|Abstract: ||The EU Blue Growth Strategy (2012) is the EU’s long term strategy to support sustainable growth in
the marine and maritime sectors. The Blue Growth Strategy recognises that the
European seas and oceans are central to the European economy with great
potential for innovation, economic growth and job creation. The Blue Growth
Strategy is the Integrated Maritime Policy’s contribution to achieving the goals
of the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
Implementation of the Blue Growth Strategy, including sea-basin strategies
such as the EU Atlantic Action Plan (2014-2020)2, can be supported by EU
co-funding programmes such as Structural and Cohesion Funds (e.g.
INTERREG, Smart Specialisation, etc.), Horizon 2020, European Maritime and
Fisheries Fund (EMFF), etc.
Horizon 2020 (2014-2020)is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union,
a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global
competitiveness. The €80 billion Horizon 2020 Programme (2014-2020) for
research and innovation is part of the drive to create new growth and
jobs in Europe.
Horizon 2020 will tackle societal challenges by helping to bridge the gap
between research and the market by, for example, helping innovative enterprise
to develop their technological breakthroughs into viable products with real
commercial potential. This market-driven approach will include creating
partnerships with the private sector and Member States to bring together the
