The EU Blue Growth Strategy

Blue Growth is the long term strategy to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors as a whole. Seas and oceans are drivers for the European economy and have great potential for innovation and growth. It is the maritime contribution to achieving the goals of the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.


Blue-Action opens matchmaking dialogue between the users of the project modelling data, their analyses and the core scientific groups with the goal of strengthening the competitiveness and growth of businesses which need climate and weather data or analysis for enhancing their existing core business activities that rely on improved forecasting capacity. A focus of Blue-Action is on providing knowledge and security in the blue economy, focussing on marine knowledge, to improve access to information about the sea and maritime spatial planning, to ensure efficient and sustainable management of activities at sea.

Specifically, some of our case studies are direclty linked to the implementation of the Blue Growth Strategy:
