To be held <u>on 28 September 2018</u>, 15-18h, at ARIES Venezia Giulia, Piazza della Borsa 14, Trieste.</li> <li><strong>Boatbuilding </strong>- construction, maintenance and refitting of boats with introduction of environmentally-friendly building materials and technological solutions aimed at reducing the environmental impact and/or improving the performance. To be held <u>on 3 October 2018</u>, 10–13h, at Marina Lepanto, Via Consiglio d'Europa, Monfalcone (GO).</li> <li><strong>Maritime transport</strong> - inter-regional transport services (short or medium-haul) and means of transport of goods and passengers with high environmental sustainability. To be held <u>on 3 October 2018</u>, 14:30–17:30h, at Marina Lepanto, Via Consiglio d'Europa, Monfalcone (GO).</li> </ul><p>Blue labs represents the first step of the BLUE_BOOST coaching path, where MSMEs will discuss and identify their innovation challenges. Afterwards - through <em>Blue workshop scenarios</em> (step 2) and a <em>Hackathon</em> (step 3) that will follow – they will have the chance to find suitable Knowledge Providers (RD&amp;I bodies and “new innovation agents” like fablabs, innovation hubs, living labs, etc.) to jointly address pre-identified challenges in an international environment. To this aim, the BLUE_BOOST transnational <em>Call for innovation vouchers</em> will offer small grants (9.000 EUR) for Blue MSMEs/start-ups to co-develop innovation projects with Knowledge Providers.</p> <p>The project also foresees transnational cross-field visits throughout its duration.</p> <p>Blue labs are organised by the Central European Initiative, in cooperation with National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS), ARIES and Mare FVG.</p> <p>In order to apply, please, fill in the attached form and send it to Mr. Alessandro Lombardo (<u><a href="mailto:lombardo@cei.int">lombardo@cei.int</a></u>) and Ms. Ana Aligrudic (<u><a href="mailto:aligrudic@cei.int">aligrudic@cei.int</a></u>). Please, indicate the Blue lab you wish to attend, bearing in mind that you may participate in one, two or all of them.</p> <p>More information available <a href="http://www.laboratoriblu.it/">HERE</a>.</p> <hr /><p><em>BLUE_BOOST is funded under the Interreg ADRION Programme. It aims at stimulating, coaching and funding innovation within traditional and emerging Blue Economy sectors in the Adriatic-Ionian region. It is intended to enhance territorial cohesion among 7 ADRION maritime regions of Italy, Croatia, Albania and Greece, and to boost quadruple-helix potential through an open source, knowledge sharing, and community-based approach, resulting from cooperation between MSMEs, new innovation agents and RD&amp;I bodies.</em></p> <p> </p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-download field--type-file
