Blue Growth in Action: European Maritime and Fisheries Fund

15 innovative new blue growth projects funded through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) will be present at European Maritime Day this year - all of which are winners of the blue career, blue labs and blue technology calls. 

European Maritime Day (EMD) is the key annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and forge joint action. This year, the EMD 2017 conference and exhibition will take place from 18-19 May 2017 in Poole, in the UK, with up to 1000 participants expected.

The objective of the EMFF-funded projects being present at the EMD 2017 is to network, have visibility and take advantage of being at the biggest gathering of maritime stakeholders in Europe.
