Alessandro Pititto

Spoken language Italian

Alessandro has developed a ten-year experience in the sectors of Fisheries and Maritime Policy, having worked on several projects funded by DG MARE and DG MOVE of the European Commission.

He has been involved in data collection and management, specialising in the integration between sources from different EU and non-EU countries.

Since September 2013, he is the coordinator of EMODnet Human Activities, a portal funded by the European Commission with an interactive map showing the location and characteristics of human activities in the marine environment.

Recently, he has been focusing on algae and seaweed products, also thanks to the coordination of the study "Blue bioeconomy: Situation report and perspective", within the EUMOFA project, on which he has been working since 2010.

His most important experiences include a study on environmental charging schemes applied by European ports (commissioned by DG MOVE) and a market study on maritime renewable energies (commissioned by DG MOVE): two projects that have had a wide echo in research and industry alike.

He is regularly invited as a speaker at conferences, symposia and presentations on maritime policy issues.

A native Italian speaker, he has perfect command of English and Spanish.
