The Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership is a Horizon Europe co-funded partnership. It constitutes a network of 60 Partner institutions from 25 countries and the European Commission that enables an unprecedent effort to pool research and innovation investments and align national programmes at pan-European scale, taking into consideration the sea-basin (Mediterranean, Black Sea, Baltic and North Sea) and Atlantic Ocean dimension.

The partnership is focusing to boost the transformation towards a climate-neutral, sustainable, productive and competitive blue economy by 2030, while creating and supporting the conditions for a healthy ocean for the people by 2050. Achieving this vision through cooperation will enable addressing key EU policy objectives of Green transition, digital transformation and recovery and ultimately contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

With its ambition to make a major step in transforming the blue economy, the Partnership will actively seek engagement by launching, implementing and monitoring six co-funded calls for research and innovation proposals over a seven-year timeframe.

The first Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership call for proposals will be launched on 13 February 2023!

Intervention Areas will be at the core of the thematic priorities of the call:

  • IA #1: Ocean Digital Twins at sub- sea-basin scale
  • IA #2: Blue generation marine structures
  • IA #3: Planning and managing sea-uses
  • IA #4: Healthy ‘Blue Food’ under a ’One Health’ approach
  • IA #5: Enabling the green transition of ‘Blue Food’ production
