Nowadays the association has more 4,000 active members. The organization is aimed at developing the cooperation and the exchange of environmental information among its members in as well as identifying and appraising the current problems of environmental protection on a national, regional and international basis. International Conference 2017 "Environmental engineering and sustainable development”, in memoriam Prof. dr. F.K. Vosniakos will be held in Alba Iulia, Romania, May 25 – 27 and will be focused on:
  1. Sustainable development and environmental protection
  2. Food safety, food quality and authentication of food products
  3. European integration, capacity building and market economy
  4. Agriculture, renewable energy and environment monitoring
  5. Effects of pollution on health – cell biology and molecular medicine perspectives
Mare Nostrum NGO, partner of MARINA Project, will be present on May 26, Section 1, at 12:10 a.m. with an oral presentation “Mobilisation and Mutual Learning – a Responsible Research and Innovation tool”, made by Anca Gheorghe.

    MARINA Workshop
    How can Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) enable Blue Growth initiatives? A hands-on approach and roadmap

    ESOF 2018, 10 July,  8.45 am - 10.00 am
    Toulouse

    MARINA will be conducting a workshop at EuroScience Open Forum - ESOF 2018, the largest interdisciplinary science meeting in Europe.

    MARINA workshop, titled “How can Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) enable Blue Growth initiatives? A hands-on approach and roadmap” will showcase lessons learned and best practices from 34 local and 8 international mobilisation and mutual learning European workshops from the EU-funded RRI-project MARINA.
    The MARINA workshops have actively engaged more than 1100 actors and stakeholders from policy, science, business, NGOs/ CSOs and society to debate and define actionable roadmaps of how to embed Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in Blue Growth topics. The topics cover blue energy, sustainable tourism, coastal urban development, aquaculture, fisheries, marine litter, re-invigorating old harbours, deep sea mining and nanotechnology. All these activities have resulted in a collection of lessons learned and best practices for applying RRI, participatory approach and stakeholder engagement. This collection has been boiled down into the RRI Roadmap for Blue Growth and beyond.
    The workshop will be highly participative testing the RRI Roadmap for Blue Growth and Nanotechnology. Participants in groups will test the RRI-Roadmap and compete or collaborate to achieve Blue Growth initiatives using RRI. Each group will be given limited RRI resources and it will be required to compete and/ or collaborate with other groups in achieving a concise RRI common approach. At the end of the participatory exercise, the workshop facilitator will collect experiences from the participant-groups and draw conclusions. The workshop will continue with short "fire" presentations from MARINA and other EU-funded RRI-related projects for discussing and consolidating how RRI can enable Blue Growth.
    The workshop will end by sharing a summary of policy-oriented RRI initiatives based on the MARINA European policy survey and experiences from engaging multi-disciplinary actors in blue growth and nanotechnology initiatives. The RRI Roadmap and its best practices do not only relate to marine fields but to any business-science-policy societal challenge field such as nanotechnology.
