life.

These are some of the synergies being examined in this edition of the Blue Tech Cluster conference.
