Atlantic Arc

A sea-Bed Strategy addressing common opportunities and challenges of the regions in particular related to maritime physical and socio-economic context.

Regions in the Atlantic share common opportunities and challenges, in particular related to their maritime physical and socio-economic context, and for many to their relatively peripheral location. The Conference for Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) and its Working Groups bring together policy makers, academia and experts from different countries that form part of the Atlantic Arc Sea Basin Strategy.

They discuss on a regular basis how synergies can be developed between different national / regional S3 strategies and the Atlantic Arc Sea Basin Strategy. The S3 Platform has cooperated with CPMR to help assist Atlantic Arc countries/regions in aligning their S3 priorities.
