CApitalisation for Re-setting Innovation and Sustainability in MED-Cities

Thematic objective: A.2 Support to education, research, technological development and innovation

Description Of the Project

CARISMED promotes the uptake of results achieved by 3 ongoing ENI CBC MED projects to develop policies for improving sustainability and integrating innovation into the urban settings of Mediterranean cities, through the capitalization of circular economy (CE) and creative approaches. A great deal of experience in re-setting the existing environment will be provided by these projects through refurbishment and re-using underutilized or abandoned urban stock. Towards a more sustainable and smart urban development, a low-cost Adaptive Reuse Strategy will use MAIA-TAQA innovation practices and interlinks with policy-makers, and INNOMED-UP model for CE procedures within Cultural Creative Industry (CCI) SMEs. CE supply chain will address urban challenges while creating business opportunities for SMEs by using INNOMED-UP model and SME4SMARTCITIES smart tools and techniques through ‘ready to deploy’ solutions.

Cooperation agreements among cluster members will be further built up to enhance collaborative innovation schemes based on MAIA-TAQA policy instruments, SME4SMARTCITIES framework for collaboration between the public and private sector, and INNOMED-UP framework for CCI SMEs clustering. Finally, the project will promote innovative methodologies for re-setting the built environment in Mediterranean cities by developing a toolkit and guide on upcycling buildings and areas through CCI SMEs clustering.

We are pleased to announce that on 28 June 2022 the first meeting of the steering committee of the CApitalisation for Re-setting Innovation and Sustainability in MED- Cities (CARISMED) project was successfully concluded. The meeting, that was conducted in a hybrid way to ensure partner’s involvement, took place in Athens, at the National Technical University of Athens, at the Averof building of the Patision complex. JTS, the project lead; BZU and the project partners; NTUA, CC, CEEIM, CRESM, CRES, ISmed, and FPEC attended the meeting both in person and online for a very creative discussion that included a review of the program’s progress so far and the planning of its next interesting and multifaceted objectives. The in-depth planning was accompanied by informal forms of discussion and getting to know each other over lunch and dinner. We look forward with enthusiasm to the implementation of the next steps of the project as they emerged from the workshop, as well as our next face-to- face meeting.
