SAFER, or Smart Atlantic Seafood Clusters, is a transnational innovation project co-funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme 2014-2020.

The project runs from September 2017 to September 2020.

The project aims to improve the innovation performance of the seafood industry by increasing technology adoption and transnational cooperation. SAFER is led by ERNACT (Ireland) and brings together 9 partners from the Atlantic regions of Bretagne (France), Border, Midland and Western (Ireland), Northern Ireland (UK), Norte (Portugal) and Cantabria (Spain). The partnership is formed by a balanced mix of organisations including interregional networks, sea clusters, public institutions, universities, SMEs and maritime economy associations.
