The Blue Economy High-Tech 4 the Black Sea is a significant research-based Black Sea forum on ocean digitalization and Industry 4.0 that brings together academia, research organizations, investors, industry, and society at large under the umbrella of the H2020-funded BRIDGES BS.

It aims to provide a meeting point for industry and research to generate and incubate ideas for future blue economy innovative services, potentially across the various relevant economic activities for the Black Sea.

The first edition of the High-Tech Summit for the Black Sea will stand in Varna (Bulgaria) on 27 and 28 September 2022. It is organized to create a supportive environment for companies, start-ups, organizations, and universities to exchange, present and discuss their latest technological developments, debate the most recent discoveries, participate in matchmaking events, and generate business ideas.
