“Supporting Blue Growth with innovative applications based on EU e-infrastructures” was the motto of the final event of the BlueBRIDGE project, held on 14-15 February 2018 with participation of over 50 stakeholders, including policy makers, marine and maritime data practitioners, representatives from research institutions, international organisations, governments and EU-funded initiatives.

The main mission of BlueBRIDGE is the exploitation of data e-infrastructures to facilitate communities of scientists, data practitioners, SME innovators and educators from various domains to address Blue Growth challenges related to the knowledge production chain. The major barriers that these communities currently encounter are related to i) the difficulty of accessing heterogeneous data that are spread through multiple remote sources and ii) the complexity of the technologies available to process these data. The barriers make a data-centred research process quite slow, if not impossible to pursue.
The solutions developed by BlueBRIDGE aim at removing these barriers.
