PROteuS - "Mid-Term Conference”
PROteuS project was presented in the Blue Growth Community Mid-Term Conference, organized by the Association of Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce (ASCAME), in the framework of the MedaWeek 2018.
PROteuS aims at exploiting the growth potential of Maritime Surveillance industry that may play a crucial role in the socio-economic development of MED area and in the generation of new business and job opportunities.
This objective will be addressed through the establishment of a MED Maritime Surveillance Cluster based on 6 national Nodes, fostering innovation and R&D capacities, knowledge and technology transfer, as well as transnational cooperation among the key actors, focusing on maritime security and safety mechanisms in MED area.
The Maritime Surveillance sectors examined and mapped based on trends, needs and gaps are: Maritime Safety and Security, Marine Environment, Border Control, General Law Enforcement, Customs, Fisheries, and Defense.
The participation of PROteuS in the Blue Growth Community is useful to contribute to boost the community and to exchange with relevant Mediterranean stakeholders and representatives of the Maritime projects funded by the Interreg Med Programme.
