Between 2014 and 2019, the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund has financed many new ideas all over Europe to support both fisheries and the blue economy. It has helped many innovative projects thrive while helping in coordinating maritime cooperation across borders. The newly published brochure presents an overview of some of these disruptive projects working to protect oceans and their health.
Invasive seaweeds turned into cosmetics and aquaculture feed. Drones scanning litter on European beaches. New sustainable farming methods that do not affect marine resources. These are just few of the disruptive projects that have received funding over the past years.
