Why Blue Growth?
Together with the Ghent University, GreenBridge has chosen to focus on Blue Growth (blue energy, aquaculture, marine biotechnology, deep sea mining, coastal eningeering), due to here unique location near the sea and the presence of academic knowledge on blue growth.
Currently already 3/4 of the marine / maritime research in Flanders is happening at Ghent University and will in the future, especially for the purpose of exploitation, be concentrated in Ostend.
