The BlueForum is an initiative of MARIN to promote the smart and sustainable use of environment in the maritime sector, from energy to transport. The main objective is to bring together the actors that will enable an efficient implementation of the energy transition. Those actors are the industry, the research institutes and universities, the authorities. In order to reach such goal, we propose a serie of presentations on ongoing innovations and projects and we provide a open platform (the Forum) to pitch new Joint Industry Project (JIP) Initiatives. Those pitches will hopefully allow the start of such collaborative projects, where participants can join force in research & development at pre-competitive level.
The themes developed in the forum are:
- Renewable Ocean Energy (tidal, waves, floating wind, floating solar)
- Blue Life (use of the ocean for sustainable farming, fishing, biomass production, ocean life protection, sustainable human activities at sea)
- Natural Propulsion technologies (use of environmental forces such as wind, solar, water),
- Zero Emission transport and shipping.
