NPA Annual Conference 2017 – Galway, Ireland

Marine Institute

The GREBE Project will attend the NPA Annual Conference 2017 which takes place in Galway on 21st September.  The theme of this years conference is ‘Blue Growth’.

The programme for the conference not only focuses on the Arctic, but also aims to contribute to the Atlantic Strategy. The conference will address such topics as entrepreneurship and innovation related to fisheries and aquaculture, environmental protection and maritime and coastal tourism.

Galway located on the Atlantic coast is a fitting location. The venue is the Marine Institute, which plays a national coordinating role in the Atlantic Strategy.

The Western Development Commission, Action Renewables, Fermanagh & Omagh District Council and the Environmental Research Institute will attend and meet with other projects funded under the NPA programme.
