The Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) represents 150 maritime regions in 24 European Union countries and beyond. It is both a think tank and an interest group for regional and local governments. Since its inception in 1973, the CPMR has been acting to promote a more balanced development of the European territory. Most of its work addresses EU policies with a strong territorial impact (energy transition and climate change, cohesion policy, accessibility & transport). The CPMR is structured around a core policy secretariat and six Geographical Commissions covering the main sea basins of Europe: Atlantic Arc, Balkans and Black Sea, Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, North Sea, and one for Islands. The Geographical Commissions provide active forums in which CPMR members address European issues and share best practices on areas of common interest, including the development of the blue economy, decarbonisation of regional economies, energy transition, and climate change. They form the backbone of the CPMR, contributing to its political deliberations and technical notes. The CPMR has over forty years worth of experience influencing European policy development, and in implementing European projects. The CPMR and its AAC have been involved in a range of EU projects as full partner for over 10 years, mostly in activities related to communication and dissemination of results and key messages to its extended network. The CPMR plays a strong role in transferring and capitalisation activities, advocating the integration of best practice, innovative solutions, and positive societal change in policies with high territorial impact, in the field of maritime issues, territorial cooperation, transport/accessibility, and other global issues, such as climate change. With member regions from across the whole of the EU and outside the EU, CPMR provide great opportunities for dissemination and transfer of knowledge and experience. This will be their main responsibility under ASPBAN, leading WP8. CPMR brings in the participation of but over 150 public authorities, who are best placed to structure local and regional value chains and ensure the right conditions are in place to support project aims and long-term sustainability of project outcomes.
