DEEP Baltic Sea Challenge aims to create new blue business
DEEP, a two-track challenge to protect and develop the Baltic Sea will gather students, entrepreneurs, and other innovators to solve a sustainability challenge: how to create sustainable business from the Baltic Sea. The challenge will culminate in a weekend-long final at Allas Sea Pool in Helsinki, 9–11 February.
Jointly organised by Luke-coordinated BlueNordic project, Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), Finnish Water Forum, Allas Sea Pool, and Helsinki Think Company, DEEP has two focus areas:
- Solutions for a cleaner Baltic Sea
- New food and non-food products from fish, algae and aquatic plants.
In addition, there is a policy challenge to develop or reform policies to create better opportunities for sustainable business.
The winners of the challenge will receive a monetary prize and an opportunity to further develop their idea to a business concept in Helsinki Think Company’s accelerator program. The best ideas from the policy track will be presented to political decision-makers on local and/or national level.
