The project MeDryDive, co-funded by the Cosme Programme of the EU, will present the 2nd International Conference “Dive in Blue Growth” in the Promotion of Accessible Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites, that is organized under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports and is going to be held virtually from Wednesday, 12 to Friday, 14 May, 2021.
The 2nd International Conference in 2021 follows the successful outcomes of the “Dive in Blue Growth” International Conference held in Athens in October 2019 in the framework of the Interreg MED 2014-2020 BLUEMED project. It brought together 55 speakers and more than 300 participants from 11 countries around the world, who discussed about issues related to the protection and management of the Accessible Underwater Cultural and Natural Heritage sites.
The 2nd International Conference “Dive in Blue Growth” focuses on the following topics:
1. Technologies and approaches for the in-situ promotion of Accessible Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites.
2. Dry dive technologies to make the Underwater Cultural Heritage accessible to all.
3. Examples of promotion and protection of Accessible Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites.
4. The response of the public to the promotion of the Accessible Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites through the application of new technologies.
The programme welcomes speakers from different countries in the Mediterranean, across and beyond Europe including researchers, universities, competent authorities and management bodies of AUCHS and relevant stakeholders.
The great response to the call for abstracts has formed a three-day agenda including 40 presentations.
