The outermost regions: an asset for Europe

October 11, 2018 from 14:30 to 16:00

The outermost regions of the European Union from as far as the Atlantic ocean, Indian ocean, the Caribbean sea or the Amazonia, represent valuable assets to the EU in key areas such as astrophysics, oceanography, renewable sources of energy or biotechnology. The outermost regions' "S3 Network on smart specialisation" and the "Energy OR Network" will showcase the contribution of these regions to the development of blue innovation and decarbonisation of energy, providing innovative answers to global problems, with 4 flagship projects: * SLIME: a service for the monitoring and control of energy consumption in Reunion Island - * Reducing the marina energy consumption in "Le Marin", Martinique * MisticSeas: a coordinated approach for the protection of the marine biodiversity in Macaronesia basin - * River wind turbines in French Guiana
