This share amounts to €292 million for the period 2014-2020 – roughly 4.5% of the overall European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (€6.4 billion) – and has been devoted to the most pressing issues (both environmental and economic) that our seas are facing today.

Press Release: Investment platform recommendation

The European Commission adopted the Blue Growth Strategy in 2012 in order to harness the potential of Europe’s oceans, seas and coasts for growth and jobs. Since the adoption of the strategy, the Blue Economy has become a driver for Europe’s welfare and prosperity. Europe’s maritime economy is expected to become an even more significant source of jobs and growth in the years to come. However, despite concerted efforts by the European Union to increase funding for Blue Economy actors, access to funding with acceptable terms remains a key obstacle for innovative businesses.

Press Release: Mapping Europe’s blue biotech potential

In the past years, European regions have focused on developing Smart Specialisation strategies to respond to the need for transformation and modernisation of their economy. As an innovative and emerging sector, the Blue Bioeconomy offers for many regions a strong potential to tap into new resources, while reducing dependency on overexploited ones, and to halt the decline of traditional economic sectors.

Press Release: Commissioner Vella on the future of the Blue Bioeconomy in Europe

The European Commission will announce its renewed Bioeconomy Strategy in the coming month. Bioeconomy in Europe is already composed of well-establoshed sectors, mostly on land. The potential of the Blue Bioeconomy remains largely untapped, inspite of its riches, and of the many research projects that are now able to turn discoveries into actual products. We asked Commissioner Vella, in charge of Environment, Maritime Affairs, and Fisheries, to describe the European Commission’s vision for the Blue Bioeconomy sector in the coming years.
