PROJECT TITLE: BLUE CROWDFUNDING- Capacity Building of BLUE Economy Stakeholders to Effectively use CROWDFUNDING.

ACRONYM: BLUE CROWDFUNDING


ABOUT
The project is focused on the fact  that Blue economy innovation in the Mediterranean could be significantly improved, if more investment funds would be available. One possible solution is the use of Crowdfunding (CF), but in the MED area, knowledge and capacities for CF are still low in comparison to North EU. The project general objective is to improve innovation capacities in the blue growth sector by mainstreaming the use of crowdfunding. Additional project's ambition is to trigger change from using public funds for innovation to use crowdfunding and crowdsourcing to fund, test and validate innovative blue economy products and services. Consequently blue-economy SMEs will get better access to funding and will be able to deliver better and more innovative solutions.
