BEL Lunch: Ocean City Bergen – Pioneering a sustainable Ocean
Ocean City Bergen is a collaboration between public and private actors within research, education competence and innovation with a focus on sustainable value creation linked to the sea in Western Norway.
The overall purpose is to take a leading global position as the ocean region, to contribute to sustainable development of the ocean industries in Western Norway and to ensure increased value creation and employment through the green shift.
The vision is pioneering a sustainable ocean, which will be achieved by promoting increased cooperation, attractiveness, sustainable growth, and competence in the ocean industries with the city of Bergen as a central driving force.
At the BEL-lunch you will learn about the implementation of the project and how we plan to ensure that it becomes one of the most important initiatives for the region in the years to come.
