Ongoing European Projects

TECHERA “A new technology era in the Adriatic Sea – Big data sharing and analytics for a circular sea economy”

The project TECHERA has been funded by the Interreg Italy-Croatia Cooperation Programme 2014/2020 in the framework of Cluster 1 and arises from the capitalization of 6 previous projects ADRIREEF, FAIRSEA, ITACA, SUSHIDROP, PRIZEFISH and BLUE KEP that have tested data-driven innovative approaches and practices in the context of the blue economy.

The novel interfaces, data analysis procedures and acquisition methods developed in these projects will be pooled to showcase how they can converge in a unique "Infosphere" to compensate for the lack of marine data and improve the blue economy by ensuring cost-savings and sustainability.

ARGOS “ShARed GOvernance of Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture activities as leverage to protect marine resources in the Adriatic Sea”

ARGOS project has been funded in the framework of the strategic call of the Interreg V A Cooperation Programme 2014 – 2020 – Priority “Environmental and Cultural heritage”. The project is coordinated by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and is composed by a partnership of 15 institutional and scientific bodies of the Adriatic area included the Marche Region – Innovation and International Cooperation Unit.

The general objective of ARGOS is to promote and apply a common integrated approach in the protection of marine resources and in the preservation of good environmental status of Adriatic Sea, built upon both institutional and operative actions oriented to reduce directly and indirectly the human pressure by fisheries and aquaculture activities on marine habitats and species. Institutional actions provide a shared approach to common topics concerning the sustainable management of fisheries and aquaculture activities; operative actions provide the definition and the testing of shared protocols and schemes for the reduction of fish-related pressures on marine environment, in accordance with Programme and Strategic Theme Concepts. Such an integrated approach is based on the best available scientific advice as well as by operative stakeholders for the application of common direct measures to increase the environmental and economic sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture activities.

Moreover, the project intends to contribute to the setting up of common governance framework at transnational level where all Institutions competent for fisheries and aquaculture in the Programme area act as a whole thanks to the cooperation and constant dialogue among Adriatic institution , scientific bodies and sector stakeholders.

ARIEL PLUS “Promoting small scale fisheries and aquaculture transnational networking in Adriatic-Ionian macroregion PLUS”

The ARIEL Plus  project is co-founded  the Interreg VB ADRION Cooperation Programme 2014/2020 and intends to capitalize and extend the results and the methodology tested within the previous project ARIEL that promoted innovative and sustainable practices in the small-scale fisheries and aquaculture sectors. The project intends to make the best use of the ARIEL approach, tactics and tools developed in 3 years of joint implementation, capitalizing, and widening the ARIEL knowledge network and the cooperation put in place between local/regional/national public authorities, research bodies, small-scale fisheries and aquaculture socio-economic operators .
 Built on a deep understanding of these two sectors challenges at regional and ADRION level as well as on a set of policy and technical recommendations delivered in the previous project, ARIEL PLUS - despite its short duration (8 months) - is expected to:
