The current project contracts extend until 2020 and the total number of projects executed to date amounts to around 60 European projects. The European Projects in which the PAG participates fall into two main groups:
- Innovation: Projects with a marked technological component. Most of these belong to the Framework Program, from the 3rd Framework Program 1992-1994 to HORIZON 2020, but there are also projects under other programs such as the LIFE program, TEN-TELECOM, KNOWLEDGE REGIONS, GMES-ESA and the State Ports R&D program or the National R&D Program.
- Business development: Projects with the objective of meeting the strategic and commercial objectives of the Port of Gijon are generally financed with funds from the Connecting Europe Facility, ERDF funds, from INTERREG II 1994-1999 to INTERREG V 2004-2020 or Erasmus, LIFE or HORIZON 2020 funds.
