The blue bioeconomy offers companies many opportunities to take the step towards a more sustainable Flemish economy. Various sectors, such as food, agriculture, chemicals, textiles and pharmaceuticals, are strongly committed to this. Nevertheless, the blue bioeconomy faces many (regional) challenges.

During the Blue Bio Bootcamps you will meet experts in various domains and get acquainted with other companies in the sector. You also have the opportunity to get together with coaches and mentors who are happy to help you further develop your business idea.

Atlantic Bootcamp

During the Blue Bio Bootcamp on 2 July, the focus will be on the regional challenges faced by blue bio producers in Belgium, France and Portugal. In a hybrid setting, you will interact with Flemish, French and Portuguese start-ups and mentors.

The main challenge for Belgian companies in the sector is scaling up activities to meet demand. Integrating side streams from other industries into the production of aquaculture biomass may be one of the solutions.

You will also hear about the challenges and support options in France and Portugal, and you will have the opportunity to pitch your start-up at an international level.

The detailed programme will be announced in due time.
