What are the main data management challenges for the blue growth sector? Can research support businesses? All the answers in our survey report


BlueBRIDGE aims to deliver tailor made data management services to different communities (aquaculture, ecosystem approach to fisheries and education) and stakeholders (international organisations, research centres, enterprises, etc). What are the challenges faced by these communities in the field of data management? Is there a demand for the services designed by BlueBRIDGE? Are there any gaps in the market of data management services for the marine and aquaculture sector that BlueBRIDGE can fill? Can the BlueBRIDGE innovative technologies support education? We have asked these questions to the members of the French Business and Sea Innovation Cluster, the Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique, through an online survey.

Over 200 responses have been collected and today we would like to share the results with you!
