This call for proposals aims to support strategic transnational partnerships to develop joint roadmaps at sea basin level in order to coordinate investments for innovation in a specific high potential blue growth technology, domain or value chain.

Priorities and funded actions:

– to maximise synergies between existing strategic roadmaps for research, technology and innovation at sea basin level
– to coordinate funding for priority investments
– to make the best use of existing financial instruments at EU level (e.g. Horizon 2020, ERDF and EFSI, EIB) and at national/regional levels

Among financed actions
– Develop a joint roadmap including an investment plan for a promising blue growth technology area, domain or value chain at sea basin level
– Mobilise public-private partnerships that will develop two to three bankable/ready-to-invest demonstration projects
– Organise workshops and matchmaking events to develop, scope out and fine tune roadmaps and to create public-private partnerships for joint investments in demonstration projects
– Provide support to the public-private partnerships in terms of mentoring, coaching, training, investment readiness support, other advisory and financial planning support (e.g. through technical assistance vouchers)
– Undertake activities that will increase the likelihood of market uptake from the demonstration projects
