The “Facility for Blue Growth in the Black Sea" is a two-year technical assistance project set up by the European Commission in order to promote the development of blue growth and blue economy in the Black Sea basin, in the framework of the European Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP).

It also assists the private sector by providing all interested parties with updated information on events, news, networking and financing opportunities and by bringing together potential project partners and assisting them in developing and funding projects.
