    Bulgaria
    Cooperation projects in Bulgaria are likely to emerge later in the programming period, especially as FLAGs here are still relatively new to Community-Led Local Development and the process of fostering local territorial development is still a challenge.

    Croatie
    The 2014-2020 programming period is the first time that Croatia has Fisheries Local Action Groups, most of which are starting operations in 2018.

    Chypre
    Cooperation is strongly encouraged in Cyprus, both at the inter-territorial and the transnational level. The call for FLAG strategies included a specific section for cooperation plans and all three Cypriot FLAGs, therefore, received provisional approval of their cooperation proposals when selected.

    Danemark
    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.

    Finlande
    FLAG cooperation in Finland’s EMFF programme is considered to be a way of bringing new ideas and innovations to the country in order to address some specific challenges. In particular, cooperation is sought to increase the profitability of small-scale coastal fisheries and make the sector attractive as a career for young people, as well as combatting the issues posed by seals and cormorants in fishing communities. However, cooperation is not limited and other ideas and networking can be developed among the FLAGs.

    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.

    Allemagne
    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.
  • gr-eu-map-greece

    02/02/2017
    Grèce
    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.

    Irlande
    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.
