Kick-off meeting of the European BlueConnect cooperation project
The kick-off meeting of the BlueConnect French-Italian cooperation project took place on 1-2 March 2017 at the headquarters of the French « Pôle Mer Méditerranée » (Toulon Var Technologies).
The objective of the BlueConnect project is to observe and map the port activities of 6 cross-border territories (Alpes Maritimes, Var, Corsica, Tuscany, Liguria, Sardinia) in order to identify areas for development and to facilitate the access of some very small and medium enterprises to the maritime markets with strong potential. Three sectors are targeted:
- Pleasure boating and Yachting
- Cruise and Ferry
- Maritime logistics
The project builds on the experience gained by the French Riviera Chamber of Commerce and Industry through its Alpes Maritimes Ports Observatory. It allows to expand its perimeter and its network of professionals beyond the borders of the Alpes Maritimes department.
BlueConnect is one of the projects funded by the INTERREG Italy-France Maritime 2014-2020 Programme, selected following a very competitive Call for projects. The project started on February 1, 2017 for a period of 24 months.
The projects brings together the main economic actors of the French-Italian cooperation area : Pôle Mer Méditerranée (Project coordinator), the French Riviera Chamber of Commerce and Industry (that coordinates the Ports Observatory of the 6 territoires), the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the Var, Haute Corse and Sassari as well as the Port Authorities of La Spezia and of Livorno.
