17th International Fairs ECOMONDO and KEY ENERGY Fairs in Rimini (Italy)


Increasing awareness of the offshore wind energy potential for regional development results in the incorporation of the subject into conferences, exhibitions and fairs organised by environmental sector with support of regional and local authorities. On behalf of Rimini Province, partner of the international initiative 4POWER, the Maritime Institute in Gdansk invites all interested parties to participate in the 17th International Fairs of Material and Energy Recovery and Sustainable Development ECOMONDO that will be held on 6 – 9 of November 2013, in Rimini (Italy).

Important part of the Fairs will be constituted by fairs and conference KEY ENERGY addressed to wind energy sector. According to the organizers the event will host a broad representation of the wind energy companies from Italy.

Agenda of KEY ENERGY includes conference dedicated to Offshore Wind Energy at the Adriatic Sea and strategies and tools supporting development of the Offshore Wind Energy in the European Union. Important part of the conference will be presentation of the 4POWER project results, including recommendations of activities to be undertaken by regional authorities and stakeholders in order to support offshore wind energy sector development. Upon completion, the recommendations will be passed to the Committee of Regions. The recommendations may potentially be used at the creation of the development policies addressed to the EU regions. Incorporation of the recommendations into the priorities of development policy may further result in allocation of financial resources to support activities implementing this policy.

Along with KEY ENERGY, the ECOMONDO Fairs will host other branches of environmental protection and communal services, such as:

  • Waste treatment
  • Recycling and services
  • Waste handling and transport
  • Inert waste and demolition
  • Soil reclamation

alt alt

On 15th and16th April2013 in Gdansk the workshop about “Spatial Planning implications of Aquaculture as a new use in the Baltic Sea" was held. The event wasorganized bythe Maritime Institutein Gdansk, as thelead partnerof the PartiSEApateproject realized within theBaltic Sea Region Programme2017-1013.

The meeting brought together42 participantsfrom theBaltic Sea Region. Delegates heardinteresting presentationsof experts fromabroad whoshared theirexperience ofthe widerissues ofaquaculture. Then,a workshop was held, during which an attempt was madeto find answersto the following questions:

a) What are the general expectations, hopes and fears of aquaculture towards MSP?

b) How much space and what type of space should be reserved for aquaculture in the BSR (separately for different types of aquaculture like plants and fish)?

c) With which other uses shall aquaculture look for joint solutions in form of separa-tion or coexistence? Whatcould be possiblesolutions for spatialconflicts?

d) With whom should the aquaculture sector talk in a cross-sectoral dialogue?

Results of the discussionswill becompiledin a reportthat, after consultation with the participants ofthe workshop will bepublishedon the PartiSEApate project website.

We encourage youto read theworkshop’s presentations.
