Portuguese B-Blue partner ANI will organize a conference on interregional collaboration for blue growth, to be held on 14-15 December 2021 online.

This conference aims to stimulate innovation by transferring the results of WP3 and involving a wide spectrum of stakeholders from research to business.

On day 1, the focus will be of transferring knowledge by sharing the best practices collected in WP3. In order to do so, PPs should invite one stakeholder from each country to present a best practice, preferably covering the range of different BP categories & sectors, as well as aiming to have a mix between academia & research, industry and policy-makers.

In order to further foster interregional cooperation and highlight opportunities, day 2 will be focused around Blue Growth in S3 strategies, including a presentation of the novel Interregional Innovation Instrument, and a debate on opportunities for interregional cooperation. A second part of Day 2, also focused on interregional cooperation in the MED area, but also aiming to increase awareness and disseminate the B-BLUE project results, will share the experiences of the BBHubs as well as the matchmaking tool.

The conference will be organized as an online event, trying to reach a large audience from all the MED area, and especially from the PPs countries. Southern Shore APs join the event.
