• Location:   European Parliament, Brussels (Belgium)

This event, hosted and chaired by MEP Marian-Jean MARINESCU in the framework of the SEArica Intergroup, will be the occasion to launch the Black Sea SRIA (Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda) Implementation Plan to set the foundational work for protecting unique habitats of the Black Sea while supporting the development of sea-based sectors, which will then boost the blue economy and help create more jobs. 

The Implementation Plan includes specifically designed research and innovation actions, actions to build vital support systems and innovative research infrastructure, actions to enhance education, and to build, develop and strengthen capacity. The Implementation Plan of the Black Sea SRIA, as scientific pillar of the Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea, calls upon participants from academia, funding organisations, industry, policy, and society to take these strategic joint actions forward, in order to address the fundamental challenges of the Black Sea and promote a sustainable blue economy. Policy-makers, Black Sea scientists and Black Sea Young Ambassadors, citizens as well as the next generation Black Sea youth and entrepreneurs and investors, all have a role to play as future change makers for the Black Sea.
