The Blue Economy needs innovative solutions to address pressing challenges that threaten our oceans such as overfishing, pollution, and the effects of climate change. Earlier this month, Innovayt attended the annual event organised by the Blue Bio Value Accelerator programme, supporting start-ups developing sustainable blue biotechnology. The event inspired us to give an overview on the EU Sustainable Blue Economy and outline the main EU funding opportunities for the sector.

Meet experienced Innovation Consultants at our stand (218), learn how to successfully combine hard (VC) and soft (grant) funding opportunities at our session (October 26, 13:00-14:15, Start-up SQUARE Stage), or find us in the crowd. See you there!
