Table of Contents

    The workshop will discuss why and how an integrated maritime strategy for this area would bring clear added value to the EU. The panel is deliberately diverse so as to reflect different visions of the actions and policies which need to be developed within the Atlantic Area. The maritime dimension will of course be at the centre of the discussions.
