Priorities and funded actions

* Advancing the supply systems in the blue bioeconomy value chains: to advance the blue bioeconomy further, research and innovation therefore need to increase its focus on the supply systems of Europe’s blue bioeconomy value chains, to unlock its full potential;
* Responsible Research and Innovation: to respond to the need for building competence and skills;
* Human capacity building: to facilitate the transfer of projects’ results to society (particularly, to scientific educators, science-policy makers and industry actors), for their further use/implementation in future programs at local, national or EU level in order to improve the use bio- based products and related services to the market and to prepare a new generation of marine biotechnologists;
* Communication: to ensure effective dissemination of research findings

* Advancing supply systems;
* Responsible Research and Innovation;
* Human capacity building;
* Communication

Amongst financed actions
* Advancing supply systems
– Enable better transmission of relevant biomass information throughout the value chain to support traceability and quality monitoring;
– Deliver knowledge about potential measures in the value chain which can enhance food-based products and feeds;
– Advance approaches, which improve the provisioning of consistent quality and quantity of biomass to the value chains;
– Advance pre-processing options and approaches, which can assure quality characterization and preservation of both present and new types of biomasses as near as possible to the harvesting activity;
– Develop solutions that reduce production of waste from blue bioeconomy value chains;
– Reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the supply systems, while maintaining or improving the quality of the biomasses;
– Reduce the environmental footprint in the whole supply chain and enhance the adoption and use of circular / co-farming systems;
– Improve the ability in the supply system aspects to take advantage of the inherent seasonality in the availability of the bio-resources;
– Improve the ability in the supply system aspects to take advantage of the diversity of the bio-resources

* Responsible Research and Innovation
– Involvement of stakeholders in dialogues to make informed decisions about safe, healthy and sustainable food;
– Societal matters and public attitudes towards bio-based products and services to develop acceptable products and services in the markets;
– Policymaking in bio-based research, innovation and technology development;
– Improving the professional skills and competences of those working and being trained to work within the blue bioeconomy;
– Training and mobility of personnel

* Human capacity building: training and mobility activities

* Communication: scientific publication and user-oriented communication activities
