iBLUE - April 2018

The analysis of the literature on business model innovation in yachting sector was completed, as well as the collection of business cases best practices. Every partner identified three examples of best practices in the field of sustainability, from an economic, social and environmental point of view, on the basis of some properly defined sustainability indicators. All partners also searched for three other companies to be analysed as case studies.

In order to compensate for the lack of data concerning the yachting sector in the Med area, a search for national data was completed. The sector had been preliminarily divided into three macro-sectors (manufacturing, services, infrastructures). Data among yachting companies were collected with regards to business model, economic impact, employment, strengths, weaknesses and sustainability level. A first version of a database with yachting companies in Med area was created.

Next events will be:

  • Thematic Seminar: “Yachting Sector in Albania, challenges and the perspective” – Durres, April 27th;
  • Consortium Training Course – Seville, May 8th;
  • Thematic Seminar: “Business Models and Sustainability” – Seville, May 9th;
