Implementing the Atlantic Action Plan – Opportunities for SMEs
The Atlantic Strategy was launched by the European Commission in late 2011 to identify key challenges and opportunities to create jobs and foster economic development. This parallel session will be aimed towards the marine SMEs working in the Atlantic area. SMEs have an important contribution to make in the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan and this workshop will offer them a chance to learn more about these opportunities.
What can you expect from this session? The participation of the European Commission (DG MARE) will provide great focus to this session as we discuss SMEs and the Atlantic Action Plan. The session will offer information about both the public and private funding programmes including speakers from funding initiatives and also representatives from SMEs that have been successful in accessing these funds. The session will finish off with a panel discussion exploring the potential opportunities and provide practical tips for any SMEs looking to perusing these.
We look forward to the participation of any SME looking to get involved in the Atlantic Action Plan on the 10th July.
