Smart Interregional Cooperation Strategy for Innovation capacities in the Energy Sector on the MED area

SMARTinMED aims at increasing Mediterranean SMEs innovation capacities with a specific focus on renewable energies and energy efficiency. The project capitalises on the results achieved in previous European projects and specifically on IC-MED project, so to help SMEs in better facing local, national and international competition by increasing their market shares, by supporting their capacities to keep high rate of innovation and better profiting from networking and cooperation across the Mediterranean. By a preliminary mapping and analysis exercise on regional renewable energies and energy efficiency markets and the involvement of the relevant stakeholders (esp. SMEs), project partners will be able to identify high potential activities, the most promising value chains and target markets. Inside the value chains/markets/domains identified, a sound analysis will focus on SMEs [...]

Network for strengthening and improving the implementation of the IPPC European Directives regarding the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control in the Mediterranean

MED-IPPC-NET is a 30 month-project whose main goal is the identification of crucial aspects in the implementation of the IPPC Directives 96/61/EC and 2008/1/EC concerning Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control within the Mediterranean space, in order to establish a set of common criteria that should be taken into account by all Mediterranean regions wishing to enhance their implementation. These common criteria will constitute the inputs for the development of a common methodology for the implementation of the IPPC Directives within the Mediterranean area, which will help turn the Mediterranean into a point of reference regarding the environmental behaviour of its industrial facilities. To achieve this goal, project partners will be brought together in a Mediterranean network for strengthening and improving the implementation of the IPPC [...]

Coordination of regional policies for the forest with the help of a new governance instrument : the “model forest”

The concept appears to be well adapted to address the recurrent challenges of the Mediterranean forest. A model forest is a « development process based upon partnership, through which individuals and groups representing a diversity of values work together in a common vision for the sustainable development of a landscape in which forests represent a critical feature ». The objective of the FORÊT MODÈLE MED project is to set up a coordination of regional policies through the joint definition of a "Mediterranean model" of model forest and its concrete implementation : the creation of the first model forest in each region (the second in Castilla y Leon), thanks to the project, is the concrete objective shared by all partners). The work programme follows a logical [...]

Common Mediterranean strategy and local practical Actions for the mitigation of Port, Industries and Cities Emissions

APICE proposes a decision-making approach & related set of mitigation measures that assume the impact of air pollution sources as driver for the coast management in port-cities. This model is based on a stronger coordination of environmental and spatial planning policies, leading to curb emissions and preserving economic potentialities of port-cities. Results will be owned by some of the main MED port-cities to move towards the attainments of the key objectives of EU Integrated Maritime Policy
