Kick-off meeting for the BlueBio Cofunded Projects

Last June a kick-off meeting for the cofunded projects of the first cofund call took place online. All 19 projects were presented on this online meeting. We have now published fact sheets for all these projects here.

The first joint BlueBio call is supported by European 16 countries as well as the EU. All partner countries contributed to the call: Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Sweden. The countries will provide 19 of the € 25 million for the projects, and the European Commission will top up with 6 million euros.
