The Atlantic Project Awards are designed to honour outstanding success stories, achieved by projects in the geographical area covered by the Atlantic Strategy and with relevance to the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan.
The Awards are organized by the Atlantic Strategy Group (ASG) with the help of the Assistance Mechanism for the Atlantic Action Plan, and aim to showcase and promote individual winners and highlight the incorporation and scaling up of best practices at regional, national, European and international level.
The Atlantic Project Awards seek to make the Atlantic Strategy more visible to the general public by promoting the key priorities of the Atlantic Action Plan and its achievements across the Member States covered by the Atlantic Strategy.
Follow up actions will be undertaken to increase winner project publicity i.e. dissemination actions through the Assistance Mechanism’s web-based communication channels (electronic publications and social media).
The Atlantic Project Awards commenced in 2016 at which time they were organized in the Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference in Dublin (ASPC2016), while the 2nd and 3rd editions of the Awards were held respectively in Glasgow during ASPC2017 and in Vigo during ASPC2018.
