1st and 2nd Mission Arenas by Blue Mission BANOS

Projects in the BANOS Region

This document provides an overview of more than 300 projects that align with the objectives of the EU Mission “Restore Our Ocean and Waters” across four countries of the 1st Mission Arena by Blue Mission BANOS: Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway; and also the 2nd Mission Arena by Blue Mission BANOS: Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. It is important to acknowledge that for a reason of efficiency, we have refrained from making a detailed analysis (meaning a distinction between North and Baltic Sea for the Germany, Denmark and Sweden or a focus on the South of Norway) but included data for all these four countries.

The overview includes completed and ongoing projects initiated in the period between 2011 and 2024. The project data was sourced from online platforms CORDIS and Keep.eu, as well as individual stakeholder websites and reports. Please keep in mind that this overview is still not exhaustive – as we need more time and resources to complement it with data form national, regional, or privately funded projects.

Your INPUT is highly appreciated!
