Kick-off for Baltic SCOPE project

A new project on developing and coordinating the maritime spatial plans in the Baltic Sea started with a kick-off partner meeting held in Gothenburg, Sweden on 18 and 19 March 2015. The 2 million euro project “Baltic SCOPE” became a reality after the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) gave green light to the proposal which s.Pro had developed on behalf of the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM).
“The project really answers to the call in terms of bringing all the partners of the sea basin together, implementing the directive [on maritime spatial planning], and involving the right and competent authorities which is exactly what we wanted to do”, says Sylvain Gambert, policy officer at DG MARE European Commission.
