Description
The 3rd National Event of the Support Team for the Atlantic Action Plan, in association with the 7th Annual Marine Economics and Policy Research Symposium, will take place in the Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway on Thursday November 24th 2016. Our session – running in parallel with the Symposium – will explore current funding opportunities which address Priority 2 of the Atlantic Action Plan: Protect, Secure and Enhance the marine and coastal environment.

Our aim is to bring together managing authorities of EU funds and project promoters to discuss the Atlantic Strategy and understand its relevance to EU funding opportunities. Discussion will centre on current EU funding opportunities, their link to the Strategy and constraints faced by project promoters. Advice and feedback will be available from managing authorities.
