Atlantic Project Awards 2023

The Call for applications to select the Atlantic Project Awards 2023 is open, and stakeholders from the Atlantic Community are invited to apply or nominate a project.

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 European Union Atlantic Area over the past year and showcase success stories, best practices and partnership models that could be scaled up at the regional, national, European and international level, while promoting the key priorities of the Atlantic Strategy. 

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

The winners of the Atlantic Project Awards 2023 will be announced during the 10th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference (ASPC 2023), which will be held on the 18th and 19th of October at the Terminal de Cruzeiros do Porto de Leixões (Porto Cruise Terminal), in Oporto, Portugal.
