Opportunities and challenges for sustainable ocean innovation
Though ocean-related innovations have made significant progress, they continue to lack adequate visibility in a world where ESG has become a prominent strategic buzzword. How can we ensure sufficient funding for the blue economy through effective public-private partnerships, leveraging blue financing tools, exploring new investment vehicles, and making impact-driven investments? Moreover, what innovative financial tools or business models can address the existing funding gaps? Where can investors generate returns while simultaneously mitigating ocean damage? Lastly, how can we bridge crucial funding gaps as startups mature, thereby enhancing opportunities in the ocean sector and promoting its sustainable utilization?
Innovative Technologies and Policy Frameworks for Low-Carbon Ocean Solutions
We will delve into the significance of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere for the well-being of the oceans, and assess the various technology options available. We’ll also discuss the crucial policy support, investment, and innovation needed to expand the implementation of CDR. Moreover, we will thoroughly explore the oceans’ role in generating renewable energy and storing it in a sustainable manner.
Innovations in sustainable seafood production and marine biotechnology.
The advancement of technologies such as underwater image recognition, autonomous underwater vehicles, machine learning, satellites, and AI has significantly enhanced our ability to explore the oceans, monitor fishing activities, and enhance predictive fishing methods. Can we leverage existing tools and platforms to secure the future of seafood? With the escalating global demand for protein, coupled with stringent environmental regulations and the depletion of fisheries, how will traditional fishing practices and aquaculture adapt and evolve?
Charting the course to blue technology practices for a better future.
Innovation and new technologies are currently being developed to accelerate progress toward a sustainable ocean economy. While these are important, it is essential that existing industries adopt sustainable practices. This conference will bring together leaders from various key ocean industries, such as shipping, tourism, and many more, to demonstrate how they can and should positively impact ocean health by rethinking how they conduct business in the ocean.
The Blue Tech Summit IL.23 will feature a diverse group of thirty-plus Israeli startups, all developing innovative solutions to address the challenges of the Blue Economy. These startups are working on a wide range of technologies.
