Dragons’ den - Four innovators meeting with four dragons

The seminar “Welcome to Dragons’ Den! Pitching ideas for a Clean Baltic Sea” organised by PA Nutri and NutriTrade flagship on 5 June 2018 addressed eutrophication from three different angles:

What is the current state of Baltic Sea ecosystems?

What kind of progress and innovations have been made in the current programme period?

Can these innovations be widely applied, and what difference would they make?

The pitchers defended their innovations on advanced waste water treatment, creating consumer guides, developing manure standards and applying gypsum at fields and took note of the sharp but constructive observations of the dragons.
