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.


Scholars have criticised the practice of marine spatial planning because of its shortcomings in engaging the human dimension. However, working with social issues causes various planning dilemmas.

The Sea2Land project aims to provide solutions to help overcome future challenges related to food production, climate change and waste reuse.


Within the framework of the project ‘Strengthening the Capacity of MSP Stakeholders and Decision Makers: Capacity4MSP’, a practical, interactive collaboration platform for maritime spatial planning (hereinafter – MSP) stakeholders, practitioners,

The MSP4BIO supports the implementation of the EU (European Union) Biodiversity Strategy (EUBS) 2030, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) post-2020 framework, and the EU Green Deal.

The offshore multi-use setting is a concept that reduces spatial competition in the marine economy.


The concept of marine spatial planning (MSP) is converging with the worldwide momentum towards more sustainable behaviours.

MSP Global

Successful marine management needs planners and managers who understand and work with the sea’s diversity in space and time.

The Mediterranean is being and will be heavily impacted by Climate Change (CC).

Ocean energy has the potential to provide a substantial amount of renewable and reliable energy around the world. European waters have about 10 GW of predictable high-value tidal stream potential.

Planning Practice & Research

It is more difficult for marine planners to gain understanding of their plan areas than terrestrial planners, because of the relative remoteness of the sea.
