The Conference, co-organised by Eurisy and the CRPM, hosted by the Puglia Region, brought together Local and Regional authorities interested in maritime issues and blue economy. Operational cases of satellite applications in coastal regions have been showcased.

The European Union’s blue economy represents 5.4 million jobs and a gross added value of just under €500 billion per year. Coastal regions and cities are indeed drivers of European growth. However, conflicts between sea uses and demands for sea space are increasing, in particular due to emerging offshore activities. There is thus a need for tools that enable growth by facilitating the coexistence of multiple activities, and organise coastal management.

Blue Thread, together with the Marine Protected Area of Tremiti Islands (Parco del Gargano), presented its BluePASS Mobile Application for automatic access control to Marine Reserves.
