Blueprint for Atlantic-Arctic Agora
on cross-sectoral cooperation for restoration of marine and coastal ecosystems and increased climate resilience through transformative innovation
Coastal Restoration with nature and people
Why A-AAGORA project?
The Horizon Europe project Atlantic-Arctic Agora (A-AAGORA) is structured to support the European Commission Mission on “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” within the “Atlantic- Arctic lighthouse”.
A-AAGORA is responding to the need:
• To protect and restore marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity.
• To protect valuable ecosystems located in coastal communities particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts.
• To mitigate the effects of climate change, while promoting societal well-being.

Where will A-AAGORA be implemented?
A-AAGORA will demonstrate how innovation, Ecosystem-based Management and Nature-based Solutions can contribute to sustainable transformation in three coastal areas:
Troms, Arctic Archipelago, Norway
County Cork, Ireland
Centro Region, Portugal
The three Demos will serve as pilots of innovative actions, providing important data from the Atlantic-Arctic Lighthouse that can advance global ocean science and direct research in other coastal and marine regions.
With the aim of supporting EU-Caribbean cooperation in marine research, the European Commission organised the EU-Caribbean Workshop on Marine Science Cooperation, that took place on 14-15 November at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Barbados. Ana Lillebø, Vice-Rector of the University of Aveiro and scientific coordinator of the A-AAGORA project, was invited by the…
