About us

BlueGen is a French non-profit organization created in 2016 in order to establish the first international trans-sectoral platform for blue business, employment and education.

Despite its enormous potential to our global economy, the concept of blue economy remains vague and unknown to key stakeholders such as investors, bankers, consumers, politicians, media, and, most importantly, the future generations which will inevitably have to take the lead in the years to come.

In light of this reality, BlueGen has four main objectives:

Raise awareness about the diversity of blue careers, education programmes, as well as the benefits of the blue economy

Showcase the blue industry’s most innovative products and services

Support ‘blue’ university networks and multidisciplinary centers of excellence

Strengthen employability by ensuring that education programmes correspond with industry needs.

BlueGen will be the entity organizing the BlueGen events (see below) and the BioMarine Business Convention

Once a year, BlueGen in collaboration with the BioMarine© Business Convention will organize MyBlueCity©, an immersive platform which will be composed of:

  • Interactive panels to learn about blue growth challenges
  • Discover the potential of the blue economy while walking through eleven thematic districts
  • Interactive demos to present your innovative products and services as well as to bolster awareness about the blue economy
  • Customized professional tours to enhance experience
  • Agora to discuss with blue growth actors on current issues
  • Workshops to help promote youth employment and university cooperation

This is a smaller version of MyBlueCity with only two or three districts and without the BioMarine Business Convention. Multiple showrooms will occur every year in different European cities. A demo can run throughout the year and finish with the MyBlueCity event of that year.

  • Smaller version of MyBlueCity with 2-3 districts
  • Present your local blue economy assets
