The EESC "Smart Islands" project is based on the own-initiative of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on Smart islands TEN/558.
Commissioner Karmenu Vella presented his green-blue portfolio at the meeting of the NAT Section on 6 February.
The "Smart Islands" project is the continuation of the European Economic and Social Committee's (EESC) own-initiative opinion on Smart Islands.
The project aims to engage and exchange with local stakeholders on innovative projects developed locally, which create sustainable growth and, at the same time, job opportunities and competiveness, whilst respecting the environment and cultural heritage".
As outcome of the project, a catalogue of good practices was published in 2017.
