The objective of the project is to promote marine and maritime R&D of the European and African Macaronesian regions so that their approaches and results are addressed to contribute to the best articulation of the scientific - technical - company system, in fields such as security and sustainability in transport, maritime tourism and ports, increasing the protection of coastal areas, resources and marine biodiversity and the forecasting and management of natural risks. This is a way to contribute to promote the socio-economic development of these regions, in keeping with international goals.
This objective is a specific contribution to improve the insufficient R&D system, in a specific area, i.e. the marine and maritime sectors, where the Macaronesian regions have conditions and own potentialities that if exploited will provide significant value to its development. The previous experience and the agreements between the partners and other agents of the sector will guarantee a further strengthening of a solid foundation of cooperation and financial sustainability.
