The Malta Intelligent Energy Management Agency (MIEMA) attended the MADE IN MED conference held in Rome earlier this month and organized in the framework of the Interreg MED Programme.
MIEMA invited a number of stakeholders that participated in the conference, including Robert Tabone of the Ministry for Justice, Culture and Local Government, Joe Muscat the CEO of the Gozo Tourism Association , together with Gozo Mayors – Noel Formosa of San Lawrenz, Paul Buttigieg of Qala and Philip Vella from Sannat.
Built on the concept of FABLAB – Fabrication Laboratory, the MADE in MED event presented the first results of 90 projects through a conference and an exhibition.
The two day-conference served as an opportunity to convey the idea and values of co-working, knowledge sharing and innovation, but also to look towards the future of cooperation between Mediterranean countries.
The Conference’s main objective was to illustrate how the Interreg MED Programme architecture has become a “living” integrated process with tangible contributions, where thematic communities speak in one voice, through the concrete results of Modular, Horizontal and Governance projects.
It also aimed to demonstrate the added value of transnational cooperation and more specifically of the Interreg MED Programme by showcasing project results from a transversal perspective and encouraging integration with other programmes.
MIEMA is a partner in 6 projects funded under the Interreg MED programme: NEW FINANCE, LOCAL4GREEN, PEGASUS, PRISMI, STEPPING and MAESTRALE.
