The main aim of the Blue Growth project is to provide policy-makers at EU and sea basin level with a comprehensive, robust and consistent analysis of possible future policy options to support such smart, sustainable and inclusive growth from the oceans, seas and coasts.

The Blue Growth project thereto:

+ provides insight into the state of the art within maritime sectors;
+ presents knowledge of innovation and technological developments that influence these sectors;
+ creates an understanding of key external drivers that influence their potential;
+ identifies key economic areas for the future sustainable growth of oceans, seas and coasts; and
+ assesses the impacts of policy interventions that may contribute to reaping the existing potential.

The project was executed by Ecorys in partnership with Deltares and Océanique Développement from December 2010 to August 2012.
