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 draft Programme was subsequently submitted to the European Commission for approval. Atlantic Area 2014-2020 focuses on a limited number of challenges and needs, particularly those that can be best tackled through transnational cooperation to contribute to economic, social and territorial cohesion in the Atlantic region.
