Welcome to

1:1 virtual meetings to match supply with demand for technology and business within the blue economy

19-20 November 2020 

B2Blue - Business to Blue is a brokerage event focussing on the blue economy and aiming to encourage new business and technological partnerships between companies, clusters, research centres, agencies and universities. B2Blue takes place in the framework of Sealogy® and is organised by ART-ER together with the partners of the Enterprise Europe Network's SIMPLER Consortium. B2Blue is one of the matchmaking events promoted by MISTRAL, an Interreg MED programme, aiming to strengthen international cooperation within the blue growth ecosystem and to increase the networking capabilities of innovation actors in the Med area.


B2Blue will explore technological and business solutions that respond to the Mediterranean blue economy drivers identified in MISTRAL’s “Blue Growth Book”, a report on well-established and emerging sectors relevant to the blue economy in terms of innovation capacity and potential of future investment.
