After one year from the launch in Rimini of the Italian HUB, BlueMissionMed CSA brings back all the Mediterranean Stakeholders engaged with the EU Misison Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2023 to the Ecomondo Exhibition. BlueMissionMed, with all the co-organisers, embraces this opportunity to shorten the gap among innovative solutions and the business community, and, moreover, to enhance the business capacities to deploy innovative solutions. To do so, demonstration activities for the innovative solutions, targeting different industrial sectors and covering the geographical variability of the Mediterranean, will be organized with the cooperation of the BlueMissionMed HUBs. As well, with the help of the Business Country Desk platform, a match-making session will take place among business pioneers in the prevention and reduction of pollution interested in upscaling their business models with the innovative transformative solutions showcased.

Trasformative changes requires profound societal engagement to be implemented. During the event, the winners of the Society4Med award will be presented to the whole stakeholder community to inspire similar activities across and beyond the Mediterranean basin.
