Dear blue economy stakeholders,


DG MARE has identified smart specialisation strategies (S3) as a key tool to implement the Communication on Sustainable Blue Economy adopted in May 2021.  

Accordingly, in coordination with DG REGIO, DG MARE is setting up a smart specialization platform for sustainable blue economy and is organising a series of brokerage events to promote smart specialisation interregional partnerships and blue economy value chains.


These events will support matchmaking activities in order to:

  1. facilitate blue economy stakeholders’ networking and exchange
  2. promote the definition of stakeholders’ complementarities and synergies in terms of interregional value chains/partnerships
  3. support exchange of potential partnership ideas and expression of interest
  4. share best practices and lessons learned on S3 interregional partnerships set up and implementation


The brokerage event on FISHERY will take place on 1 July, 09:00 – 13:00 CET, in Brussels, at DG MARE premises.

Kind regards,

DG MARE, A3 team on Smart specialisation for sustainable blue economy
