Dissemination seminar of marine and maritime R&D&I in the Macaronesian Region

A dissemination seminar of marine and maritime R&D&I in the Macaronesian Region was celebrated within the framework of the RIS3_NET (Interregional Co-operation for the Intelligent Growth of the MAC Regions) project, as part of the “Blue Growth” pilot project. The objective of this pilot project is to promote the Macaronesian R & D & I related to the Blue Growth Strategy of the European Commission.

The responsibles for dissemination representing the main partners of the project participated during the seminar: the Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society of the Government of the Canary Islands (ACIISI), The Technological Institute of the Canary Islands (ITC), the Regional Agency for the Development of Research, Technology and Innovation of Madeira (ARDITI), the Regional Fund for Science and Technology of Azores (FRCT) and the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN).

 

The RIS3_Net projected is 85% co-funded with ERD funds from the first call for projects of the Interreg MAC 2014-2020 programme and its final endpoint is to create a Trans-Regional Platform for the smart specialisation of the MAC space that brings together the resources, actions and tools available by driving the socio-economic promotion of R+D+i.
