PLASMAR Project is developed with the support of the European Union, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Operational Programme of Territorial Cooperation Madeira-Azores-Canary Islands (POMAC 2014-2020).



PLASMAR will define and propose robust scientific methodologies in support of Maritime Spatial Planning and Blue Growth taking into consideration the biogeographic characteristics of the Macaronesian Region and searching for a balance between the diverse maritime sectors and the conservation of the natural marine heritage.
