POLICY ANSWERS Workshop in Albania: ‘Innovation Management in the Blue Economy’

20 April 2023

POLICY ANSWERS announces the first of 2 workshops on Innovation Management in the Blue Economy.

Workshop 1 Developing Technology and Knowledge based Products and Services

Innovation gives us new products and services. It is the life blood of enterprise competitiveness. It holds the key to addressing many of the challenges we face today for society and environment. It helps traditional industries like ‘fishing’, ‘aquaculture’, ‘tourism’ and ‘waste management’ to evolve and fuse in to a modern ‘Blue Economy’.

Learning to innovate and developing a culture of innovation is important for all organisations including SMEs and non-commercial entities. It contributes to regional competitiveness and employee retention. Managing innovation, including the inherent risks, is key to being a good innovator.

This one day course introduces the basics of innovating to produce products and services but also its role as a management process including risk analysis and culture.
