After a long joint preparation journey the Atlantic Area 2014-2020 is finally shaped! The Programme was designed over the last two years by the working group composed by Member State representatives from five countries (France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom), supported by the Managing Authority, the Joint Technical Secretariat and  ECORYS and Regio+ consultants respectively in charge of OP drafting and ex-ante evaluation. The new draft Programme will subsequently be submitted to the European Commission for approval.
