The last week of May, the Blue Bioeconomy ERA-NET Cofund gathered key stakeholders to kick-off a foresight to develop a future European Strategic Knowledge and Innovation agenda within the blue bioeconomy.
On 8-9 March the 19 projects from the BlueBio Cofunded Call, met online for their mid-term meeting. The meeting was the culmination of the mid-term evaluation of the projects, one and a half years into their duration.
After a two-stage evaluation process the BlueBio Call Committee has selected proposals of the 1st additonal call. Proposals focus on supply systems which entail the steps and activities in logistics and transportation from harvest or catch as well as pre-processing activities to ensure the quality of bio-resources.
The 2021 BlueBio call with a budget of approx. 8 million Euro, supported by 9 countries, aims to facilitate research and innovation to underpin sustainable and circular management and use of natural resources.
