Description of the event: 

On 27-28 June 2022, the BLUEfasma project celebrates its closure inviting you to attend the Conference “Shaping a Circular Blue Economy in the Mediterranean” in Cairo, Egypt.

Some of the topics that will be discussed are the following:

  • How can circular practices benefit blue sectors and the economy?
  • How can regional cooperation, public-private partnerships and science-business collaborations boost the circular economy transition?
  • What is the role of civil society?

On the first day, the aim is to foster exchange among key actors of blue economy sectors from both shores of the Mediterranean to identify common challenges and opportunities, share best practices and reinforce the Circular Economy transition. Tools, methods and recommendations will be presented to increase innovation capacity. Public authorities, business, research and civil society representatives are invited to share their perspectives and collaborate in shaping a more Circular Blue Economy in the region.

On the second day, participants will have the chance to gain on-site “blue economy experience” on a field visit.

BLUEfasma project focuses on the sectors of fisheries and aquaculture, aspiring to trigger change and increase the sector’s low Circular Economy innovation performance through the provision of tailored tools and the implementation of BLUEfasma Living Labs in 11 territories, in 9 Mediterranean countries (Cyprus, France, Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Malta, Italy, Spain, Portugal).
