SAVE THE DATE for the Info Day on Blue careers and Regional flagships calls for proposals!
An Info Day about two new calls for proposals under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) takes place on 24 November 2022. The two calls are “Blue careers for a sustainable blue economy” and “Regional flagships projects supporting sustainable blue economy in EU sea basins”. They are both expected to be open from 23 October 2022 until 31 January 2023.
With a budget of around € 7 million, the Blue careers call aims to contribute to the development of the next generation of blue skills and to provide opportunities for attractive, sustainable maritime careers.
The regional flagship call, with a budget of around € 6 million, will focus on EU sea basins cooperation, in particular in the Atlantic, the Black Sea, the Mediterranean and the Baltic Sea Region. It will address six different topics: diversification of fisheries activities, marine pollution, sustainable transport, maritime clusters, sustainable tourism and ocean farming.
Speakers from CINEA and DG MARE will present the application process for the EMFAF calls, providing tips and tricks on how to write a successful proposal. They will also explain how to prepare a legacy plan to continue the project after the end of the grant. Finally, participants will have the chance to take part in matchmaking sessions to find new partners.
Registrations and draft agenda will be available in September. For now, please mark your calendar!
