Our project supports the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with a focus
on the AgriFood sector. The aim of this project is to set out a clear definition of the Atlantic Area
AgriFood ecosystem and to identify and classify AgriFood ecosystem sectoral pressures on
growth to create pathways towards internationalisation. Activity also includes focus on EU policy
regarding the development of the ocean economy. Once a larger temporal picture is developed
of the regional ecosystems, InterPathAtlantic then examines the environmental pressures and
impacts from the growing sectors to iteratively develop a sustainable innovation toolkit to forge
possible pathways to internationalisation. The outputs will assist industry stakeholders, regional
authorities and policymakers in establishing sustainable pathways to internationalisation in the
AgriFood sector for the Atlantic Area.
Innovation is a cross-cutting theme but also a Priority Axis of the Interreg Atlantic programme.
It is also considered as one of the most important driving forces for regional and economic
development. It can be described as a process through which knowledge is created and
translated into new products, services or processes of the private and the public sector.
Innovation is conceived in a variety of contexts, such as technology, economy, social systems,
policy development etc., and can be process-oriented, goal-oriented or context-oriented.
Innovation is a key driver of Atlantic Area projects. The AgriTourTech Atlantic Project addresses
Priority 1: Stimulating innovation and competitiveness
In order to face the challenge of accelerating intelligent growth, projects that work in
accordance with the Regional Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3) concept are sought to
support the creation of the right environment, to stimulate innovation and increase trade and
exports, combining strengths, competences and R&I. Priority 1 has two objectives:
1.1 Enhancing innovation capacity through cooperation to foster competitiveness
1.2 Strengthening the transfer of innovation results to facilitate the emergence of new products,
services and processes.
