    Second collaborative lab of the "Building a West-Med Strategy" project with focus on Maritime and marine innovation, knowledge transfer, including emerging sectors and biotechnologies (North-South Corridor).


    The aim of the "Lab" is to assess the feasibility of a maritime strategy for the Western Mediterranean and a possible action plan.

    Among several areas of cooperation amongst northern and southern regions, we want to assess the potential visions and ideas to promote ‘Marine and maritime innovation and knowledge transfer across the Western Mediterranean.’

    A strong potential exists for economic re-development in the region through highly innovative sectors requiring research investment and knowledge generation, which could be better propelled by regional cooperation within the corridor and EU support.

    For this purpose, we aim at having a first round of exchanges with a limited number of relevant experts in Marseille.

    The objective is to discuss and exchange ideas on the development of emerging activities and application of new technologies and innovation processes to foster economically and environmentally sustainable maritime activities across the West Med.
