YENESIS brings on board islands from 8 countries (Cyprus, Greece, Croatia, Norway, Estonia, Portugal, Spain and Italy) from all across Europe and, thus, creating a pan-European island collaboration. Regardless of differences in size and population, partner islands face common territorial challenges concerning economies of scale, resource limitations and vulnerability to climate changes. The transnational cooperation will open up a wider market to the young entrepeneurs of the beneficiary partners.
