Kick off seminar KIMERAA project
6-7 May 2010, Galway (Ireland)
The kick-off meeting of the Project KIMERAA – Knowledge transfer to Improve Marine Economy in Regions from the Atlantic Area (Priority 1.1) approved under the second call for projects will take place in Galway (Ireland) on the 6 and 7 May 2010.
The KIMERAA project is lead by the University of the Algarve (Portugal) and aims to develop niches of Excellence through the creation of bridges between the scientific knowledge and firms related with marine resources.
To this goal is necessary to articulate knowledge transfer channels in the regions in the Atlantic area, connecting the different institutional actors that can intervene in the Marine Economy. The project tries to tackle the transnational problem, known as the European Paradox, the difficulty of European research to be transformed in profitable high added-value products.
