Atlantic Action Plan 2.0
The European Commission adopted an updated action plan for a sustainable, resilient and competitive blue economy in the EU Atlantic area.
Research and innovation underpin all four pillars of the revamped strategy, “The research activities implemented as part of the Galway and Belém Statements and the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance cut across all pillars. They give an international dimension to the action plan and support its implementation by improving understanding of the changing Atlantic Ocean and its effects on coastal communities and by developing innovative solutions.”
