The event will bring together Europe’s maritime community for two days of networking and knowledge-sharing
Taking place on May 16-17 at the Lisbon Congress Centre, the European Maritime Day conference will gather experts on maritime issues from around the world for workshops, exhibitions and other side events dedicated to sharing good practices, connecting with strategic partners and get insights into new projects.
The Interreg Atlantic Area Programme will join other Interreg maritime funding programmes in the “Knowledge of the Seas network” stand, facilitated by Interact, which will showcase funding opportunities for investment in transnational maritime cooperation. You can find here the agenda for this stand.
Atlantic Area project SAFER (Smart Atlantic Seafood Clusters) will participate at the conference with the workshop “Seafood as key sector for Blue Growth in the EU Regions” on the 17th of May at 9.00, which will focus on how to improve the competitiveness and performance of the seafood sector, considered as key for blue growth of EU regions, through innovation and technological advancements.
