In the framework of INTERREG ADRION project BLUE_BOOST, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) active in traditional and emerging sectors of Blue Economy in Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region are invited to join the 1st Blue Scenario Workshop focused on Innovative Solutions and Materials for Boatbuilding.

The workshop - organised in cooperation by ARIES, MARE Technology Cluster FVG and the CEI-Executive Secretariat - is taking place on Friday, 15 February 2019, from 14-16:30h, at the headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce of Venezia Giulia (Sala Desiata, CCIA Venezia Giulia, Piazza della Borsa 14, Trieste).

The workshop will focus on new frontiers, materials and innovative coatings for surfaces, with the support of expert speakers representing both innovative companies and academic/research stakeholders (Politecnico Milano, National Research Council of Italy - CNR).     

This Workshop - along with two other workshops focusing on the topics of maritime transport and coastal protection, to be held in February 2019 - is part of the BLUE_BOOST coaching path, where “Blue” MSMEs have the chance to identify, discuss and address specific innovation challenges in their business sector. Moreover, they will be presented with further possibilities offered by BLUE_BOOST, in particular a transnational Call for innovation vouchers that will allow for co-developing innovation projects with Innovators and Knowledge Providers. More information about this Call will be presented during the Scenario Workshop.

In order to be part of this event, please send an e-mail by 14 February to:

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&I bodies.
