OFCORES helped organise BlueInvest Day 2021, a significant virtual event enabled by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to boost innovation and investment in sustainable technologies for the Blue Economy.

From a pop-up TV studio in Brussels with live hosts, the event was broadcasted to over 1000 online participants throughout Europe. Attendees followed 3 expert panels comprised of high-level European Commission representatives, captains of industry and impact investors. Additionally, 20 top SMEs from the BlueInvest Community delivered live pitches for their innovative solutions to a panel of investors. A virtual ceremony followed, where BlueInvest Awards were conferred on the winners within each pitch category, as well as on the People’s Choice winner selected by the online audience.
