      Dear colleagues,

      Many thanks for the fruitful expert meeting held in Brussels. SOIB is interested in lifelong learning, mobility and training programs but also in Industry and education cooperation.

      I just want to highlight that progress is a matter of step by step and this is the reason why SOIB and Sea Tech SL, which is representing the European Boating Industry, have already had a face to face meeting to explore different ways to boost the skills and career developments in the Blue economy.

      Both companies are located in Mallorca and we have known each other due the Brussels meeting so it is worthy believe that Blue Economy expert group is a great networking plattform that may give us the chance to execute fresh actions among different stakeholders.

      Lets keep in contact!
