Implementing the Atlantic Action Plan – Workshop on Project Funding and Development @ Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool, Wednesday 12th July
The Atlantic Action Plan, put in place to implement the Atlantic Strategy, has been widely promoted in the UK in order to draw attention to stakeholders of both the opportunities it presents in the UK and also for collaboration with other EU Atlantic Member States (France, Ireland, Portugal and Spain). Following on from the National Event that was held in Liverpool in December 2015, and a series of roadshows that are being organised by the Support Team for the Atlantic Action Plan, a workshop is being planned to help stakeholders develop project ideas. The event, taking place on the 12th July, at the Mersey Maritime Museum in Liverpool, will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to meet others with an interest in developing projects of relevance to the Atlantic Area. Some Interreg Programmes are moving towards final calls for project proposals and this workshop has been designed to help stakeholders develop project ideas.
During the morning session, stakeholders will get a chance to hear about developments in the Atlantic Action Plan, an update on funding opportunities and the experience of projects that have already received funding from the Interreg Atlantic Area programme and other sources. The afternoon session will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss how they might develop project ideas for submission to the final round of calls under the current Interreg programmes.
