The implementation activities of the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation, signed in May 2013 by the EU, Canada and the United States of America, and launching an Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, are moving to a new exciting stage. This event will be the launch pad for all the 'Galway Statement follow-up projects' funded with the first Horizon 2020 Blue Growth calls - the main financial instrument on the EU side to make the Galway Statement commitments reality. The event will also provide a snapshot of many other ongoing existing initiatives between Atlantic coastal states, and it will offer great opportunities for networking.
