Innovations for the Blue Planet 2024

Welcome to the International Conference Innovations for the Blue Planet to be held from 23 to 25 April 2024 in Stockholm.

Water is a fundamental part of our planet, integral in its climate and weather conditions, and plays essential roles in society, human health and welfare, the functioning and health of ecosystems, and most of the Sustainable Development Goals. However, our progress on water-related goals and targets remains alarmingly off track, jeopardising the sustainable development agenda.

The BluePlanet2024 conference aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines and other relevant societal actors to jointly discuss and explore the latest findings on processes, methods, and technologies for innovative solutions in a Water-Wise World. The purpose will be to connect multidisciplinary groups to debate key open water science questions.

This will be a 3-day conference, with two days dedicated to keynote presentations, plenary, poster sessions, exhibition and panel discussion, and one day dedicated to field trips. The field trips will be to Stockholm locations showcasing the importance and key roles of water in our societies. For the latter, participants can choose between three alternatives: Sjöstadsverket Water Innovation Centre, Djurö Marine Field Station, and the Utö initiative. The first two conference days will address the four main topics, with half a day dedicated to each topic:

  • Water and society
  • Water, blue food production, climate nexus 
  • Circularity in water management 
  • Digitalization in the water sector 

The conference is organized and sponsored by WaterCentre@KTH together with Blue Food – Centre for Future Seafood and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA) with support from the KTH Digitalisation platform.
