Cross-border project: Italy - Maritime France 2013 - 2015
SERENA 2.0. is a cross-border cooperation project between French and Italian regions (Genoa, La Spezia, Pisa, Lucca, Cagliari, Sassari and Ajaccio).
Its general objective is to develop two cross-border networks, one on employment and one on education and vocational training. It is intended to improve the quality and quantity of access to public services by citizens and companies, and to promote the expansion of training and employment opportunities. It involves specific action to stimulate cross-border mobility, encourage economic integration in the nautical sector, and institutional integration in the fields of active labour policies, education, and training.
One of the main objectives of Serena 2.0 is the creation of a cross-border network of highly specialised marine technology training centres, located in Liguria, Sardinia, Corsica, and Tuscany.
DLTM established a centre for Liguria, located in La Spezia, to provide training in vessel engineering and design. This is located at the ITS Nuove Tecnologie per il Made in Italy, at Via Doria 2. The Serena Laboratory is equipped with advanced nautical design hardware and software, including cloud-based applications developed as part of the INNAUTIC project.
