BlueBRIDGE were invited to contribute to the Blue Growth Research and Innovation event that took place in Brussels on November 17th 2017.
The event was a good opportunity to have a clear overview of the wide cross-sectorial and interdisciplinary marine, maritime and aquatic research and innovation in Horizon 2020, and its relevance of EU policies, the Bioeconomy and the Blue Economy.
Donatella Castelli, CNR-ISTI and BlueBRIDGE Project Coordinator, contributed to the event as part of the sub session that showcased project portfolios on marine data and digitisation technologies applied to the marine and maritime sector and also affecting aquaculture and fisheries, followed by a discussion on their uptake by a panel of users. 
All details about the event are described on the European Commission's website
