ATLIC wants to change how young people come up with new ideas and start businesses in the blue economy of the Atlantic Area. The main goal is to create a test community called the Atlantic Innovation Blue Community.

Partners plan to do this by setting up special places called open innovation labs, sharing knowledge, teaching new skills, and building networks of support. Their approach is based on a model that involves young people, teachers, small businesses, and both public and private groups, promoting everyone's active involvement.

For this to work well, people from different places need to work together. They'll share what they know, solve problems, and create new groups focused on specific areas. This is called the four-helix model. The project aims to help young people play a big part in making the economy better and more sustainable.

By working together and learning from each other, they hope to create solutions to common challenges in the region. This way, more young people can be a part of building a sustainable economy, improving their ability to come up with new things and finding better job opportunities.
