The National Institute of Biology (NIB) and the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport (MIZŠ) organized the first meeting of Bluemed in Slovenia on a ‘micro-regional’ level (northern Italy, Croatia and Slovenia). This event was organized together with the presentations from the EASAC (European Academies Science Advisory Council) and JRCs (Joint Research Centers), that are relevant for the Bluemed. For this reason a ‘two-days’ event was organized between 21st and 22nd March 2017. About 90 people participated. The meeting was designed in such a way that over all sessions the public discussion took place.

The Bluemed concept of development in marine and coastal area needs to be introduced and work on this concept needs to start. Therefore, the National Institute of Biology (NIB) in conjunction with the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport (MIZŠ) came up with the idea that the first meeting of Bluemed in Slovenia could be organized on a ‘micro-regional’ level (northern Italy, Croatia and Slovenia). From the beginning also an idea emerged that this event could be organized together with the presentation of the environmental report (2016) from the EASAC (European Academies Science Advisory Council) and JRC (Joint Research Centre), together with the presentations of some other activities of JRC’s in Europe that are relevant for the Bluemed. For this reason a ‘two-days’ event was organized by both institutions.
The first day was devoted to the Bluemed (Mediterranean) and EUSAIR (EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region) concepts. The EUSAIR concept is already established and covers the Adriatic-Ionian region. This is relevant also for the introduction of the Bluemed concept in countries of this region. Differences and synergies between these two concepts were addressed adequately, according to present findings. We deliberately introduced in this session the ‘Smart Specialization’ (national/regional innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3)), which was covered by the JRC…
