Tehnopolis presented two projects at the Blue Growth Forum


On November 27, the Chamber of Commerce of Montenegro and the Institute for Modern Technologies of Montenegro organized the Blue Growth Forum and a panel discussion on the topic “Development policies offered by the blue growth economy”.

Within the Forum led by Marija Raspopovic from the Chamber of Commerce, projects, project activities, and achieved results in the field of blue growth implemented by institutions and organizations in Montenegro were presented, all with the aim of better connecting between different types of actors and further cooperation between them.

On that occasion, two projects implemented by IEC Tehnopolis were presented – the BioTourS and BlueBioMed projects.

BioTourS aims to introduce best practices in sustainable tourism, preserve the natural heritage of the Adriatic – Ionian region, and involve young people in cross-border tourism activities that will raise awareness about whale conservation. The project is co-financed through IPA II funds of the European Union within the Interreg IPA CBC Italy-Albania-Montenegro.

BLUEBIOMED strategic project, co-financed under the Interreg Mediterranean Program for Transnational Cooperation, promotes the transformation of the blue economy sector in the Mediterranean through innovation. The project supports better governance of innovation policies through the consideration of transnational governance frameworks in the Mediterranean area in line with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs).

In addition to these two, Tehnopolis is implementing a third blue project – BLUEAIR, which aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of countries and regions of the Adriatic-Ionian region in defining a common approach to implementing smart specialization policy in the field of blue growth at the macroregional level.

In addition to the Chamber of Commerce and Technopolis, the Institute for Modern Technologies of Montenegro, the Institute of Marine Biology of the University of Montenegro, and the Science and Technology Park presented their projects in the field of the blue economy within the Blue Growth Forum and panel discussion “Development opportunities offered by the blue growth economy”.
