The Erasmus + Ecoblue Tourism project, coordinated by the FUE-UJI, aims to increase entrepreneurship opportunities in blue ecotourism in coastal countries and improve the entrepreneurial skills of long-term unemployed young people who want to develop their own ideas and businesses in this sector. After its two years of implementation, the Ecoblue Tourism project publishes in its fourth newsletter with the results and activities of the project.
FUE-UJI has participated presenting the Erasmus+ Ecoblue Tourism project in the 3rd session of the cycle “European Funds 2021 2027” organised by EuropeDirect Castellón. This 3rd session of the cycle focuses on presenting the European Funding Funds for private entities and companies, as well as success stories financed in different European programmes aimed at these audiences, as is the case of the Ecoblue Tourism project.
The conference held on Thursday 11 March was opened by Pau Ferrando, Deputy for Economic Promotion, Employment and Internationalisation of the Provincial Council of Castelló, who highlighted the importance of going hand in hand with companies that have much to offer the EU in terms of sustainability and digitisation. Angel Adell, CEO of Euradia, then presented the different financing options for private entities and companies through the European Financing Funds: “European funds require an access strategy and knowledge of all the available financing mechanisms”.
Success stories have been presented by the Centro Nacional de Experimentación de Tecnologías de Hidrógeno y Pilas de Combustible (CNH2) with the Interreg SUDOE IMPROVEMENT project, the Fundación Empresa Universidad Galicia (FEUGA) with the H2020 Soil diver agro project, GFM Fotovoltaica with the FEDER Aliena project and Fundación Universitat Jaume I-Empresa de Castelló (FUE-UJI) with the Erasmus+ Ecoblue Tourism project.
The Ecoblue Tourism project on training in entrepreneurship in the blue and sustainable tourism sector presented at the conference the keys for the preparation of proposals in the Erasmus+ call for proposals. The session also presented the consortium that forms the project and the different activities it carries out, its adaptation of contents and training to COVID-19, as well as the expected results of this project that ends next August after two years of implementation.
The European and International Projects Office of FUE-UJI will organise two online events to celebrate the European Erasmus Days on 15, 16 and 17 October. The Erasmus Days, a European initiative, consists of three days of celebrating the Erasmus + programme in Europe and beyond. It is an opportunity to organize an event, share your Erasmus experience or spread the word about your project. EuroFUE-UJI has organised two online events for this purpose, in which it will inform about the Ecoblue Tourism and CIA Projects, two projects that it coordinates.
These online events will take place next Friday 16th October through a live video on the Facebook profile of both the CIA project and Ecoblue Tourism project. These events will be open to all interested online users. The Discover more about Local Intergenerational Civic Councils event will be held at 11am, while the Discover more about Ecoblue Tourism event is scheduled to take place at 12pm, Central European Time.
Both events will introduce a brief presentation of each project, its website and its objectives, followed by a game through the Facebook live videos allowing the participants to learn more about the projects by playing and answering questions about them in a dynamic and fun way. These events organised by EuroFUE-UJI are available on the official website of the European Erasmus Days 2020, as well as all the initiatives scheduled for this year’s online edition.
