Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership

The Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership (SBEP) aims to design, steer and support a just and inclusive transition to a regenerative, resilient and sustainable blue economy, boosting the transformation needed towards a climate-neutral, sustainable, productive and competitive EU by 2030. The SBEP will deliver solutions to strengthen EU and international science-policy interfaces in marine- and maritime-related domains of the EU Green Deal and Digital Europe strategies through aligning national, regional and EU R&I priorities bringing together science, industry, policy and society. It will also contribute to accelerate the post-pandemic recovery and resilience.

Through this Partnership, the Azores aim to strength their regional public policy for the sea, namely in terms of innovation. The implementation of activities may be geared to regional interests and priorities in this area, in conjunction with the Regional Directorate for Maritime Policies/Regional Secretariat for the Sea and Fisheries.
