The European Commission and the Co-Presidency of the Initiative for the sustainable development of the blue economy in the western Mediterranean are holding the “Stakeholder conference: Towards concrete ‘blue’ actions in the western Mediterranean” on 3 December 2018 in Algiers, Algeria.

The event aims to facilitate the exchange of project ideas and promote concrete project development among stakeholders in the region operating in the maritime sector (businesses, researchers, institutes, national and local authorities belonging to the western Mediterranean Countries). This exchange will take place in the framework of 8 parallel sessions denominated Project Development Labs.

These Labs are moderated workshops involving selected practitioners across the Western Mediterranean (and beyond) with the purpose of creating strong partnerships and develop strategic projects ideas in relevant areas for the WestMED Initiative.

The project ideas, concrete proposals and potential partnerships  discussed will benefit of the support put in place by the Assistance Mechanism set up by the European Commission to boost the implementation of the WestMED Initiative .
