Cooperation MS Fiche
Cooperation in Portugal is considered a tool to allow the FLAGs to bring together the knowledge and capacity of different actors for a common objective. Both national and transnational cooperation are seen as a way of helping achieve the strategic objectives of the FLAGs. As such, support for cooperation will focus on fostering the exchange of knowledge and information between different organisations, with the aim of resolving common problems and putting into practice ideas that produce benefits that go beyond a single FLAG area.
Thematic priorities include supporting short circuits for local seafood products, pesca-tourism, the sustainable use of resources, fisheries identity and fostering new coastal activities.
A total budget of €346 000 is held by the MA for cooperation projects: €104 575 for national cooperation and €261 438 for transnational cooperation. There is also €20 000 foreseen for networking and support activities to help support Portuguese FLAGs undertake cooperation.
