- Interreg Atlantic Information Session - Michael O'Brien (NWRA)
The Atlantic Programme area is rich in maritime heritage and marine resources and boasts a strong Atlantic cultural identity. The area is also challenged by ongoing deficits in Innovation and SME competitiveness capacity as well as environmental threats including climate change and threats to the biodiversity of the Atlantic area. The agreed Programme Priorities respond to these challenges and will furthermore exploit opportunities in niche areas such as Green growth, Renewable Energies and Eco-Innovation.
The eligible priorities for the 2014-2020 Programme period are:
- Priority Axis 1: Stimulating Innovation and Competitiveness
- Priority Axis 2: Fostering Resource Efficiency
- Priority Axis 3: Strengthening The Territory's resilience to risks of natural, climate and human origin.
- Priority Axis 4: Enhancing biodiversity and the natural and cultural assets.
In the afternoon there will be opportunties for one on one advisory meetings with National Contact Points. Meeting rooms will also be available for breakout sessions if required.
