On December 18 and 19, 2019, more than 35 experts gathered at the headquarters of ENEA (Italian National Agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable economic development) in Rome, to celebrate Blue Deal's kick off meeting. A meeting in which the entities participating were given the opportunity to organize upcoming activities, coordinate work, and establish the objectives of this ambitious project.
Blue Deal is an Interreg Mediterranean program, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and based on the capitalization of Blue Energy (BE). The project aims to increase transnational activity of innovative clusters and networks of the BE sector, develop links and synergies between Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs), public authorities, knowledge institutions and civil society, and establish transnational and regional Blue Deal Alliances.
With a budget of 2,8 million euros and 32 months of work ahead, Blue Deal integrates 13 partners from 7 countries and 9 different regions around the Mediterranean (including the Cyprus Energy Agency), who will create a favorable environment for BE investments and sustainable actions in the Mediterranean economy.
