Over 1200 delegates from all over Europe came together for the 2016 European Maritime Day in Turku Finland, from 18-19 May, to discuss the marine and maritime agenda for Europe, in the context of "Investing in Blue Growth - smart and sustainable solutions."

“A sustainable marine economy is not a dream, it is a reality”, said Commissioner Karmenu Vella in the Opening Session of the conference. “Across Europe people are working hard on innovation and pushing boundaries”.

 

 

Within the conference some twenty workshops and five thematic sessions discussed a wide range of topics: innovation, smart specialisation and sustainable solutions for blue growth, potential and challenges of sectors like cruise tourism and ocean energy, clean shipping and environmental technologies, the role of ocean governance, Maritime Spatial Planning and multiple uses of space, the importance of data and knowledge, marine litter, the importance of digitalization and connectivity, and the role of business actors including SMEs and clusters.
