The Centre will examine EU policies in the domain of the blue economy and their impact beyond the EU, particularly the Mediterranean as the EU’s immediate neighbourhood. Results will be presented in peer reviewed journals and a research conference will be organised.

The Centre will develop a competency framework in the area of sustainable blue economy aiming to shape the education for

sustainable blue economy across the region and offer trainings for mid-career scholars and master students. 

The Centre will ensure a science-policy exchange at the EU level and through specifically designed local debates. Additionally, we will seek to engage the public through artistic events.
