The maritime aspects of climate change
November 26 @ 09:00 - November 27 @ 13:00
The sixth thematic meeting of the Interact Knowledge of the Seas network focuses on the maritime aspects of climate change. The event is organised in Piraeus, Greece on 26-27 November 2019.
The first day of the event provides an opportunity to learn from and exchange with policy and strategic actors, thematic experts, EU funding programmes and cooperation projects how to tackle climate change. Moreover, it enables participants to discuss how to best join forces in tackling climate change. The second day is devoted to the Knowledge of the seas network itself, its ongoing and future activities – naturally reflecting on and taking into account the discussions from the first day. The target group of this event are on the one hand Interreg Programmes with a maritime character or component, and especially Joint Secretariat staff members dealing with maritime project generation, assessment, monitoring and support. At the same time, the meeting will provide a broader approach also inviting thematic experts and stakeholders as well as project representatives to ensure a holistic view to the topic of the maritime aspects of climate change.
CSHIPP has been invited to take part in the session Joining forces – The cross-project and cross-programme approach which is organised on Tuesday, 26 November at 14.30-16.30. The objective of the session is to go beyond Interreg borders, to learn more about other funding sources tackling climate change and to
look for possible synergies also between Interreg and other projects.
