Maritime policy and transnational cooperation in the focus of workshop discussions
With its workshop “Stepping into the Sea – New evidence on territorial development and the opportunities and risks for European seas and maritime regions” ESPON offered a crossing through the six European seas, thereby revealing their crucial role for growth and jobs and for the achievement of territorial cohesion. The workshop aimed at highlighting the usability of the ESPON ESaTDOR project results and at discussing related topics that are relevant for the EU political agenda.
In addition to a series of presentations by representatives of DG Mare, national and transnational stakeholders as well as the Lead Partner of the ESaTDOR project, the workshop featured two rounds of open discussions that were kicked-off by short statements of different stakeholders. During the open discussions, policy-makers and stakeholders exchanged their views about the necessary synergies to be achieved between land and sea management, maritime spatial planning, and the need of conciliating the economic potential and the environmental protection of the European seas.
