Bluetech Innovation Day June 15, 2023

Over 70% of our planet is covered with ocean. The oceans are a primary conduit for global trade and an important source of food. The oceans also store a quarter of emitted CO2. Bluetech includes a wide range of industries and is an essential part of creating a sustainable future.

Bluetech Innovation Day brings together leading members of the bluetech community to discuss the state of the industry, cutting-edge research, and the latest innovation and investment trends shaping the future of our oceans. Topics will include marine-AI, offshore wind, and more!

Join us in the Joyce Cummings Center on the Tufts University Medford campus to learn more about the blue economy in Massachusetts and beyond. Our event will feature panel discussions, conversations with investors, showcases from innovative companies in the industry, and networking with peers.
