As part of the Inter-Regional Co-operation Project for Smart Growth in the MAC Regions (RIS3_Net), PLOCAN participated as the partner responsible for designing and implementation of the “Blue Growth” sub-project that intends to characterise and drive R+D+I in Macaronesia related to the European Commission’s blue growth strategy. The different actions scheduled as part of this pilot initiative include holding a series of working panels with the research community of Macaronesia, in order to identify and analyse the barriers they face in conducting their R+D+I projects in the marine-maritime field and the opportunities offered by inter-regional co-operation in the Madeira, Azores and Canary Island Space.
