Blue Growth

InnoBlueGrowth’s main objective is to build a real community of projects dealing with Blue Growth. This innovative community will allow the reinforcement of the cross-cutting and integrated dynamics between projects and transnational key stakeholders. This approach is a condition to support Mediterranean clusters in their transnational activities processes.

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