        The ProtoAtlantic project announces its final conference and encourages all the stakeholders in the European marine community and general public to save this date. The conference will take place online on the morning of October 19th and will offer attendees the opportunity to learn first-hand about the project results, findings and conclusions, as well as high-level insights from experts on current and innovative blue economy topics and supporting strategies. The invitation for registration will follow in the coming weeks.

        ProtoAtlantic is a European project co-funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme which supports marine startups in meeting the main challenges to get their technologies and products ready and therefore accelerating innovation into the market.

        Furthermore, this ProtoAtlantic final event will be completed with a Demo Day where preselected marine start-ups will get the opportunity to pitch their businesses to investors. The Demo Day will take place online on the morning of October 20th as a private session (only for invited startups and investors).
