A €14.5 million call to foster a "Sustainable Blue Economy"

 
The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund launches a call to foster a "Sustainable Blue Economy". With a total budget of € 14.5 million, the call will accelerate the implementation of the European maritime policy and the deployment of the blue economy across Europe and in the Mediterranean. 
 
EMFF's Info Day will be open to all sea basins surrounding the EU coasts and will target a wide range of stakeholders on 9 November 2017, 9:00 -17:30 in the Borschette Conference Center, Rue Froissart 36, Brussels 
 
 
The launch of this call is an important concrete step to implement key Commission policy initiatives such as the Communication from the Commission: 
 

- Innovation in the Blue Economy: realising the potential of our seas and oceans for jobs and growth;

- Initiative for the sustainable development of the blue economy in the western Mediterranean (WestMED) and

- Communication on International Ocean Governance
