2020 UfM Regional Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy and WESTMED Hackathons

10-11 March, Barcelona

The 2020 UfM Regional Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy and WESTMED Hackathons on 10 and 11 March 2020 will take place at the Palau de Pedralbes, in Barcelona (Spain). The UfM Regional Stakeholders Conference on Blue Economy is a key step on the way to the 2020 UfM Ministerial Conference on Blue Economy, scheduled for the 2nd July in Malta.

The Stakeholder Conference is meant to offer the possibility to consult with a wide range of relevant actors on priority themes identified by the countries to feed the joint post 2020 Blue Economy agenda; promote dialogue and exchange of experiences on common areas of work; keep stock of the progress of the activities at regional level; and maintain a high participatory approach to ensure stakeholders involvement in pulling together capacities, mandates and resources.

The conference will be structured along parallel thematic workshops/sessions.  The WestMED Hackathons will take place on the afternoon of 11 March, after the end of the Stakeholder Conference. The participation to these hackathons is limited but stakeholders from both west and east Mediterranean are welcome to express their interest.
