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.
