Achieving a coherent innovation policy in the Adriatic-Ionian Region

A strategic network of key actors in the innovation community from the Western Balkans as well as Croatia, Greece, Italy and Slovenia are brought together in the BLUEAIR project ("Blue Growth in the Adriatic-Ionian Region").

It follows the Adriatic-Ionian Region's Smart Specialization Strategy (3S) on blue growth and strengthens the region's institutional capacity by building a specialized innovative community ensuring the coherence of local initiatives with the EUSAIR macro-regional strategy.

By bringing together many universities, chambers of commerce, scientific agencies, public administration and technological institutes the project proves in a very tangible way that the right path to innovation is the quadruple helix bringing together university, industry, administration and the public.  

The results of the BLUEAIR project will be felt most concretely by people on the shores of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas in better coordination of marine surveillance and more careful management of marine ecosystems, but also in crucial matters such as forecasted increasing high-sea levels.
