“The sea represents a huge resource of wealth (Aquaculture and Fisheries) and Renewable energy (Blue Energy). Harnessing the economic potential of this wealth in a sustainable way has been highlighted in the Commission's Blue Economy Strategy”

The Mediterranean Sea constitutes a cross road of continents and the main link among EU countries, Asia and Middle East, bearing a huge load of maritime activities that need to be monitored in an efficient way.

Blue Economy is aiming to inspire and help young entrepreneurs realize the innovative concepts relating to marine resources, introduce promising business opportunities, create new jobs, and transform traditional processes into more productive and sustainable activities.

Moreover, it enhances the dissemination and transferability of projects’ results, consequently ensuring a wider and deeper impact towards external stakeholders, contributing to the sustainable socio-economic development of the Mediterranean area through innovative investments.
