On the implementation of the EU's "Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030" mission

The PREP4BLUE project aims to support the "development and pilot phase" of the EU mission "Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030". Project outcomes will enable identified lighthouse areas (North Sea, Baltic Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Danube River Basin and Black Sea) to develop and test innovations of all kinds: technological, social, business models and governance; with a focus on the methods that enable co-design and co-implementation of solutions with citizens and stakeholders. Citizen participation and action methods will be developed to deepen citizen engagement, using democratic innovation and co-production of participatory methods.

KDM Tasks

The KDM contribution includes the creation and implementation of the narrative "What are the contributions of science and innovation to achieve the goal of the EU mission "Restore our Seas and Waters by 2030"?". Specifically, KDM is responsible for the internet and social media presence as well as for a pilot exhibition. Scientific policy communication is included herewith. The work to formulate the narratives includes embedding both EU-funded projects as well as national contributions (e.g: KÜNO, DAM missions, etc.).

Further information will follow at the end of summer 2022.
