The Assistance Mechanism for the Atlantic Action Plan

What We Do

The Assistance Mechanism for the Atlantic Action Plan has been operating since August 2014 to:

  • Give you updated information on the Atlantic Action Plan, its research and investment priorities, hot news, interesting events and networking opportunities.
  • Provide you with a "match-making platform" to find potential project partners and advise you on the use of EU and national or regional financial instruments for projects implementing the Action Plan.

The Support Team consists of a network of National Hubs operating in France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom coordinated by a central team based in Brussels.

What the Atlantic Action Plan is About

  • The European Commission has adopted an Atlantic Action Plan in March 2013 to revitalize the marine and maritime economy of France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
  • The Atlantic Action Plan’s objectives are in line with EU’s “Blue Growth” initiative which is the maritime contribution to achieving the goals of the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
