Technology transfer and eco-innovation for the marine and environmental management of port areas in Macaronesia

The objective of the ECOMARPORT project is to promote marine and maritime R&D and innovation in European and African Macaronesia by creating an operational network of environmental and marine observation of water and air quality in ports (eco-ports in Macaronesia). This will be achieved via the development and use of the latest in sustainable technology, the creation of useful products and tools for its users, and through the co-operation and appropriate and efficient technology transfer between the public and private sectors in the field of marine and maritime science and technology, promoting business opportunities within the context of Blue Growth.

To this end, ECOMARPORT will include innovative technological developments through new measurement instruments, services and tools for environmental management and impact assessment, making it possible to validate results, products and services in terms of their social and management value.
