The ESPON funded MSP-LSI Project is drawing to a close at the end of this month with many of the outputs already available for download on the project website. The final months of the project have been busy for the MSP-LSI Team who have presented the project work at a number of events including participating in European Maritime Day, in Lisbon on the 16th-17th May. ESPON representatives together with the Lead Expert of the project, Kidd Sue, from the University of Liverpool, were on hand at the ESPON stand in the exhibition area and two “speed exchange meetings” took place with other experts that participated also in the EMD 2019. “Speed exchange meetings” is an innovative and very interactive concept where a number of experts discuss for 30 minutes on a specific topic, exchange ideas and information without any presentations or formalities. More information regarding the exchange meetings can be found here. In order to celebrate the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, an ESPON seminar "The role of functional areas for territorial cohesion" took place in Iași, Romania on the 19th and 20th June 2019. There was again the opportunity for participants to learn more about the MSP-LSI Project on Day 2 of the seminar when Sue Kidd, University of Liverpool discussed the main impacts of maritime activities on land. The presentation can be watched via the event website.
