The Blue Innovation Symposium

January 14 - 16, 2020 in Newport, Rhode Island

Organized by Salve Regina University and sponsored by the Consulate General of Canada in Boston

The Blue Innovation Symposium is the premier event in New England for connecting the marine technology industry for education, networking and facilitating partnering opportunities. Held for the first time in 2018 in Newport, Rhode Island, the theme for that year’s event was "The Ocean, Data and You". Each symposium will have a focus on data analytics and cybersecurity initiatives.

The symposium intends to bring together leading-edge marine technology companies for programming aimed at providing an overview of current trends in the industry, and a showcase of start-up companies to discuss their new technologies. As with previous years, we anticipate more than 200 attendees with more than 30 corporate sponsors.

The Blue Innovation Symposium is organized by Salve Regina's Office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education as part of our effort to connect the University with industry, organizations, state and federal agencies, and other key stakeholders in order to grow the region's economy.
