Dear Subscriber, 

Welcome to the fourth ProtoAtlantic newsletter. The ProtoAtlantic Team hope that you and your family are all safe and healthy during this public health emergency. 

We recently launched the ProtoAtlantic Stakeholder Platform, which provides an environment for SMEs, start-ups, researchers and investors in the marine sector to access a high value set of resources. The platform provides expert training workshops and materials for start-ups, as well as a forum for users to discuss all things marine. Don't forget to sign up

The Fast Tracked Product Development phase of ProtoAtlantic continues in 2020, with several international start-ups testing their maritime technologies free of charge at a number of world-renowned test facilities in Ireland, Scotland, Portugal and Spain.

We have plenty more events and activities planned for the remainder of 2020, so make sure to 
keep up to data with all the latest ProtoAtlantic news, and follow our Website, our LinkedIn account, and our Twitter account!
