The newly adopted Global Biodiversity Framework acknowledges the need to increase finance to protect and restore nature. Similarly, to bring back a healthy Baltic Sea, financing harmful activities must stop, and funds and resources for biodiversity need to be mobilized. Today funding for biodiversity largely comes from governments and public funds, but to halt and reverse the loss of biodiversity both financial actors and business must help close the finance gap for biodiversity.

This session will start off by looking at current financial flows into the Baltic Sea maritime economy and then discuss what is needed to incentivize investments in sustainable practices and a shift away from business as usual. We will also explore what role financial actors and businesses can play in helping protect and restore the Baltic Sea, and how science can help enable mobilizing finance for biodiversity.

  • BSSC Technology Workshop
    Friday, 25 August, 8:30-10:30
    Conveners: Regine Labrenz (IOW), Jari Haapala (FMI)

As part of the Baltic Sea Science Conference, we will organise again a half-day technology workshop. The workshop aims to provide a platform for communication on technological innovation or new applications in marine research.
This year the focus is supposed to lie on automatic ocean and sea ice measurement systems and sensors in major infrastructure projects. Aim of the workshop is to bring together marine research infrastructure developers, ocean instruments manufactures and marine database developers to share and discuss needs, possibilities and prospects of real time monitoring of the Baltic Sea.

Experts of the Baltic Sea Science community will give an overview of the latest upcoming trends and applications concerning data acquisition, analysis and processing. Suppliers or manufacturers can take the chance to present their latest developments/innovative instruments for marine applications, research or monitoring to an audience of experts of marine science and the associated technologies.

The workshop will offer the unique opportunity for discussions between scientists as well as users and developers and can establish new international cooperation all over the Baltic Sea Region and widen the marketplace for highly innovative and professional technologies.
