The marine and maritime sectors: the BLUEMED initiative documents now online
The documents of BLUEMED, the initiative under Italian leadership that aims to promote a common strategy to support a sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors in EU Member States of the Mediterranean Basin, are available below.
As a priority of the Italian Presidency of the EU Council, the initiative, led by Italy, has been developed jointly with Cyprus, Croatia, France, Greece, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain. The European Commission promoted and supported the implementation of the initiative, in particular through the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, and the Joint Research Centre.
The BLUEMED initiative has established its "vision" and, more recently, its "strategic agenda for research and innovation". The two documents, including their annexes, are now available on the ResearchItaly website and will be updated in their stages of development.
