Final Conference took place 31 January -1 February 2024 - we were delighted to share our achievements!

Summary will be available here!

Implementation phase of maritime spatial plans across Europe aligned with a turbulent time with many emerging challenges and challenging agreements. However, our strive towards sustainable, coherent and innovative MSP (across borders, sectors and levels) was fuelling our collaboration and is reflected in our results.

After 2,5 years in joint work between maritime spatial planners, researchers, managing authorities and policymakers from the North and Baltic Sea regions we shared our findings in 5 emerging topics [Ocean governance, Ecosystem-based approach, Sustainable blue economy, Monitoring and evaluation, Data sharing] and 2 cross-cutting themes [Climate Change and European Green Deal].

We also presented and discussed a Community of Practice -based approach which we used in eMSP NBSR and which allowed us to deepen knowledge and formulate recommendations for various stakeholders of MSP. Last but not least we exchanged on solutions with fellow MSP projects and experts beyond two sea-basins for the future of MSP through integration and collaboration.
