8.35 million euros granted to 23 projects under the third call for projects

19 projects remain on a reserve list and can be selected later, based on future available funds to release

The Monitoring Committee approved a total of 23 projects under the third call for extension, representing a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) investment of around 8.35 million euros.

The following Atlantic Area projects were approved for extension:

  • RISKAQUASOIL - Atlantic risk management plan in water and soil
  • SAFER - Smart Atlantic Seafood Clusters
  • TRIPLE-C - Capitalising climate change projects in risk management for a better Atlantic Area resilience

This projects’ approval was phased, with 9 projects being approved in a first stage (3.4 M€), 8 projects in the second stage (6.4 M€) and now in March the last 5 projects. These 23 projects will be implemented by 2023.

Given the nature of the call, the limited funding available, the large number of applications and high quality proposals, the Programme was not able to approve them all. Based on future available funding, the Monitoring Committee established a reserve list of 19 projects.

This extension and capitalisation call was restricted to the 71 projects already funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area. We received 52 applications from projects setting out additional work, actions and partners to add further value to their activities, goals and results achieved.

The call was open from the 4th of October to the 30th of November 2021, with an initial ERDF available of 8 million euros.
