SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Perspectives now available

blue_bio_perspectives_photo_303x148Can the Baltic Sea Region be a model region for Blue Biotechnology? And which steps have to be taken to further strengthen the region's competetitiveness in this field? These were some of the leading questions that were discussed at the SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event in Kiel, Germany in May 2012.
The perspectives from this Cooperation Event have now been assembled in our latest publication: "Blue Biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region: New Strategies and Future Perspectives". The contributions are based on the presentations held at the SUBMARINER Blue Biotechnology Cooperation Event. They form an important input to the policy recommendations for furthering beneficial marine uses that the SUBMARINER project is currently developing.
