19 new sustainable blue projects have been pre-selected for funding by the European Commission under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). They will share €14.5 million. The grant agreements are currently being prepared for signature.

These projects are the results of a selection made under a call for proposal launched to accelerate the deployment of a sustainable blue economy across the EU and the Mediterranean.

They will work on the following topics: innovation (de-risking investment in demonstration projects), environment (fighting marine litter and restoring ecosystems), cooperation for a sustainable blue economy and better ocean governance in the Mediterranean sea basin.

LEAPWind, a project between Ireland and the Netherlands is a Leading Edge Advanced Protection using novel thermoplastic materials and processes for offshore Wind turbine lades. LEAPWind aims to commercialise a novel component that tackles offshore wind turbine blade erosion at manufacturing stage, to increase productivity of turbines and reduce maintenance and repair costs.
