Blue Growth is the long term strategy to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors as a whole. Seas and oceans are drivers for the European economy and have great potential for innovation and growth. It is the maritime contribution to achieving the goals of the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Specific activities are focused on areas such as ocean energy, maritime biotechnology or aquaculture for developing green, innovative, connected and inclusive ports.
