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 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. It will also be the occasion to bring together all the project coordinators and partners, both from our Member States, from the US and Canada, but also from Brazil and South Africa, which will contribute to extend this cooperation towards the Southern Atlantic.
