The BlueMed Implementation Plan, drafted in June 2020, is now final and available on the BlueMed website – November 10, 2020 It presents the thematic and structuring activities to be developed in order to ignite a transformative process at Mediterranean level, addressing the shared research-based priority goals preliminarily agreed by the countries. Each priority, closely linked to a key challenge in the shared BlueMed Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, comes
with an “operational receipt” to reach the priority goal and with a set of Strategic Actions, i.e. larger and medium-long term initiatives and activities, with specific scientific or structural content that require strong commitment and additional dedicated resources from research funders; moreover, for each Strategic Action a proposal of feasible promotional actions is reported. Following the launch of the Panoramed Innovation Project on Blue Bioeconomy towards a strategic Alliance for Blue Bioeconomy in the Mediterranean as key strategic action under the priority on blue biotech and of the EASME-MSP-MED project on Data for MSP: Mediterranean MSP Knowledge Catalogue towards effective Marine Spatial Planning, the aim now is to further develop joint strategic actions! Thus, the Implementation Plan will be disseminated as large as possible to policy-makers and stakeholders, including civil society in the various Mediterranean countries. In particular, research funders will be the key targeted. Due to the movement limitations connected with the pandemics, the planned BlueMed event gathering the research funders will be replaced by remote interactions at national level to discuss the available opportunities to concretise actions for the improvement of shared Blue growth in the Mediterranean. The BLUEMED Initiative aims to advance a shared vision for a more healthy, productive, resilient, better known and valued Mediterranean Sea, promoting the citizens’ social well-being and prosperity, now and for future generations, and boosting economic growth and jobs.
