The Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) and the Atlantic Forum have co-organised this thematic workshop. This Atlantic Forum workshop focused on how research and innovation can contribute to the successful implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan with the objective to identify the research and innovation priorities necessary to enable the implementation of an Atlantic strategy. The event was organised into two parallel workshops: Research & Innovation and Atlantic ports. The Workshop in Cork was well attended by participants representing universities, relevant clusters, ports, as well as by a number of high-level EU and Irish officials, including Ms Lowri Evans (Director General, DG Mare), Mr Simon Coveney (Irish Minister for the Marine), and Mr Seán Sherlock (Minister of State with responsibility for Research and Innovation at the Department of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation).
