BalticRIM project has been approved!

s.Pro is pleased to announce that the project BalticRIM, dealing with the cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea, has been approved by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme on the 23rd May 2017!

The cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea is exceptionally versatile and well preserved even in a global comparison. To date, these cultural assets are barely included in Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) in the Baltic Sea. BalticRIM aims to integrate cultural heritage resource management into MSP in the Baltic Sea, using the opportunity of the ongoing processes driven by the MSP Directive across all Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries. It will contribute to some lacking dimension of sustainability in the MSP processes in the BSR, thereby closing gaps to support regional efforts and to become an international model of MSP implementation. BalticRIM aims to improve the capacity of regional and Maritime Cultural Heritage (MCH) planning agencies by developing, testing and implementing new planning solutions, innovative ways of public participation as well as sectoral MCH concepts throughout the BSR.

The project is lead by the Archäologisches Landesamt Schleswig-Holstein (State Archaeological Department of Schleswig-Holstein) and will run from Autumn 2017 until Autumn 2020.
