European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) Info Day

European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) Info Day

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 opened on 13 October 2022, with the deadline on 31 January 2023. 

The info day will take place both in person at the Conference Centre Albert Borschette, Rue Froissart 36, Brussels, and online. 

With a budget of € 7.5 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 € 7.6 million, will focus on EU sea basins cooperation, in particular in the Atlantic, the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea Region and the EU Outermost Regions. 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.

Registration for this event is possible until 16 November. For more information and to register, please see here.
