The project, which had Informest as lead partner, dealt with the mobility of students from the Italian and Croatian nautical and technical institutes involved in 45 days of intercultural exchanges and professional training in alternation school-work.

The experience of BLUE KEP represented the third stage of a multi-year path dedicated to school mobility started with KEPASS, as part of the IPA Adriatic 2007-2013 program, and continued with the BlueSKILLS project, always part of the IPA Adriatic program, projects carried out with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region as leader of the partnership in collaboration with Informest.

The role was recognized in the project to work in favor of synergies in territorial cooperation in the blue economy by offering, through the results achieved, stimuli for the transfer of knowledge between the two educational systems and the economic sectors of the two countries, representing a significant point of reference for similar initiatives to be implemented at a macro-regional level.

During the conference, the partnership composed of Informest, the Marche Region, the Adriatic-Ionian Euroregion, the Istrian Region, the development agencies of Split and Sibenik, presented the results reached by the project activities concerning the mobility of 38 students of 12 schools and the definition of the methodology for the standardization of school curricula and the recognition of acquired skills.

Some of the students participating in mobility have also expressed their point of view on the importance of this experience abroad.
