Blue innovation is growing fast and will contribute significantly to the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while building a new promising economic sector. The Blue Innovation Awards are an initiative of Blue Cluster to give exposure to promising projects, products and services of companies, consortia and government institutions within the blue economy. They were launched successfully during the G-STIC 2020 conference in Brussels. For the second edition of the Blue Innovation Awards, the G-STIC 2021 programme at Dubai2020 offers a unique opportunity to be part of an international setting and network focussing on sustainability and technology.
Complete the registration form below to enter a project, product or service by Friday 25 June at the latest. If your project, product or service meets the entry criteria, you will be invited to deliver a short online presentation for a heterogenous jury (representatives from VLAIO, Blue Cluster, Maritime Campus Antwerp and Bluebridge-Ostend Science Park) on 8 or 9 July 2021. These presentations will serve as the basis for the selection of two nominees for each award category. The winners will be announced during G-STIC 2021 on 25 October 2021 in Dubai. If your innovation proposal is accepted, you will be informed of this no later than 16 July. Further information regarding practicalities will be communicated in due time.
