The EMFF is the fund for the EU's maritime and fisheries policies for 2014-2020. The Fund is used to co-finance projects to support diversification and sustainable development of maritime economies in the Member States. 10% of the fund’s budget is spent directly by the European Commission through grants and procurements to support the development and implementation of EU maritime policy, such as for Blue Economy Window and BlueInvest Initiative.
