Circular Blue Economy event Barcelona

On May 10, 2022, the SwitchMed programme, the Interreg MED Blue Growth Community and the Interreg MED BLUEfasma modular project co-organised a hybrid capitalisation event entitled “Fostering Circular Blue Economy in the Mediterranean” in Barcelona and online. The event was the occasion to launch a report on the integration of Circular Economy in the Blue Economy sectors in the Mediterranean. It was co-developed by MedWaves (former SCP/RAC) and the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR), with the support of Plan Bleu, as part of the above-mentioned projects’ activities. Furthermore, the agenda included two plenary panels gathering stakeholders to reflect on opportunities for blue circular economy in fisheries and aquaculture, on the one hand, and on nautical tourism and port activities, on the other. The event was organised back-to-back to a brokerage session on Smart Specialisation Strategies in the blue biotechnologies sector organised by DG MARE on May 9.

The recordings of the sessions (in English, French and Spanish) and the presentations are available at the link below.
