BLUE DEAL kick off meeting

On 18th and 19th of December 2019, more than 35 experts gathered at the headquarters of ENEA (Italian National Agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable economic development) in Rome to celebrate the kick off of the BLUE DEAL Interreg MED project. During the meeting Partners took the opportunity to organize upcoming activities, coordinate work and establish the objectives of this ambitious project.
BLUE DEAL is a European project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund based on the capitalization of Blue Energy (BE).
The project aims to increase transnational activity of innovative clusters and networks of the BE sector, develop links and synergies between SME`s, public authorities, knowledge institutions and civil society and establish transnational and regional Blue Deal Alliances.
This project will create a favorable environment for BE investments and for developing sustainable actions in the Mediterranean economy.



With a budget of 2.8 million euros and 32 months of work ahead, BLUE DEAL integrates 13 partners from 7 countries and 9 different regions around the Mediterranean.

Interreg MED Modular project - BLUE DEAL - "Blue Energy Deployment Alliance"

The MED area will include Blue Energy (BE) in maritime planning and governance, thanks to BLUE DEAL project. Given the early stage of BE technologies, proper information to deliver consistent strategies, plans and regulations in the BE sector are still missing; this often compromises public-private initiatives for exploiting marine renewable energy and discourages investments. The project’s aim is to overcome current technical and administrative restrictions for BE deployment and define proper requirements and procedures to support decisions and guarantee compliance with regulatory, environmental and social constraints. BLUE DEAL foresights a series of transnational Labs to involve multi-sectorial stakeholders, perform participative planning processes and establish public-private alliances through open innovation actions.

Interreg MED Modular project – BLUEfasma- "Empowering innovation capacity of SMEs, maritime clusters and networks in MED islands and coastal areas to support blue circular economy growth in fishing/aquaculture"

BLUEfasma integrates and implements Circular Economy (CE) principles in the key blue growth sector of fishing/aquaculture to benefit MED insular/coastal areas in a novel/innovative way. The project team tackles the transnational challenge of continual depletion of natural resources and the below-EU-average MED CE innovation performance in fishing/aquaculture. Its overall objective is to empower innovation capacity of SMEs, maritime clusters/networks, PAs to boost blue CE growth in insular/coastal areas. CE prevents depletion of resources by closing energy & materials loops, leading to smart/sustainable growth as a key MED joint asset.
