The ambition of the PartiSEApate project is to develop a pan-Baltic approach to the topics whose spatial dimension goes over the national borders (i.e. nature protection areas, grid connections, shipping lanes). Partners will develop a concept for a MSP institutional framework and governance model (incl. transnational consultation, MSP data exchange network), which shall provide input to policy decisions taken at the VASAB ministerial conference. The VASAB Compendium on MSP systems in BSR countries will be updated and bodies responsible for drafting MSP throughout the region will test and develop instruments and models how multi-level and transnational governance mechanisms can be realised in MSP. The project will have three pilot case areas:
  • Pomeranian Bight (SE, DE, PL),
  • Lithuanian Sea (LT, LV, SE, RU)
  • Middle Bank (SE, PL).
In addition partners will engage national & transnational bodies, other PACs & flagships, sectors & researchers in a dialogue on a pan-Baltic level. Through a sequence of single-topic workshops (i.e. shipping, wind energy, aquaculture, cultural heritage, environment, climate change, data & research) stakeholders will better understand what MSP means to them and the transnational nature of their topic. In follow up cross-sectoral workshops synergies and conflicts will be identified and proposals for future MSP governance processes at pan-Baltic level will be developed.
