Information about the RFP/EoI submission

Scope of RFP: Projects are sought across the full range of blue economy activities, including – but not limited to – areas of interest highlighted by recent workshops and the Transitioning to a blue economy. These areas are listed in the RFP, but it is not exhaustive and other innovative ideas are encouraged. No specific weighting will be accredited to these topics over and above other innovative proposals.

Out of scope – Research that aims to identify, quantify or map economic marine resources; research that repeats research conducted in other areas; and education and outreach activities.
