Greenomed – Mediterranean trans-regional cooperation for green manufacturing innovation – has the objective of testing and transferring a cooperation methodology, developed on the basis of the experiences of the Vanguard Initiative, to Mediterranean regions, considering both their peculiarities and their bond with other relevant regions for manufacturing.
The cooperation methodology will be governed by clusters, and has been conceived for the design of interregional networks of pilot plants; prior to GREENOMED, it has not been tested in a structured way and on a large scale. GREENOMED is projected towards business support organizations (e.g. clusters), SMEs, research and innovation organizations, institutional regional authorities, and the general public. The focus of the project are the so called “technologies for Green Manufacturing”, defined as all technologies, methodologies and techniques which raise the environmental performances of a production system, improving operative performance at the same time. Today the attention is turned in particularly towards technologies for the management of industrial waste, recycling and the circular economy; technologies for energy efficiency; the reduction of greenhouse gases.
In particular, the project aims at working on two main gaps of the Mediterranean innovation system, especially for SMEs: the lack of accessible innovation infrastructures, such as pilot plants, to support the industrial uptake of “green” products, processes and technologies; and the fragmentation of innovation efforts and resources.
