Recover and valorization of maritime, military and industrial heritage of the Atlantic Area coast

One of the main features of the Atlantic Area is its maritime dimension, which gives this territorial area a strong cultural identity. The proximity to the sea has led to a common development pattern, both economic and urban in coastal cities, closely linked to the sea and the maritime industry, and

New tools for monitoring the chemical status in transitional and coastal waters under the WFD

The protection of waters in Europe is regulated by the Water Framework Directive (WFD), which is mandatory for all European Union members. Significant progress has been made in the use of passive sampling devices (PSDs) for routine monitoring, but some barriers remain that prevent regulatory accepta

Multi-model investigation of tidal energy converter reliability

Marine renewable energy from tides is a significant potential growth industry for the Atlantic Area. There is a barrier to growth due to uncertainty in the engineering design, resulting in technology that is too expensive and risky to attract financial investment. The MONITOR project aims to foste

Maritime, ocean sector and ecosystem sustainability: fostering blue growth in Atlantic industries

In the last decade, Europe’s ocean economy has received increasing policy attention. This can be seen in the publication and ongoing implementation of the EU’s Blue Growth Strategy, the Atlantic Strategy and its Action Plan, the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, etc. These initiatives are all

Coordinated Atlantic coastal operational oceanographic observatory

The European Union has funded large scale initiatives to protect, secure and develop the potential of marine and coastal environments. The MYCOAST project will fill the gap between the large scale products and the end-users whilst addressing a transnational handling of the coastal observatories. The

Predicting risk and impact of harmful events on the aquaculture sector

The aquaculture sector on Europe’s Atlantic Area is negatively impacted by the effects of harmful blooms and microbial pathogens. The PRIMROSE project aims to strengthen risk management systems in order to grow, innovate and generate jobs in the aquaculture sector. This sector relies on sufficient

Reducing energy dependency in Atlantic Area water networks

The water industry is the fourth most energy intensive sector in the Atlantic Area, responsible for significant contributions to climate change and reductions in the competitiveness due to the associated costs, but with the potential to generate local renewable energy in water network infrastructure

Atlantic risk management plan in water and soil

The Atlantic Area presents high exposure to climate change. Increased intensity and frequency of storms, drought and flooding, altered hydrological cycles and precipitation variability have implications for the agriculture sector. There are huge uncertainties in the way climate change will directly

Smart Atlantic Seafood Clusters

The Safer project aims to improve the innovation performance of the seafood sector by increasing technology adoption and transnational cooperation giving response to the challenges faced by this sector identified with high-potential for the smart growth of the Atlantic regions participating in the p

Sustainable integration of renewable fuels in local transportation

The natural resources found in the Atlantic Area differ from north to south and a collaborative approach to study them as a whole is fundamental to adapt new technologies to the available resources. Islands in the 5 Member States suffer from energy disconnection from main infrastructures and an incr
