The European Commission has launched a new call for proposals under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) with EU co-funding of EUR 2.6 million. The subject of the call is improving scientific knowledge to strengthen the science basis of management decisions under the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
The overall aim of the call is to promote the development and the strengthening of the scientific knowledge needed for fisheries conservation and management measures in support of the CFP. The priorities related to this call are the reinforcement of policy-oriented fisheries science, a better use of the collected scientific data, as well as improved cooperation between scientists and the fisheries sector. The call also focuses on the support to the EU scientific community to develop and maintain the relevant expertise to provide high quality scientific advice on fisheries matters.
Applicants have to submit their proposal electronically via the Funding & Tenders Portal Electronic Submission System
