Innovative ecosystems and start-ups in the Mediterranean

The Regional Government of Andalucia represents AEBR in the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM) since its constitution on the initiative of the CoR in 2010.

How has COVID-19 transformed the relationships between the different actors of the ecosystem and what new challenges and opportunities have arisen?

2. Do you know of any good practices or success cases among entrepreneurship, innovation and technology investment ecosystems within or outside your region or city that could be exportable at regional level in the Mediterranean?

3. Do you consider that there are initiatives underway at institutional level at supranational, national, regional or local level that can strengthen the ecosystem of entrepreneurship, innovation and technological investment in the Mediterranean?

4. What recommendations do you think ARLEM can offer to strengthen and achieve greater integration in the entrepreneurship, innovation and technological investment ecosystems in the Mediterranean?
