Women in the Blue Economy - Funding opportunities within the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture FundThe European Commission has launched the “Women in the Blue Economy” call for proposals under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF), code EMFAF-PJG EMFAF Project Grants.
With a EUR 2.5 million budget, the call will help increase the participation of women in the different sectors of the blue economy, such as fisheries, aquaculture, shipbuilding, maritime transport, offshore renewable energy, blue bioeconomy, as well as inland and offshore aquaculture. Up to 2 projects are expected to be funded, with an exceptional co-funding of 90%.
The objective is to overcome the existing constraints in all aspects of the maritime sector, in particular recruitment, training, capacity-building, technical cooperation and promotions, so that every person can fully and safely participate in the activities of the sustainable blue economy.
Each project should be focused on at least three sectors so as to mainstream and expand good practices and activities, from sectors where data is already available and actions have already been taken in terms of gender equality (e.g., shipping, fishing etc.) to sectors where data availability and actions are still limited (e.g., offshore renewable energies, blue bioeconomy, robotics, etc.).
Proposals should ensure the widest possible geographical scope and involve partners across different sea basins. Applicants have to submit their proposal online till 22/09/2022.
