A place for DIHs to join forces and collaborate!
As part of joint collaboration between DG MARE and JRC, the S3 Platform has been analysing some Blue Growth emerging sectors, identifying the indicators that will enable measuring of the closely related innovative activities across Europe and the role of smart specialisation in the enhanced networking among the EU regions and Member States actively engaged in these emerging sectors. This year a particular focus was devoted to the selected pilot emerging sector of marine renewable energy. The results of the analysis done in the frame of the scientific work of the JRC S3 Platform and sub-contractors from the Basque Energy Cluster will be included in the 2019 Annual Economic Report on the EU Blue Economy. Furthermore, the work and case studies will be showcased at a thematic workshop on "Smart Specialisation and the Emerging Blue Sectors" organised in the frame of the largest event of Europe’s maritime community called "European Maritime Days" on 17 June in Lisbon.
