In the context of EXPO Dubai 2020, the World Trade Center Trieste supported UNIDO ITPO Italy in promoting the "Blue Innovation Hub" initiative, engaging innovative Italian companies providing solutions in the field of the Blue Economy.

This collaboration was made possible thanks to the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), that establishes a framework for cooperations between the Partners to achieve their common objectives.

The "Blue Innovation Hub" initiative brings together experts, academia, research enters, startups, and SMEs to explore innovative solutions and design-thinking tools and technologies for a sustainable Blue Growth sector.
