Organized by the Interreg Med project InnoBlueGrowth, this capitalisation and community-building event will gather a wide diversity of stakeholders, from researchers to policy makers and donors from the blue economy sector of the Mediterranean region.
Indeed, to foster blue economy, the integration of science into policy and practice to support evidence-informed decision-making is essential. However, new technologies or innovative methodologies developed by researchers are not always widely and quickly transferred or fully exploited by all stakeholders. Therefore, clusters or collaborative platforms to bring investors, funders, industry, public sector and other stakeholders together represent opportunities to bridge science to policy and practices frameworks through the exchange of knowledge and data and the tackling of sea and land-based challenges jointly. This event aims to share and identify better methods and tools for successful knowledge and technology transfer, based on the outputs of the Med Blue Growth Community Projects. Part of the discussions will also address more thoroughly the issue of training and education for the blue economy.
Please find enclosed an invitation and a provisional agenda.
