Women in the Blue Economy projects ready to start : Think Big, go Blue!

Following the call for proposals on Women in the Blue Economy European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) has awarded EU grants to two projects with the objective of bridging the gender gap in the blue economy. The projects, funded under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) kicked off on 1 May.

Among the key activities, the projects will emphasise women's participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers while collecting data to evaluate gender inclusivity and address the underlying causes of the underrepresentation of women in various sectors of the blue economy.
