Towards the “Made in MED” event in Rome

You are here


Barcelona, February 07, 2018 –  ASCAME – in the framework of the InnoBlueGrowth project – is taking part to the organization of the Interreg Med mid-term event “Made in MED” in Rome – planned on April 18-19, 2018. This mid-term event is conceived as a factory where Mediterranean people build values, communities, job opportunities: the main purpose of this event is to demonstrate how the Interreg MED Programme architecture has become a “living” integrated process with tangible results, where thematic communities speak in one voice.

The overall ambition is to deliver focused messages to policy level therefore influencing future perspectives and planning actions, both at transnational and national levels, beyond 2020. In order to reach this political objective, the Interreg MED thematic communities are called to highlight how the individual results of their projects can be “translated” into shared common messages and related added value, both for the population of local beneficiaries and projects as well as for policy makers at regional, national and transnational level.

Through the participation of all horizontal projects to the coordination meetings, the Joint Secretariat of the programme defined the three main topics of the “Made in MED” event: climate change, blue economy and inclusive growth.

ASCAME – as partner of the Horizontal InnoBlueGrowth project and responsible of the communication – is actively contributing to the mid-term event, by proposing high impact and interactive performances and providing for suggestions regarding exhibition and communication issues and possible speakers for the thematic sessions.


InnoBlueGrowth is a three-year project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, within the Interreg Med Programme.

The partnership is composed by CoNISMa – National Inter-University Consortium for Marine Sciences (Lead Partner), ASCAME, CPMR – Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions of Europe, Plan Bleu for the environment and development in the Mediterranean, NTUA – National Technical University of Athens, UOM – University of Montenegro – Institute for marine biology.
