This project aims to strengthen a transnational partnership made up of 8 countries (2 Ministries, 8 Regions, 5 Clusters, 3 RTOs and other organizations) in order to:

    • make marine knowledge and sustainable innovation the key drivers for Blue Growth,
    • support MED clusters to become an excellent intermediary of knowledge for increasing blue economy,
    • design and implement sustainable development trajectories harmonized with the MED regions Smart Specialization Strategies.

The strong partnership, thanks to the open innovation approach, will act as catalyzer for cooperative sustainable innovation actions, placing MISTRAL in a unique position to help the boost of the Blue Growth sector in the MED area responding to the programme challenges. 

A clustering innovation service pack for Blue Growth clusters and operators will improve the innovation performance of at least 300 SMEs with at least 100 experts benefitting from the transnational activities and exchange programmes on capacity building. 

MISTRAL has the ambition to develop a wider governance vision towards 2020 in the BG sector as well as assuring the effective policy mainstreaming. In conclusion, MISTRAL will be the Blue Innovation wind in the MED area unlocking the innovation potential of the coastal and marine ecosystem.
