    UK - FLAG Cooperation in the UK

    02/02/2017
    United Kingdom
    Cooperation is organized differently in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales - at Regional level in Scotland and England, while Wales and Northern Ireland leave cooperation up to the FLAGs to organize. The programme authorities are keen that cooperation projects come from the bottom up so, along with the fact that there is little experience in FLAG cooperation in the UK, they foresee that any cooperation projects are likely to emerge later in the programming period.

    SI - FLAG Cooperation in Slovenia

    02/02/2017
    Slovenia
    FLAG cooperation in Slovenia is mandatory and all FLAGs had to foresee it in their strategies. In the period 2007-2013 there was only one FLAG in Slovenia, covering the coastal area, but in 2014-2020 there are also three new FLAGs in inland areas.

    PL - FLAG Cooperation in Poland

    02/02/2017
    Poland
    Cooperation activities are not mandatory in the Polish EMFF programme, but FLAGs are encouraged to undertake them. Cooperation is considered as a good way to facilitate learning by FLAGs and to contribute to achieving their strategic objectives, which strongly prioritise job creation, both within and outside the fisheries sector. In the previous period many Polish FLAGs already proved eager to learn from FLAGs in other Member States and to share their experience with them.

    SE - FLAG Cooperation in Sweden

    02/02/2017
    Sweden
    The 2003-2013 period in Sweden saw a number of exchange visits with FLAGs from other Member States, including exchanges that led to projects to introduce new approaches to other countries. In 2014-2020, FLAG cooperation is not mandatory in Sweden, but FLAGs had to indicate in their strategies how much funding they planned to allocate to it.

    IE - FLAG Cooperation in Ireland

    02/02/2017
    Ireland
    The first cooperation initiatives in Ireland are expected to emerge in 2017 following a national call for cooperation projects, which the Managing Authority (MA) plans to launch mid-2017. Although cooperation was not a strong element of the 2007-2013 Axis 4 programme in Ireland, the MA hopes that the call in the current programming period will result in at least one cooperation project per FLAG.
  • gr-eu-map-greece

    GR - FLAG Cooperation in Greece

    02/02/2017
    Greece
    Cooperation is strongly encouraged in Greece and the proposal of at least one (inter-territorial or transnational) cooperation project was a compulsory element of the application process for candidate FLAGs to receive EMFF funding. Some of the themes emerging most strongly from the Greek local development strategies include cooperation around tourism, thematic trails (e.g. around gastronomy, archaeology…) and diving parks.
  • fr-eu-map-france

    FR - FLAG Cooperation in France

    02/02/2017
    France
    Cooperation is strongly encouraged by the programme authorities in France and FLAGs were required to lay out their plans for cooperation within their local development strategies in their bid to gain EMFF funding. In some cases, cooperation is viewed as a transversal tool to strengthen the impact of all areas of FLAG work and, in other cases, cooperation is programmed as an area of work in its own right with specific objectives.

    EE - FLAG Cooperation in Estonia

    02/02/2017
    Estonia
    Cooperation in Estonia will focus on three main areas: joint marketing, knowledge transfer and promotion of fisheries and maritime activities.

    DK - FLAG Cooperation in Denmark

    02/02/2017
    Denmark
    FLAG areas in Denmark are focused on the few remaining small-scale fisheries communities. As such, cooperation activities are expected to focus on supporting small-scale fisheries businesses, attracting young people to work in fisheries and diversifying activities.
  • de-eu-germany-map

    DE - FLAG Cooperation in Germany

    02/02/2017
    Germany
    FLAG cooperation in Germany is mainly viewed as a transversal tool to strengthen the impact of other areas of FLAG work. It is included in the German EMFF Operational Programme (OP) but, in these early stages of the 2014-2020 period, cooperation is yet to become an operational priority.
