Ten blue growth projects are to receive grants under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) as part of the 'Blue Careers' and 'Blue Labs' calls for proposals. In total, 125 proposals were evaluated by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) which manages the projects.

The 'Blue Careers' call (€3.45 million) aims at boosting skills and enhancing career opportunities in the maritime economy.

The 'Blue Labs' call (€1.7 million) aims at supporting multidisciplinary initiatives involving young researchers to bring research results to the market.

Final grant agreements are likely to be signed in February.

The three Blue Growth calls for proposals were announced in 2016, with a total budget of more than €7.5 million. The third call, on Blue Technology, is still being evaluated.
