New EU Project - "CoRINThos"

Date: 12/06/2014

Maritime Institute of Eastern Mediterranean are proud to announce that the project “Maritime Clusters supporting Research & Innovation to enhance Blue Economy Entrepreneurship”, with acronym “CoRINThos”, in which the Maritime Institute of Eastern Mediterranean is participating as partner of the consortium,  was approved in April 2014.

The “CoRINThos” project,  which is going to be financed with a budget of €569.770 by the framework of the Med Programme of the European Commission, will be carried out by the following research and maritime cluster organizations. It will run for 1 year,  starting on 01/07/14 and ending on 30/06/15.

  • Chamber of Commerce Industry Craft and Agriculture of Venice (Italy)
  • Maritime Cluster of Balearic Islands (Spain)
  • Maritime Institute of Eastern Mediterranean (Cyprus)
  • University of the Aegean – Research Unit (Greece)

The project will commence with the mapping of the current situation on a national and transnational level and define the success factors characterizing maritime clusters through benchmarking of EU and international relevant best practices with the elaboration of a triple helix matrix that will represent the backbone of the project research methodology.

“CoRINThos” will tackle R&D gaps as driving factors of maritime clusters.  These R&D gaps will be identified and contextualized through a methodology designed to define an eco-systemic sector & geographical synergies among maritime established and emerging sectors at MED level: the hypothesis of a Blue economy scenario.

The hypothesis of a Blue economy scenario is expected to delineate synergies with concrete growth potentialities and related R&D gaps that need to be addressed to boost the identified growth potential. The hypothesis of Blue economy scenario will be elaborated into sound recommendations, addressed to both the MED Programme, as well as, to Regional/National Authorities and into draft Terms of References – ToRs - to be used as a conceptual methodology for the establishment of future pilot projects.

The results of the project will be reviewed by the below listed “Associated Strategic” partners which form the Scientific Committee of “CoRINThos” project:

  • Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport
  • Chamber of Commerce Industry & Agriculture of Tripoli & North Lebanon
  • Cyprus University of Technology, Department of Civil Engineering & Geomatics
  • Federazione del Mare – Italian Maritime Cluster
  • Hellenic Center for Marine Research, Institute of Marine Biology, Biotechnology and Aquaculture
  • Maritime Forum Norway
