The seminar will consist of both panel groups and open discussions on priorities related to the promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation as well as protecting, securing and developing the potential of the Atlantic marine and coastal environment. Whilst the main theme will be investigating financial opportunities for Atlantic Action Plan-related projects, there will be a particular focus on enabling SMEs to participate in current and emerging opportunities.

To act on defined priorities in the Atlantic Action Plan, the European Commission seeks to encourage interaction and cooperation of stakeholders and looks forward to having a fruitful debate that help to devise meaningful projects in the Atlantic area.

The programme will be soon updated.
