Abstract The event is dedicated to the theme of marine litter and microplastics and their effects on organisms and water.
Language Italian Croatian simultaneous interpretation
Chairman: Diego SANTALIANA – Technology Park of Pordenone SCPA
Context: Since the Smart port solutions demand unilateral and joint approach, the project ECOMAP is organizing a 2 days workshops on exchange of expertises regarding Blue Growth sectors within Sealogy fair (19th-20th November 2020, Ferrara, Italy).
It is a trend of technological innovation that has the potential to redefine the cross-border relationship, management and commercial dynamics and accelerate the continuous movement of products and services and potentially
create a global collaborative environment. The event will bring together Italian and Croatian stakeholders working in different sectors of the blue economy, with aim to establish contacts, share best practices solutions and set up the innovation cluster that would support the development of business ideas and opportunities.
This exchange of good practices:
- will help outlining the topics to be inserted in the Memorandum of the Cluster of Port Cities to be developed;
- will help identify potential stakeholders of the Interreg Italy-Croatia’s eligible area to be interviewed and asked to join to /cooperate with the Cluster of Port Cities to be developed;
Clusters are complex systems and they have to ensure:
- the coherence of strategic objectives;
- the strength of coordinated actions.
