Preparation Survey for 2014-2020 Atlantic Area Programme

This year the Atlantic Area Programme has started looking at its future for the 2014-2020 period in the framework of the new cohesion policy and the Europe 2020 strategy. For this purpose a specific working group comprising the 5 Programme Member States has been created and is developing the first steps towards the drafting of the new Operational Programme. In this context, it has been decided to organise a consultation process through an open survey addressed to Programme stakeholders. The survey consists of a mix of closed and open questions to identify the challenges, needs and existing potential in Atlantic Area regions.

Answering the survey gives the opportunity to organisations to contribute effectivly to prepare the 2014-2020 Atlantic Area Programme.
