Innovative Sustainable Economy Community Hub

Imagine a vibrant community of like-minded individuals coming from the entire Mediterranean region, each with different knowledge and expertise but connected and engaged to drive a shared mission: to boost a fair transition to sustainable economy through transformative innovation in the Mediterranean basin. This is what we aim to do with the creation of the Innovative Sustainable Economy Community Hub: a virtual place where it will be possible to connect, closely collaborate, and be a reference community for all mediterranean stakeholders interested in the Innovative Sustainable Economy Mission.

The Hub will be officially launched in September 2024; we are now in the development process. By expressing your interest, you can become part of the consultation process that will take place in March 2024 and help us co-design strategic parts of this Hub according to your needs and interests. In this page you will be able to find all the updated information on the initiative.

The Hub in a Nutshell: 

The Innovative Sustainable Economy Community (ISEC) Hub will function as a community of organizations and individuals: the Hub will unite the Quadruple Helix of Mediterranean stakeholders from the North, East, West, and South and aims to become a dynamic space at the forefront of transformative innovation in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This collaborative effort is dedicated to advancing the goals of the Interreg Euro-MED Mission on Innovative Sustainable Economy.

Our Vision: 

The ISEC Hub serves, among others, as the nexus for Mission actors and external contributors. It will be supported by diversified online tools, fostering continuous engagement and interaction. This space will serve to connect stakeholders, facilitating exchanges and interactions, and to promote co-ownership of the ISE Mission’s activities by the community. Here, you can stay informed about our ongoing activities, receive concrete collaboration prospects, and offer your input by sharing your regional challenges, knowledge gaps, capacity requirements, as well as your priorities, events, and initiatives, contributing to our collective dialogue.

We have identified four pillars that will guide and support the Hub: Connect, Learn, Share and Collaborate. With these pillars, you will be able to:

  • Connect with other like-minded people within the Mediterranean critical mass following the Innovative Sustainable Economy Mission;  
  • Learn about existing innovative tools, solutions, and policy approaches to drive innovation in your territories; 
  • Share and read relevant news, institutional developments, events, and collaboration opportunities; 
  • Collaborate with other stakeholders, to exchange on territorial challenges and other collaboration prospects.
