EMPORIA4KT International Bootcamp to boost innovation in the Atlantic Area
Experts will gather to evaluate the main transnational needs and opportunities in specific areas of Blue Economy
The EMPORIA4KT International Bootcamp “Blue Economy in the Atlantic Area - the role of Academia, Industry and Policy Stakeholders for fostering innovation in the Atlantic Area” will take place on 12 December in Brussels, Belgium. This event aims to bring together expert stakeholders to evaluate the main needs and opportunities in specific areas of Blue Economy.
The International Bootcamp was preceded by national bootcamps held in each of the aforementioned countries, where experts discussed the Blue Economy in their respective regions. Twenty of these experts, alongside EU representatives, will now meet in Brussels to exchange their ideas in relation to the Atlantic Area as a whole.
The Blue Economy represents all economic activities related to oceans, seas and coastal areas and includes industries such as fishing, shipbuilding, tourism and ocean energy. This growing sector is hugely important to Europe, and currently provides jobs for nearly 3.5 million people. However, investments in innovation are needed to create new business opportunities and foster sustainable management of ocean and sea resources.
EMPORIA4KT is an Interreg Atlantic Area project working to forge links between the triple helix players of academia, business and government, to foster innovation and competitiveness in support of the Blue Economy in the Atlantic Area. This Bootcamp is one of the project’s tailored activities to support these aims. The project is coordinated by Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia and gathers 14 partners from 5 countries with an overall budget of approximately €2.2 million, from 2019 to 2022.
