Call for tenders: Synergies and clustering between maritime projects

The European Commission's Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) wishes to enter into a service contract to improve the effectiveness of bottom-up initiatives funded through calls for proposals and supported under the direct management of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

The general aim to be achieved with this contract is to set up and develop a process for evaluating and clustering EMFF financed projects from 2016 onwards.

The service contract will manage and animate a platform for structured exchange of information, mutual learning, greater visibility and cross-fertilisation between projects funded under EMFF.

This will have as main results:

  • a better understanding of factors that positively influence the success of projects supported by the EMFF direct management, as well as of bottlenecks (in order to inform and improve future processes for programming actions to be funded under EMFF through direct management)
  • mutual learning to enable projects to take advantage of insights and practices from other projects, including relevant similar projects funded by other EU funding instruments (i.e. Horizon 2020, LIFE etc.)
  • an increased visibility of EMFF projects
