This study provides quantitative and qualitative information on algae-related projects funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) through Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs). The findings outline the levels of knowledge and interest amongst FLAGs in working further on algae production in contributing to their areas’ local development. In addition, the study improves the understanding of the challenges and opportunities perceived by FLAGs in the future support of algae-related activities in their areas.

Cooperation MS Fiche
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.
