Atlantic Project Awards 2022


Stakeholders of the Atlantic Community are invited to apply or nominate a project for the Atlantic Project Awards 2022.

The Atlantic Project Awards feature outstanding initiatives, successful collaborations and achievements relevant to the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan 2.0. These projects have taken place within the EU Atlantic over the past year and showcase best practices and partnership models that could be scaled up at the regional, national, European and international level.

The Awards are organised by the Atlantic Strategy Committee, supported by the Atlantic Assistance Mechanism.

This year’s Awards shall be unveiled on the 2nd day of the 9th Atlantic Stakeholders Platform Conference, a hybrid event that will be held from the 30th of November until the 1st of December in Cádiz, Spain and online. Find out more about the Conference here.

Here’s what you need to know:

This year there will be 5 awards given out, and one single category:

  • Atlantic Awards: Candidates will be evaluated considering the positive impact they had on the Atlantic, giving equal importance to all sectors of the Blue Economy. Therefore, we encourage projects, initiatives and actions who have contributed to boosting the Atlantic identity by promoting sustainable and integrated development to apply for these awards.
