The meeting took place as part of European Maritime Day (EMD) - an annual two-day event where Europe’s maritime community comes together to network, discuss and forge joint action on maritime affairs and the sustainable blue economy.
- Water pollution
The online workshop focused on two pertinent issues: marine litter and navigation/shipping.
It showcased LIFE’s flexibility in three key areas:
- Using a broad range of tools from technologically innovative projects to best-practice and awareness-raising.
- Flexible funding options from small and focused traditional projects to larger national or regional strategic Integrated Projects.
- Diverse stakeholders from single beneficiaries to large consortia involving public authorities, academia, industry, etc.
The session also presented a selection of excellent LIFE projects that could be replicated by other stakeholders requiring funding to address a multitude of maritime pollution topics.
Interactive tools encouraged audience involvement during the Q&A session.
