ECONOMY

Background

The Euroregion will build a sustainable, competitive, circular economy by 2030 that is carbon-neutral and based on digital transition.

To achieve that aim, its objectives for 2030 are:

A ground-breaking circular economy
  • The euroregional circular economy must be one of the leaders in Europe:
    • increasing the value of resources through the prevention of waste generation, re-use, re-manufacture and recycling, particularly of textiles, plastics and electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE);
    • giving priority to integrated management of the water cycle (management, preservation and quality…).
Integrated euroregional management
  • The Euroregion will prioritise integrated management of its territory, inland and coastal, preferentially based on the responsible blue economy, which means:
    • integrated management across inland, coastal and island areas of the Euroregion;
    • key sustainable industries: produce of the sea, blue biotechnology, understanding coastal areas, coastal management, renewable energy, including hydrogen for sea transport.
The key strategic sectors

The Euroregion will prioritise a transformed circular economy based round three key strategic industries:

  • the bio-economy: the Euroregion will support development of the bio-economy to become a sustainable region with food sovereignty;
  • health: cooperation is essential to make the euroregional health sector a leader in Europe, based in part on a new silver economy around E-health, bio-health, and health and biodiversity…
  • travel and tourism: the Euroregion is committed to ensuring that as a holiday destination, the leading destination in the world, it remains healthy, safe, resilient and competitive.
