The geographical areas covered by this call include the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean.
The aim of the programme is to develop an innovative, knowledge and research based, sustainable and inclusive 2 Seas area, where natural resources are protected and the green economy promoted.
Although adoption of Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is increasing worldwide (in August 2018, about 70 countries were preparing or had prepared MSP plans at the regional, national or local scale), many regions, countries or municipalities still need
This handbook has been developed within the context of the SIMAtlantic project that aims to support the establishment and implementation of Maritime Spatial Plans in line with MSP Directive requirements.

iAtlantic assesses health of deep and open-ocean Atlantic ecosystems. It scales and standardises measurements from different disciplines so ecosystem status can be assessed against multiple stressors and global change.
Oceans represent a significant, predictable resource for renewable energy. The main forms of ocean energy are waves, tides, marine currents, salinity gradient and temperature gradient.

In the last four decades there has been a significant increase in experiences to implement marine spatial planning and the interest of the scientific community in evaluating the impacts of these policies.
The Adriatic-Ionian Geoportal (GAIR), has been built to support the analysis and risk assessment within the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) processes, and to be a concrete tool for the EUSAIR Action Pl
