Inspired by the Ocean, Driven by the Market, Powered by Knowledge, B2E works daily to establish the most valuable synergies between Academia and Industry, promoting economic and social value of those sectors of the blue bioeconomy, by developing products and services in a sustainable and innovation approach, and internationalizing national scientific and technological capacity and knowledge.
The blue bioeconomy will play a strategic role in meeting the future global challenges related to food supply, security and safety, as well as contributing to the sustainable development of relevant non-food applications as pharmaceutics, agriculture, energy, etc. According to the Blue Bioeconomy Roadmap for Portugal, due to our R&D capacity and privileged location, our country will be at the forefront of the Blue Bioeconomy in Europe by 2030, which will result in an increase of jobs offer in the area. B2E plays a crucial role on the development of this sector both at Portugal and at international levels, as it provides key services for the promotion of its segments with greatest growth potential.

Sustainable Development Goals
– By fostering and proving that aquaculture generates high quality, healthy and safe products and should be an integrated strategy of economic development, as it has the potential to contribute to overcome food supply needs in a sustainable way, helping to preserve maritime resources, while generating jobs.
– By promoting, stimulating and boosting an impactful fish production, with highly efficient animal feed options, making aquaculture processes more sustainable.
RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
- By encouraging consumers and companies towards eco-friendly products, waste reduction and recycling.
– By highlighting the importance of traceable and local seafood consumption, specifically aquaculture products.
– By emphasizing the need to consume marine origin products.
– By supporting national and international campaigns, projects and achievements aligned with these purposes.
By promoting research, testing innovative solutions and cooperating with national and international key players in global actions to fight climate changes.
LIFE BELOW WATER
By contributing to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources. Fostering a strategic management of wild marine species harvest, coupled with plans to deliver a more sustainable production operated under controlled conditions, is paramount for marine ecosystem health and services to be maintained. Consistency, security and quality of marine biomass supply for food or any other high-end use have to be balanced in ways that address environmental challenges and demands for sustainability. The fostering of biorefinery frameworks to secure the full valorisation of marine biological resources, strongly aligned with circular economy principles, must be based on well-defined research and innovation agendas with tangible goals.
PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
Cooperation is our way of life as well as creating mechanisms for companies to boost their products and services towards a more competitive national and international positioning. B2E believes this will be achieved through the establishment of valuable research-industry cooperation actions and synergies. Under this research-industry dynamic duo, B2E will bring dynamization and added value to diverse blue bioeconomy areas.
