Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK) invites for an event in the framework of the ‘Science meets Regions’ pilot project by JRC, funded by the European Parliament. The topic of the event is coastal and maritime tourism as Blue Growth is one of the most important emerging themes in the regional development. Coastal and maritime tourism represents a major economic asset for the region, but also entails significant social and environmental consequences in the long-term. The event will discuss ways to develop the sector in a sustainable way. The event is organised in close cooperation with the Regional Council of Satakunta, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the Foundation for European Sustainable Tourism.
