On 18 June, join us to celebrate the launch of the Interreg Euro-MED Innovative Sustainable Economy (ISE) Mission Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP launch aims to connect, share, learn, and collaborate through community-building exercises, thematic group discussions, presenting a common result amplification approach, and the co-creation of a synergistic map. The event will bring together the 14 Thematic Projects focused on blue and green circular economies.

On 19 June, we will celebrate the first edition of the MED Innovation Day, a dynamic event that will enhance the vision of a desirable sustainable Mediterranean. Participants will be guided through a discussion to imagine a shared future and define actions to work towards that goal. The session will foster collaboration by bringing together local and regional authorities, researchers, entrepreneurs, SMEs, and civil society actors to catalyze innovative sustainable practices in the Mediterranean region.

The MED Innovation Day will be wrapped up with a panel discussion on how to scale up innovative solutions to achieve zero waste in the Mediterranean. The interactive session will focus mainly on the role of innovation in the region in tackling waste challenges, bringing up key topics like local communities’ empowerment for meaningful and inclusive actions; the role of research in informing and stimulating innovation; balance of zero-waste targets with socio-economic priorities in policymaking; and the role of the private sector in putting sustainable innovation forward.
