The goal of this seminar is to strengthen the supply chain for blue energy in Europe. We highlight opportunities and solutions from several perspectives, including materials, development, design and manufacturing. This will open up for possibilities of new collaborations and strengthen the supply chains.

International speakers will also highlight the state of the art and demonstrate ways to overcome the specific challenges of wave, tidal and floating offshore wind energy.

Take the opportunity to meet companies from five clusters collaborating in the ELBE project. There will be B2B meetings arranged and hosted by Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) with a possibility to network with key players from the Swedish offshore energy scene.
