DG MARE, in cooperation with DG REGIO, is setting up the S3 thematic platform for SBE, to support blue economy interregional partnerships and value chains. In this framework, the promotion of cross fertilisation actions among macro-regional strategies with a maritime dimension and sea basin strategies can be facilitated by the S3 thematic platform for SBE.
