The North Atlantic region join forces to support growth and development within ocean related fields.

On November 19-20, representatives from Norway, Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Denmark and Newfoundland Canada gathered in Copenhagen where a new alliance of ocean clusters in the North Atlantic was founded, the North Atlantic Ocean Cluster Alliance (NOACA). The participating countries all have a long history of cooperation and all depend heavily on ocean resources.

 

The objective of the alliance is to support growth and development in ocean related fields by increasing international cooperation. Furthermore, the alliance will serve as a platform for distributing knowledge and identifying new business opportunities

 

The cooperation is sponsored by NORA and Nordic Innovation and will be lead by Iceland. It is one of 15 projects within the Nordic Marine Innovation Programme.
