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.
