MADE in MED
Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19 April 2018 - Auditorium del Massimo, Rome - Italy
On 18th and 19th April 2018, Rome hosted an unprecedented event for the Interreg MED Programme.
Built on the concept of Fablab: "Fabrication Laboratory", "MADE in MED - crafting the future Mediterranean" presented the first results of the 90 projects co-financed by the Programme in a unique way. A conference articulated around three transversal themes: climate change, blue economy and inclusive growth outlined the projects' achievements. An exhibition gave a taste and concrete feeling of the project results and activities. And last but not least, politically-oriented round tables, allowed to scale-up the discussions, look beyond the current situation and together craft the future cooperation in the Mediterranean.
- Through the concrete results of Modular, Horizontal and Governance projects, illustrate how the Interreg MED Programme architecture has become a “living” integrated process with tangible contributions, where thematic communities speak in one voice.
- Demonstrate the added value of transnational cooperation and more specifically of the Interreg MED Programme by showcasing project results from a transversal perspective;
- Encourage integration with other programmes;
- Reinforce our message at local and European policy level.
Several projects are taking the opportunity of our "MADE in MED" conference to organise side events taking place between 9th April and 16th May 2018 to share their work with a broader audience.
