On 21st October 2015, BlueBRIDGE partecipated to the ICT 2015 networking session "Supporting the digital transformation of European fisheries communities" in Lisbon, Portugal.

The session focused on bridging the digital gap in fisheries communities and on how the fisheries sector can take advantage of digital technology and communication, in order to narrow the distance to the final consumer, increase traceability and add value to their catch without increasing fishing effort.

Sara Garavelli, Trust-IT Services & BlueBRIDGE Outreach Manager, explained how the BlueBRIDGE underlying infrastructure can support local small fisheries communities collecting maintaining and disseminating data. In addition Sara gave some examples of  commercial exploitation of the infrastructure.
