Event "Blue Synergies: Maximising Funding Impact in the Atlantic Sea Basin"

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! 19.10.2023 at Porto Cruise Terminal, Portugal

Happening for the first time, the event «Blue Synergies: Maximising Funding Impact in the Atlantic Sea Basin» aims to foster collaboration and explore the potential synergies between the Atlantic Strategy and the funding programmes operating in the area. It will happen on the 19 October (from 15:00 to 18:00), at Porto Cruise Terminal, in Portugal.

This event will bring together Atlantic Strategy’s stakeholders, funding authorities, the business community, and project owners. It will be a platform for fruitful discussions and idea exchange. Building on specific regional project examples, and on the opportunities provided by the Strategy, the event participants will exchange on how to design and deliver joint initiatives and build the needed processes for a sustainable blue economy in the Atlantic Area. It will be an interactive event where there will be place for a sort of a trade fair of programmes and projects with concrete deliverables. In addition, the meeting will provide a possibility for the funding authorities to discuss how to embed the Atlantic Strategy in a practical way and build closer cooperation links.

The Blue Synergies event is co-organised by DG Regio and DG Mare, with the support of Interreg Atlantic Area, the Atlantic Assistance Mechanism and Interact.
