Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) hosted the 5th consortium meeting of FinMED project on 31st March and 1st April. The main project objective is to boost the financing of innovation in sectors linked to ‘green growth’, i.e. sustainable or environmentally friendly, in the Mediterranean region.
32 attendees from 9 European countries participated in this coordination meeting, which was held by videoconference due to the mobility restrictions decreed by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The meeting focused on analyzing the results of the evaluations that have been carried out of the two tools developed by the project: one as a service of the public administrations themselves, and the other to support companies seeking financing in green growth sectors.
In addition, the project partners have started planning the next activities, contextualizing them in the new pandemic scenario. To do this, the Piedmont Region, as project coordinator, has prepared a contingency plan which contemplates possible scenarios for dealing with the risks associated with the current situation.
FinMED is co-funded by the Interreg-MED programme and brings together 15 partners from 9 European countries (Italy, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Portugal, Cyprus, Slovenia, France, Malta and Spain). The project is going to last 48 months and has a total budget of 4.3 million euros.
