The aim of FAME is to foster the development of the Common Monitoring and Evaluation System (CMES) established by Article 107 of the EMFF Regulation.
Like all the European Structural and Investment Funds, the EMFF adopted a reinforced result-orientation for the period 2014-2020. This includes monitoring of the effectiveness of supported projects in order to demonstrate that the EMFF delivers results that go beyond mere financial consumption.
FAME supports the European Commission and the Member States in building capacity across all components of the CMES. It also ensures that effective and efficient systems are in place to deliver the information required by the Common Provision Regulation (CPR) and the EMFF Regulation.
The FAME support unit was established in 2015 to comply with the following objectives:
To achieve these objectives, the FAME support unit produces background papers and working papers on EMFF topics as well as reports and stories illustrating the use of the EMFF. The FAME support unit also provides hands-on support to the EMFF monitoring and evaluation community through tailored workshops, presentations, needs assessments, peer reviews and trainings.
The FAME support unit brings together a network of experts with a wide range of relevant professional experience. The core team of the FAME support unit is based in Brussels and provides support at EU level and in the Member States.

Legislation on structural measures (EUR-Lex)
Summaries of EU legislation:
Following the unprecedented outbreak of the coronavirus, the European Commission has taken rapid action to protect the fisheries and aquaculture sectors from severe shocks by introducing specific measures, including amendments to the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
With many Covid-19 restrictions lifted, millions of Europe’s anglers can finally go fishing again. It’s a popular hobby, bringing billions of euros to Europe’s coastal economies. But there is a catch. Critics say unrestricted fishing threatens vulnerable species and can interfere with other marine sectors. How can they find common ground?
