Unlocking the potential of innovation, circularity, and digitalisation for accelerating new marine-based ecotourism, joint practices, and businesses in ORs.


The TWINNEDbySTARS consortium consists of 10 partners and 1 affiliated entity with extensive experience in nautical tourism, spanning applied and research fields, business support through clusters and chambers of commerce, and regulatory and promotion aspects within the public administration sector.

Grant agreement number: 101124900
Granting authority: European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency
Project starting date: 1 October 2023
Project duration: 36 months
Funding rate: 85%
Grant amount: 996 630.11 €
Coordinator: University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria


The project aims at increasing the competitiveness of maritime tourism activity in remote territories while contributing to protecting marine biodiversity, preserving cultural heritage, and developing marine astrotourism. To do so, the project acts in three areas: strengthening partnerships already in operation, capacity building, and co-creation opportunities for the design and implementation of transnational eco-tourism products. The project extends across four Atlantic Outermost Regions, which are located at the natural nautical crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, taking advantage of the trade winds, the Canary Current, and the Gulf Stream, eastwards from the Canaries to Martinique and returning westwards via the Azores and Madeira.
