On Tuesday, February 7th de 2012, 170 delegates from public and private organisations, local and regional authorities, universities and research institutions from across the Atlantic Area gathered in Grand Hotel, Malahide, Dublin for the conference “The Marine Economy: A key component of the EU Integrated Strategy for the Atlantic Area”, event hosted by the Border, Midland and Western (BMW) Regional Assembly, as part of the 2011 presidency of the Atlantic Area Programme.
