About the BLUE ROUTE Project

The BLUEROUTE Project Preparing the new ocean economy 2030  is aligned with the main objective of the Blue Economy, targeting  a sustainable use of the oceans that reduces environmental risks and increases the quality of life (QoL) of coastal communities.

It is urgent to develop the capacity building of those populations with appropriate marine biodiversity management tools to achieve blue growth, ensure sustainability of fisheries and conservation of threatened species, and adaptation to global changes.

BLUE ROUTE is an inter-disciplinary initiative in marine science to promote networking, high-level thinking and critical 21st century skills in Doctorate professionals. To boost the Blue Economy, we rely on a hybrid (virtual, simulated, and hands-on) pedagogical design and experienced scholars to support a global network of learners.

The pedagogical approach favors student-active learning in a flipped classroom and stresses the value of face-to-face communication. Dealing with the global challenges brought about by the pandemic and climate change requires an unprecedented undertaking to advance and rebuild an equitable and sustainable ocean economy.
