MEDBAN: six mediterranean maritime clusters join forces under the guidance of the WestMED Assistance Mechanism

Today (July 6, 2022) the COSME MEDBAN (MEDiterranean Blue Acceleration Network) was launched  with the signature of  the Memorandum of Understanding  between its partners in the headquarters of the Fedarzione Del Mare in Rome.

MEDBAN, is a consortium that consists of six clusters: Fórum Oceano (leader), Federazione del Mare, Cluster BIG – Blue Italian Growth, CMIB Cluster Marítimo Illes Balears, Strategis – Maritime ICT Cluster and  Pôle Mer Méditerranée – that have joined forces to build an innovation acceleration ecosystem based on Med Ports as ESG (Environmental, Social, Governmental) blue economy hubs.

The initial idea was born in September 2021 at Seafuture in La Spezia , and evolved through the WestMED created Maritime Clusters Alliance Technical Group into a successful submission  for COSME funding. Now….ready to start in September 2022.
