This event aimed to present the latest results of the project: the recommendations, market research or video produced in the project. Emphasis has also been put on pilot actions implemented in the framework of the project; especially for Brest this means the training directory, skills and crafts made by the European University Institute of the Sea for greater readability of the training supply and existing businesses in the industry.
The project results were also themes of presentations at the local level, especially during the press trip organized within the framework of the « Charte d’Internationalisation du
Finistère » or during the Blue Days organized by the Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique.
