Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on Sustainable Blue Economy fosters interactions in the knowledge triangle (academia-policy-society) related to the theme of blue economy, both in how this plays out in the EU, and in its relation with the Mediterranean region. The Centre pools knowledge and competence on the subject of the EU’s blue economy.

The Centre was planned at a time when the need for a transformation of marine and maritime sectors towards sustainable development has never been more urgent, and the EU’s commitment to doing so has never been stronger. In 2021 the EU has, through a Communication, acknowledged the seas and oceans as central to the accomplishment of objectives of the EU’s strategic agenda – European Green Deal. At the same time, a green transition was made one of key pillars of the EU’s strategy vis-a-vis its Mediterranean neighbours.

The seal of Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence was awarded to the Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI) by the European Commission for a period of 2022-2025 with the support of the Erasmus+ programme, grant number 101048038.
