ATLAS

ATLAS is testing a generic Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) framework1 developed by the FP7 MESMA (Monitoring and Evaluation of Spatially Managed Areas) project to assess spati

Sustainable and efficient use of ocean space can be achieved through a combination of different ocean uses both in close proximity, through joint operations, or on the same platform.

Over the last decade, the accelerated transition towards cleaner means of producing energy has been clearly prioritised by the European Union through large-scale planned deployment of wind farms in the North Sea.

In its third edition, the EU Blue Economy Report continues to analyse the scope and size of the Blue Economy in the European Union.

The general objective of this study is to evaluate how MSP benefits specific blue economy sectors, with the aim to feed the results into relevant EU policies and Competent Authorities in charge of implementing Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP).

Marine spatial planning (MSP) in Europe is in a paradigm shift as all (coastal) European countries now have established practices for the production of marine spatial plans.

REVIEWS IN AQUACULTURE 

Marine aquaculture is the most promising industry for ensuring future provision of seafood.

ATLAS - Understanding deep Atlantic Ecosystems 

The document provides an inventory of deep-sea ecosystem services (as well as their Blue Growth potential) in various locations of the North Atlantic.

NorthSEE

The report discusses the opportunities for engagement across and between regions to facilitate better understanding of marine planning and what it can achieve.

NorthSEE

The report is the result of the NorthSEE project.

SEANSE

The study is developed within the context of the SEANSE project with the aim of comparing and analysing different criteria applied by the North Sea countries when planning their offshore wind farms (OWF), while considering the environment and othe
