The INTERREG Atlantic Area Programme 2014-2020 was adopted by the European Commission on November 17th 2015. The Programme will provide €140m in support from the European Regional Development Fund to assist transnational co-operation projects across four eligible thematics:
• Innovation and Competitiveness
• Resource Efficiency
• Strengthening the territory’s resilience to risks of natural, climate and human origin
• Enhancing Biodiversity and the Natural and Cultural Assets.

Five member states of the EU will benefit from the Programme ( Ireland, Portugal and designated regions of France, Spain and the UK.) With a strong marine tradition, the Atlantic Area Programme will provide significant funding opportunities for marine co-operation frameworks in each of the four eligible thematics which will also complement many of the strategic priorities of the Atlantic Action Plan.

There will also be opportunities for advisory meetings with National Contact Points in the afternoon (TBC). Meeting rooms will also be available for breakout sessions if required.

Agenda will follow and timings.
