Ambitious cooperation for a healthy, resilient and productive Black Sea

A unique sea basin, rich in biodiversity, heritage and natural resources, the Black Sea has been a prominent waterway for goods, ideas and people for millennia. But the Black Sea is facing significant challenges, ranging from environmental to human-induced, all contributing to degradation that began as early as the 1970s. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights important and cross-sectoral EU-funded research initiatives that have been working towards ensuring the sustainable future of the Black Sea by supporting its research and innovation ecosystem.

Overall, the projects cover a wide variety of topics, such as: biodiversity science and ecosystem and pollution modelling; social innovation; ecotourism; sustainable mobility in ports; marine spatial planning; and sustainable and inclusive growth. Some of these projects are also key frontrunners for addressing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the European Green Deal, the EU’s flagship climate initiative aiming to make the EU completely carbon-neutral by 2050.
