            Editorial - 主办方言

            Combining socio-economic development and environmental protection is the objective of sustainable development policies. Nowadays, “Blue Growth” is an international challenge in the maritime world.

            The exploitation of marine resources (energy, minerals and food) is essential to global development, but such practices impact the marine environment, and more generally the climatic and biological balance of the planet.

            To find a balance between exploitation and preservation of the ocean is a very complex task. In July 2012, approximately twenty maritime regions involved in marine science and technology issues (Brest, Qingdao, San Diego, Kiel, Rimouski, Southampton, Porto…)
            created the Maritime Innovative Territories International Network (MiTiN). By the signature of the "Convention for Blue Growth", the MiTiN regions confirmed their support to a new and sustainable maritime economy.

            The "Innovation and Blue Growth" symposium, which will be held in Qingdao in China from the 28th to the 30th of October 2013 is one of the network's first international actions. Organized by Qingdao (China) and Brest (France) with the support and contributions of the MiTiN network, the symposium will bring together experts from the scientific, economic, private and public sectors. Through scientific advice and the analyses of technical, economic and regulatory conditions, stakes and perspectives will be highlighted for a better understanding of the ocean and a better valorization of its resources, especially the biological ones.

            Two topics will be discussed in two sessions: oceanography and marine bio-resources. Advances in oceanography research can give a better knowledge of the complexity of the physical, chemical and biological processes that govern the marine environment. Fundamental knowledge of the ocean will open the way to sustainable exploitation of marine bio-resources for food, energy or health-related challenges. In addition, technological sessions will be organized by private companies.

            We rely on your presence to animate the debates. As underlined by United Nations’ declaration, the emergence of a new, sustainable, maritime economy requires a strong cooperation between scientific, economic, public and private actors, at local and international levels. These are the objectives of the international MiTiN network and of this symposium.

             

            结合环境生态, 社会与经济三大要素一直是可持续性发展政策的主要目的。在海洋学领域中, « 蓝色发展 »一直是一个全球发展的要素与挑战。

            海洋的资源, 能源, 矿采与食物利用已经成一个全球性的发展要素。然而,目前海洋专家已经对沿海国家发出警告,特别是关于海上活动对海洋环境, 海洋生物与全球气候的影响。

            在海洋资源开发和环境保护之间寻求平衡是一项复杂的工作.2012年6月,约二十个海洋科技地区 (布雷斯特,青岛,圣地牙哥,基尔,瑞墓斯基,南安普顿, 波尔图…)建立了"创新性海洋地区国际网" (MiTiN)。 值此签署 « 蓝色发展公约 »之际,该国际网各成员地区均承诺为新型可持续发展的海洋经济提供支持。

            将于2013年10月28到30日在中国青岛举行,由青岛与布雷斯特组织,其他国际网成员地区赞助的“蓝色创新与发展”峰会是这个合作网络的最新活动之一。目的就是为了聚集国际上最优秀的科学,经济,政府专家来讨论这个主题。通过将学术建议,技术实践和经济政策条件相结合,更好的了解海洋,从而更好的开发海洋资源,特别是海洋生物资源。

            两大主题将分别在两个专场中进行讨论:海洋学和海洋生物资源。先进的海洋学研究可以使我们更好的了解掌控海洋环境的海洋物理,化学和生物进程的复杂状况。对海洋知识的深入了解将为海洋生物资源在食品,能源或健康方面的可持续开发打开大门。

            我们诚邀您的参与,并以此来丰富我们的研讨会。就像联合国声明中指出的:我们一定要联合地方与国际范围内的科学,经济,公共或私人参与者,只有通过这种紧密合作才能发展新型的,可持续的海洋经济。这也同样是MITIN国际网和此次峰会的目的。

            Session 1: oceanography and marine instrumentation

            Through exploration and observation of the Oceans, oceanography is the key for a better understanding of complex processes that regulate the Ocean life and resources. Scientists alert on the rapid degradation of the Ocean’ s health caused by Human pressures, with direct and indirect impacts on the Climate and bio-resources. Ocean health has important consequences on the socio-economic development of populations living along the coasts.

            Through an overview of research and development programs, projects and technologies, this session presented main challenges and expected responses of oceanography.

            • The first part (Tuesday 29 October 2013, 14.00 - 17.50) focused on “Global Oceanography”, a fundamental science for the understanding of the oceans and their evolutions.
            • The second part (Wednesday 30 October 2013, 08.00 - 11.40) focused on “Coastal Oceanography”, the basis of sustainable development policies of coastal zones, which concentrate the maritime economy and marine life.

            From observation and modeling capacities, and recommendations regarding ocean protection and sustainable exploitation, the presentations demonstrated the strong need to link global and coastal oceanography, and science and public policies.

            Part 1: global oceanography

            Knowledge of the oceans is one of the main challenges of the Century. This requires improving observation means and strengthening international, scientific and technical cooperation. Through an overview of current programs, the presentations introduced key techniques and most advanced models, which enable understanding the oceans and their role on climatic and biological balance. These analyses opened the discussion on further development.

            Coastal zones are fragile and precious areas, which concentrate a rich marine biodiversity and a large ratio of human population, and offer a flourishing economy. Advances in coastal oceanography were made these past 50 years in order to understand the physical and bio-chemical processes occurring in coastal areas, and to forecast their evolution. In the second part of the session 1 were presented the main advances and challenges of operational coastal oceanography: observation, modeling and forecast. This knowledge can help reducing the consequences of natural hazards (typhoons, tsunamis, erosion, storm surges, sea level rise...) and the degradation of marine environment. Current programs and core techniques were the basis of the discussion on the state of the art and future works. Core analysis also highlighted the links between coastal and global oceanography, bio and physical science, and science and public policies.

            Session 2: marine bio-resources

            The richness of the ocean biodiversity opens new valorization opportunities. It is thus a key sector of the «Blue» economy. However, the question of sustainable exploitation and degradation of ocean bio-resources needs to be raised. Through exchanges between companies, research centers and public authorities, the session 2 covered three main areas: sea farming, marine biotechnologies and seaweed exploitation, which are among the most promising fields in the context of global challenges such as food, health, biodiversity or environment. 

            • The first part (Tuesday 29 October 2013, 14.00 – 17.30) focused on sea farming and marine biotechnologies.
            • The second part (Wednesday 30 October, 08.00 – 11.40) pursued the analysis on seaweed valorization, a growing domain of marine biotechnologies.

            Part 1: Sea farming and marine biotechnologies

            Moderator:
            Pr. Mohamed JEBBAR, Vice-Director, LM2E, IUEM/UBO, France.

            This session part 1 provided an overview of scientific and industrial projects carried out on sea farming and marine biotechnologies. Sea farming appears as a partial reply to fish stocks decrease. However,  current practices and techniques have severe impacts on the environment and the biodiversity. New techniques used to limit these consequences were presented, especially by organizations from China, where sea farming is part of traditions. Sea farming is only one aspect of the exploitation of marine organisms. Scientific and economic interests in marine bio-molecules were also depicted through this session.

            Seaweed exploitation is a promising domain of the «Blue» economy. Through an overview of research and development areas and projects, the presentations of companies and research centers set out the scientific and economic perspectives regarding seaweed exploitation. This session thus addressed the whole chain, from detection and prediction of biomass, to culture and harvest of «natural» algae, up to the various valorization axes and their economic added value. Various experiences carried out in Brittany (France), at Rimouski (Québec, Canada), Qingdao (China) and Taiwan were presented. They concern applications of algae based-products  in medicine, human and animal health and food, agriculture, aquaculture, bio-materials, bio-fuels…The particular situation in Qingdao was also introduced, with analysis of the economic value of seaweed and modeling results on the variations of biomass to prevent green tides.
