EUR 2.5 million in EU funding available for a new EMFAF MSP call


Today, May 7th, 2024, the European Commission launched a new call for proposals under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) with EU co-funding of up to EUR 2.5 million. The objective of this call for proposals is to facilitate the implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning in the North Seas.

This call is intended to fund projects developing innovative responses to tackle specific challenges that EU Member States might encounter when putting into effect, monitoring and/or revising their maritime spatial plans.

Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) is a fundamental tool for the development of a Sustainable Blue Economy. It allows us to sustainably manage the use of our seas and oceans, to reduce conflicts, create synergies between human activities and ensure they take place in an efficient and safe way.

The Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) Directive entered into force in September 2014 and established a set of common minimum requirements. It represents an overarching governance framework for EU Member States, which were required to adopt maritime spatial plans by 31 March 2021 in all EU marine waters.

Only one project is expected to be funded. The deadline to apply is 11 June 2024 at 17:00 (CEST).
