Maryland Blue Tech Sector On Full Display At European Water Technology Week

With the Atlantic Ocean at our doorstep, and the mighty Chesapeake Bay running through our heart, it’s no wonder Maryland is a leader in innovation, implementation, and manufacturing in advanced technologies related to water, also known as “blue tech.”

The Maryland Department of Commerce is leading a delegation of blue tech companies to European Water Technology Week, taking place in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, Sept. 19-22. Leeuwarden may be known as “The Capital of Water Technology,” but with more than 7,700 miles of coastline—enough to stretch from Baltimore to Leeuwarden and back—the Maryland team will certainly have some new ideas and established principles to share.

And what an opportunity to shine a light on blue tech, one of Maryland’s emerging industries. European Water Technology Week will bring together more than 1,000 participants representing 38 countries, and five Maryland companies will participate in spreading the Maryland message. Blue Sources of Frederick ; GaiaXus from Bethesda ; Innovatreat of Owings Mills ; and Early Charm Ventures  and Tetrahedron, Inc. from Baltimore  represent the diversity of Maryland’s blue tech infrastructure. Learn more about this week’s event.
