The 4th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference on the topic "Regeneration under generations socially inclusive sustainable development of the European Atlantic Seaboard", hosted this year 8 parallel workshops and around 40 project stands, offering a great opportunity for Atlantic stakeholders to meet, seek ways of cooperation and identify funding opportunities and partnerships for their projects.

The Atlantic Area project ATLANTIC SOCIAL LAB organised a workshop on the theme of “social innovation as a strategy for Atlantic Area sustainable and inclusive development”, organized by the Centre for Social Studies of University of Coimbra.
