Webinar: It's time for the Blue Economy! Initiatives developed in the Mediterranean Region (15 Sept. 2020 10:00 a.m. CET)

To harness the endless opportunities for economic and social growth offered by the Mediterranean Sea, a number of challenges must be urgently addressed, including the current global crisis which, if properly handled, can turn into a unique opportunity. Innovation, sustainability, blue growth and transnational cooperation have to become the keywords steering the development of the MED Region over the next decade.

This webinar will focus on "blue" projects and initiatives that can contribute to the sustainable development of the MED area.

Raffaele Mancini (Blue Economy Expert) will present opportunities and challenges linked to the sustainable development of marine and maritime sectors in the Mediterranean region on the basis of the experience gained and the lessons learnt in the framework of 4helix+ project.

Anna Escoda (ASCAME) will look at the Mediterranean blue economy transition paying special attention to the role of blue SMEs.

Finally, Leonardo Manzari (WestMED - Italy National Hub) will present on-going and planned maritime initiatives to support innovation and sustainability in a stronger co-operation among blue SMEs of both sides of the Western Mediterranean.
