17-02-2016

The European Commission adopted the Atlantic Action Plan in 2013, aiming to revitalise the marine and maritime economy of France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom after the economic crisis. Funded from existing EU programmes, the plan promotes entrepreneurship and innovation through research and technology, while protecting the marine environment. Engaging national and regional actors, it also opens up possibilities of wider transatlantic cooperation.
