Consultation Workshop on Climate Change and Blue Growth: The Mediterranean Sea Group

28 January 2022 10:00

In this Preparatory Living Lab (PLL) we will direct our focus on the industry sector and aim to address questions such as what are the pathways for implementing new innovation/research into the activities of the business (where do you look for new research/for adopters of your research, for policies/ISO regulations and in how many EU-funded projects have you participated). The stakeholder group of this PLL is from the STI triangle (science, technology, innovation) and policy sector in the Mediterranean Sea. The PLL is part of a Preparatory Living Lab series, which take place every 2 months until November 2023 and will provide you with the opportunity to identify climate change challenges and pathways in STI, highlight your local needs and challenges and discuss them with public administrators and stakeholders selected from your region dealing with STI policies in the Climate Change domain. It will also provide you with a unique opportunity to know how the IntelComp platform can help you to answer relevant policy questions covering the full policy life cycle, using the Systems Innovation Approach (SIA).
