The Atlantic Area Transnational Cooperation Programme is a territorial cooperation programme of the European Commission for the period 2007-2013, financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Its aims were to achieve significant and tangible progress in transnational cooperation geared towards cohesive, sustainable and balanced territorial development of the Atlantic Area and its maritime heritage.


Building on the success of the 2007-2013 programme, a specific working group developed a new Operational Programme for 2014-2020, composed of representatives from all member states participating in the previous programme.
