29 April 2019

 

An exciting new project - EMPORIA4KT - from the European Unionís (EU) INTERREG Atlantic Area funding programme will focus on assisting academics to transfer knowledge from their research in order to create value in the European Blue Economy. The Blue Economy represents all economic activities related to oceans, seas and coastal areas and includes industries such as fishing, shipbuilding, tourism and ocean energy. This growing sector is hugely important to Europe, and currently provides jobs for nearly 3.5 million people. The project brings together partners from 5 countries, and will work to forge links between academia, business and government

SPI is a partner in the project, focusing on capitalization and sharing of knowledge
