ADRIREEF has the ambition to combine innovative actions related to natural and artificial Adriatic reefs with possible socio- economic impacts originated from activities such as aquaculture and tourism, two sectors of Blue Economy. As the success of activities strongly depends on the structural and ecological performance of the reefs (both natural and artificial), the project will also include setting up and testing of suitable technologies with low impact for underwater monitoring. A White paper on the exploitation of Adriatic reefs will also include a specific plan for future funding projects in the forthcoming programming period 2021-2028.
