Report from the experts

Presentations day 1

Presentations day 2


The European Commission is supporting the organization of a number of seminars to support stakeholders in implementing the Atlantic Action Plan. These seminars aim to be very practical and we encourage interaction and cooperation between all interested parties.


The objective of the seminar is to help stakeholders learn about and devise ideas for projects in the Outermost Regions that would meet the needs of the Atlantic Action Plan and that could benefit from EU or private funding, with a specific focus on European Territorial Cooperation funding.

Target audience

Public and private stakeholders and organizations responsible for the design and implementation of projects that could benefit from EU funding (e.g. national, regional and local authorities, research bodies, financial institutions, European and national associations, private companies).
