Innovation for the blue economy
The Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade ‘innovationXchange’ and CSIRO hosted an Innovation for the Blue Economy Workshop in August 2015. It assembled blue economy experts from around Australia to discuss challenges and barriers to economic growth in our oceans as well as uncover highly innovative ideas that promote sustainable development in the blue economy. The workshop focused on four major categories:
- harvesting of living resources
- extraction of non-living resources and generation of new resources
- commerce and trade in and around the ocean
- responses to ocean health challenges.
