Conference " Marine and maritime research: A driver of blue growth"

19 February 2014 – European Parliament

The SUBMARINER Network - flagship project of the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region - was presented in the Conference "Taking advantage of the blue growth potential in European coastal regions - How can marine and maritime research contribute to blue growth?", held on 19 February 2014 at the European Parliament.

This event looked at how research can unlock the blue growth potential of Europe. In particular, it showed how a better linking of research and industry can contribute to make the most out of the opportunities in the maritime economy. Innovative examples were presented from selected focus areas that have been identified as holding some of the highest blue growth potential.

Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP project partner invites to the conference:

"Management of dredged material and offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic Region”

Cross-border Dissemination Event II
11.12.2013
Gdańsk/ Poland

Port development is vital for economic development and transport. However, maintaining the parameters of waterways and basins is associated with the deepening and this creates certain problems, the most important is development of mined ore (sediment). Annually there is produced several million cubic meters of sediment, much of which is deposited on a specially selected locations (Dumping Sites) in the Baltic Sea area. This action is economically beneficial, but carried out in an irregular manner can be a real threat to the marine environment.

Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP project partner invites to the conference: Management of dredged material and offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic Region” Cross-border Dissemination Event II which will take place in Gdańsk, Poland on 11.12.2013.

During the conference preliminary results of the ECODUMP project (Application of ecosystem principles for the location and management of offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic region), will be presented. The project principal objective is to develop comprehensive guidelines for ecosystem methodology to choose where to deposit sediments in the Sea and management of offshore dumping sites in the south-eastern region of the Baltic Sea in the context of the risks reduction to the marine environment and improvement the quality use of marine resources.

The official conference language is English. Organizers provide simultaneous translation.
