MARNET (Marine Atlantic Regions Network) is a EU collaborative transnational project involving eight partners from the maritime regions of the EU Atlantic Area (the Basque country of Spain, Brittany in France, Stirling in Scotland, Porto in Portugal and the Border Midland and West region of Ireland).
The aim of the project is to create an EU Atlantic marine socio economic network that will develop a methodology to create and collate comparable marine socio-economic data across the Atlantic regions and to use this data to support marine socio economic development initiatives along the Atlantic Area.
The €1.3m project involves the participation of marine researchers as well as Regional Authorities across the Atlantic Area. The UE contributes to the project with 851.464€.
The Project is part funded by the ERDF through the EU Interreg Atlantic Area Programme 2007-2013.
