“Transition towards blue and green economies in the Mediterranean” marks Interreg Med Blue and Green Growth Communities’ three years anniversary, representing the end of their first implementation period and bridging to the upcoming one. After three years of reflections, technical analyses and pilots, multiple events and links with external key actors, both communities from Interreg Med’s innovation axis join forces to reflect on key common issues and spaces for more collaboration towards innovative sustainable growth in the Mediterranean.
During its first day, addressing the role of territorial cooperation for sustainable development, as well as business innovation, access to finance, education to sustainability, and policy-making for bluer and greener economies, this event aims to reflect on regional smart specialization strategies and on how sustainability is fostered though Mediterranean clusters. It is open to a wide variety of participants and will involve key stakeholders from the European Institutions, the private and finance sectors, the academia, NGOs and thematic community projects for a common dialogue.
During its second day, both communities present the opportunity to address inherent issues in a more sectoral way link to the blue economy on the one hand, and to the green economy on the other.
All conclusions from the discussions will be transferred to the whole of the communities in view of their respective next implementation phases, as to other stakeholders through events such as the Research & Innovation Days organized the following week, or the EU Open Days.
