Nineteen projects are selected for funding in response to the Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership’s first co-funded call ‘The way forward: a thriving sustainable blue economy for a brighter future.’
“With the selection of the first projects, the Partnership family is extended and on track to deliver on our ambitious objectives,” says Margherita Cappelletto, the Partnership Coordinator at the Italian Ministry of Research and Universities.
Collectively, the 19 selected projects address all the five Priority Areas of the call. Priority Area 3 “Climate-neutral, environmentally sustainable, and resource-efficient blue food and feed” had mobilised the strongest response, accounting for 12 of the 19 projects selected.
Project partners come from 21 different countries, including EU Member States, Associated Countries, and third countries.
The below list shows the acronym and title of the 19 projects selected for funding. For more information on priority area, consortium members, and project abstract please consult this detailed description.
