WestMED | Hackathons : Blue economy contribution to the Summit of the Two Shores | 14 May 2019

14 May 2019 - 14 May 2019


The Hackathons WestMED Palermo: Blue economy contribution to the Summit of the Two Shores were held on 14 May 2019 in Palermo, Italy.

This event aimed at facilitating the exchange of project ideas and promote concrete project development among stakeholders in the region operating in the maritime sector (businesses, researchers, institutes, national and local authorities belonging to the western Mediterranean Countries).

Specifically, this exchange will take place in the framework of 6 different parallel sessions covering the fields of Illegal fishing (IUU), Aquaculture, Plastic Litter, Clean Transport, Clusters and Tourism.

The parallel working sessions will be held in a ‘hackathon’ style, hence involving selected practitioners across the western Mediterranean (and beyond) with the purpose of taking existing project ideas to the next level, so to strengthen project partnerships and further develop the project concepts in line with the available funding opportunities for the region.

The morning session will host a showcase of a number of funding programmes/initiatives and project ideas relevant for the themes and topics to be discussed.
