At the initial event, there were a number of presentations exploring the aims and actions of Blue-Action:


Setting the scene and the biggest framework for clustering in the Arctic region


Session 1: Clustering within the European Framework

Introduction on Clustering (WP6),Steffen Olsen (DMI)/Daniela Matei (MPI-M)


Session 2: Clustering on science and innovation and networking with projects on climate services, Arctic and Blue Growth


Session 3: Clustering on science and innovation, networking with other projects (Climate Services, Arctic, Blue Growth)
