BIS Bremerhavener Gesellschaft für Investitionsförderung und Stadtentwicklung mbH (the Bremerhaven Economic Development Company Ltd.) is the key contact for all companies in the city, for potential domestic investors and for start-ups that see a future for themselves in Bremerhaven. One-stop service provision is the aim.
Due to the fact that Bremen is an important container port, logistics and distribution in addition to new maritime technologies, such as off-shore wind power plants are in the foreground. In one of the largest centres of fish and food industry in Europe, the BIS also wants to combine current production methods and products with cutting-edge trends such as blue biotechnology. The companies in the city can draw on highly specialised and prestigious academic institutions such as the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research and various institutes of the university.
In order to achieve the goal of increasing and developing investments in the state of Bremen, the BIS is active in the following fields:
As the Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, the Alfred Wegener Institute is primarily active in the cold and temperate regions of the world. Working together with numerous national and international partners, we are actively involved in unravelling the complex processes at work in the “Earth System”. Our planet is undergoing fundamental climate change; the polar regions and the oceans, which play central roles in the global climate system, are in flux. How will planet Earth evolve? Do the phenomena we’re observing represent short-term fluctuations or long-term trends? Polar and marine research has always been a fascinating scientific challenge; today it is also research into the future.
AWI is the organizer of SeaStrains Workshop:
The workshop will address the need for transparent and efficient knowledge transfer between the seaweed sector stakeholders, and will discuss most effective communication streams for informing the public of the economic, societal and ecological services which can be provided by seaweeds.
