OCTA Innovation Issue 7 / 2017 – Bonaire

The European Commission has signed a pilot project for Bonaire.

Dianne Boelmans, our Innovation Manager, who is an advisor wthin the government of Bonaire, has played a major role in bringing the pilot project to fruition, as well as mobilising all stakeholders behind innovation and steering other activities of OCTA Innovation on the island.

The pilot project is a collaboration between Bonaire and Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR), a leading institution in this field. It will assist the implementation of bio-technology for stand-alone production of algal products, consequently increasing food production, generating income and jobs and diversifying the economy.
Vendredi 17 février dernier, le BRUZZ consacré à Saint-Barthélemy lors de l’évènement Saint-Barth Smart Island a permis de bien présenter ce Pays et Territoire d’Outremer (PTOM) des Caraïbes et ses enjeux actuels au public de Bruxelles. Le succès de ce BRUZZ a ainsi mis l’accent sur le caractère unique de cette île et aussi de renforcer les liens entre les PTOM et l’Union Européenne, comme en témoigne la participation exceptionnelle des fonctionnaires européens.
