Blue_Boost is co-financed by the Interreg ADRION Programme. It aims at enhancing the innovation potential of traditional and emerging Blue Growth sectors in the Adriatic-Ionian region.
The project focuses on transnational and cross-sectoral cooperation and innovation of maritime clusters through knowledge sharing and a community-based approach among 7 coastal regions in Albania, Croatia, Greece and Italy.
It addresses Micro and Small Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) through a set of combined actions aimed at facilitating encounters between them and research & innovation agents. This will be pursued by developing a coaching path tailored to the innovation needs of MSMEs, as well as by implementing an innovation voucher scheme and promoting transnational networking.
The CEI - Executive Secretariat is implementing the project pilot actions in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and leading the project communications (WPC).
