H2020 Transport: €46 million requested for Blue Growth projects

Creation date: February 15, 2017

INEA has received eight transport research project proposals by yesterday's deadline of the Blue Growth call. The total available budget for the 'High value-added specialised vessel concepts enabling more efficient servicing of emerging coastal and offshore activities' topic is €8 million.

Successful projects are expected to develop novel specialised vessel concepts for offshore activities that are economically viable and environmentally friendly. The concepts should reach a pre-commercial stage of development. Take a look at more detailed call description.

The results of the evaluation will be known no later than 24 May 2017. The selection of projects will be done by external independent experts. These evaluators are drawn from the European Commission's database.

More topics in other Blue Growth fields were open for competition.

The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the profile and would like to be considered for evaluations, please sign up in the Participant Portal.
