The main aim of Innonautics is to strengthen the innovation capacities of SMEs in the nautical sector thanks to the spreading of innovative solutions and creating transnational cooperation initiatives, allowing a key sector for the insular Mediterranean economy to be modernised. It involves the creation of a Technology Platform to increase knowledge and competitiveness and strengthen the implementation of pilot programmes at nautical sector enterprises.

Insuleur is a project partner.



The main aim of the project is to obtain political commitment from a large number of European insular authorities to reduce CO2 emissions by over 20% by 2020, in signing an obligatory statement (Isle Pact) and putting into place a well-coordinated series of plans, activities and preparatory projects to attain this objective.


ORATE/ESPON Project - EUROISLANDS Study: ‘The Development of Islands - European Islands and Cohesion Policy'


Coordinated by the Aegean University under the supervision of the Greek Ministry of the Economy and carried out within the framework of the EPSON 2013 programme, this study aims to develop political recommendations allowing the objectives of economic, social and territorial cohesion to be performed within a sustainable development prism.

This study aims to respond to three fundamental questions:

- What is the situation of European islands within the context of sustainable development?
- What are the causes of this situation? (Use of the attractiveness concept)
- What are the most appropriate policies to improve this island attractiveness and ensure advances respond to the demands of sustainable development?


INSULEUR is taking part in the production of this study.


The final report is planned for the end of 2010.
