Capitalisation projects jointly bear fruit
Having worked in close collaboration and coordination since their very start, the 13 MED capitalisation projects have realised and will realise joint activities:
The five MED capitalisation projects in the field of innovation and creative cluster organized a joint conference on April, 2nd in Marseilles. The projects involved were ACCELMED, CreativeMED, SHAPES, 3C4 INCUBATORS, CITEK.
The capitalisation projects specialised in the field of the green development organised the second event edition in the cycle of MED capitalisation events. The ECO-SCP MED, MER, MEDLAND2020 and ZEROWASTEPRO projects held an event on May, 15th in Bologna.
Jointly concluding in Brussels...
Moreover, the capitalisation projects decided to jointly organise a final capitalisation event in Brussels in March 2015 to joinlty extract and illustrate the quintessence of the past years of cooperation.
The event will follow a two-fold approach: one main objective is to reflect on lessons learnt from the capitalisation call exercise. Another principal objective, more oriented to an external audience, is to conclude in a restricted set of general themes tackled by the projects: The 13 projects shed light on a wide range of specific issues, capitalising the experience of about 70 projects from previous MED calls and other EU programmes. Always combining “innovation” and “sustainable development” in different forms, these projects develop common/shared solutions with territorial impact – namely at regional scale.
More specifically, the foreseen activities aim at providing/improving solutions
- to raise innovation capacities of SMEs and territories, particularly in the Creativity and Cultural sector;
- for sustainable territorial management, namely concerning urban and coastal areas, as well as the attractiveness of depopulated areas(services).
We will keep you updated about this upcoming event.
