State of Play on the Organisation of the 4th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference

The preparatory activities for the organisation of the 4th Atlantic
Stakeholder Platform Conference are well underway. The draft ASPC2017
programme outlining the day has been prepared and can be found HERE [5].

The ASPC 2017 will feature prominent speakers informing Atlantic area

A series of WORKSHOPS will showcase inspiring project examples and good
practices which foster better knowledge of social challenges in the
Atlantic Area as well as preserve and promote the Atlantic’s cultural
heritage through diversification.


Five Projects will be honoured at the 2ND ATLANTIC PROJECT AWARDS’
CEREMONY to be held during ASPC2017 for exceling in each of the
following categories i.e. in promoting innovation, contributing to the
protection and improvement of the Atlantic’s marine and coastal
environment, improving connectivity and creating synergies for a
socially inclusive and sustainable model of regional development, and
for embodying the international dimension in the Atlantic Area.


Over 40 EXHIBITORS will be given the chance to showcase their
activities, projects, products, solutions and funding opportunities
during ASPC2017.

Consult the exhibitors’ guidelines and submit your request for a stand
HERE [8].

The ASPC2017 will give the opportunity to over 300 participants to
network during the day and especially during the coffee and lunch
breaks. To further facilitate and capitalize on the NETWORKING AND
MATCH-MAKING possibilities offered by ASPC2017 an online tool will be
deployed to facilitate the process. Information on the match-making tool
will be disseminated in early September.

REGISTER [9] now for the ASPC2017 to get inspired by new ideas, success
stories, networking activities and funding opportunities.




Littoral 2017 Conference, Liverpool, 5-7 June

Coastal & MarinE-News


We are pleased to announce our three-day international conference and excursions exploring the anthropocene and the littoral, with particular reference to the themes of ‘change, naturalness and people’. The conference will seek to examine how humans and human processes influence the littoral, and how these influences may now be viewed as natural, as much as any other natural processes.

The theme will gather all disciplines to explore current issues of relevance to the coast and will be of interest to a wide spectrum of scientists , including those from the physical sciences, climate change scientists and ecologists, social scientists, engineers, policy makers and advisers and practitioners.

The official language of the conference will be English and translation facilities will not be available.
