Brussels Hybrid Event: Digital Blue Economy meets Gaia-X

Liberal perspectives on Europe’s Blue Economy

What happens when Europe's Digital Bue Economy meets Gaia-X

Europe’s oceans are our most vital blue ecosystem that provide food security, employment opportunities, and clean energy. To bring the untapped potential from the sea to the surface a big data project based on Gaia-X has been launched in January 2022: Marispace-X aims to establish a maritime data ecosystem that allows stakeholders from business, science, public authorities and NGOs to securely manage, share and analyze data acquired about and from the ocean based on European standards and values. Use cases include offshore-wind management, biological climate protection and accelerating vital ammunition clearing. It is the largest industry-driven digitization project of its kind and is expected to make a significant contribution to the development of the maritime data economy and value creation in Europe.

At this hybrid event, organized by the FDP’s Extraterritorial Group in Brussels, the topic will be examined from economic, political as well as European perspective.

Keynotes will be delivered by three distinguished speakers:

  • Léa Bodossian, Secretary General and Executive Director at EuroGeographics

The keynotes will be followed by an open discussion and Q&A session.

The whole event is moderated by Frank Hoffmeister and kindly hosted by the FDP European Group in Brussels.
