Discuss Ways towards a Sustainable Baltic Sea Aquaculture at the Åland Aquaculture Week, 9–12 October 2012
Join the Åland Aquaculture Week to discuss ways towards a sustainable development of the Baltic Sea aquaculture! The event is a collaboration between the projects Aquabest and SUBMARINER and part of a series of SUBMARINER Cooperation Events. It shall offer a platform for cooperation and networking among different stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region‘s aquaculture industry, such as policy makers, feed manufacturers, fish and mussel farmers. While the first two days will concentrate on sustainable fish feed, the second part of the Åland Aquaculture Week will be dedicated to the potential and prerequisites of mussel farming in the Baltic Sea Region.

New publication: Innovative marine Uses at a Glimpse
SUBMARINER is proud to annouce the release of its 12 page bulletin "Innovative Marine Uses at a Glimpse". The publication gives a short overview on the possible innovative uses of Baltic marine resources that the project is currently disussing and analysing. Click here to download the bulletin as a PDF file. In its upcoming compendium, SUBMARINER will publish a more detailed inventory of current and potential future marine uses and recommendations for the further promotion of beneficial uses. The compendium is expected to be published in fall 2012.
SUBMARINER presented at Annual Forum on the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region
SUBMARINER presented itself with an own stand in the Networking Village of this year's Annual Forum on the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Copenhagen on 18 and 19 June 2012. Carla Montesi, director at DG Mare for the Baltic and North Sea, visited the stand and discussed possibilities of SUBMARINER to present its results in Brussels as a contribution to the Commission's Blue Growth initiative. With a view to the upcoming revision of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, discussions with various stakeholders from around the Baltic Sea Region showed that a future SUBMARINER network could contribute a lot to the updated action plan which is expected to be ready by the end of 2012 / the beginning of 2013.
Wave Generator developed in SUBMARINER Awarded first prize in innovation contest
Within the SUBMARINER project, Klaipeda University Coastal Research and Planning Institute (CORPI) has developed a prototype for generating energy from waves. The linear generator – an essential part of the prototype – has now been awarded the first prize in the “engines” category in an innovation contest at the 2012 BALTTECHNIKA exhibition in Vilnius. The wave energy device prototype has been designed to meet the specific conditions of the Baltic Sea – occasional harsh storms and relatively low energy in a yearly run. The further development is concentrated on minimising the investment costs and maximising the generator’s efficiency. Click here to read more and to watch a video about the wave generator.
More than 150 Blue Biotech Expert gathered at SUBMARINER cooperation Event in Kiel
The SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event brought together more than 150 Blue Biotech experts from research institutions, private companies and public authorities. They met in Kiel, Germany on 9 and 10 May to discuss new strategies and future perspectives of Blue Biotechnology for the Baltic Sea Region. The commercial use of marine organisms holds enormous potential in a wide range of applications. This was shown by the presentations which did not only give country overviews from the Baltic Sea Region countries, but also highlighted specific research projects and commercial applications in the fields of genetics, food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Impressions from the event and presentations can be found here. As a follow-up, SUBMARINER is also producing a Blue Biotechnology Magazine with summaries of the event and articles by the conference speakers.
