Progress of the Plan Bothnia project was presented by Project Manager to all EU member state representatives on wednesday 21 September at the 10th meeting of the Member State Expert group on Maritime Policy (CC Albert Borchette, Rue Froissart, Brussels, Belgium) under the topic “update on Maritime Spatial Planning” (by DG MARE unit E1).
The expert group is the forum for information exchange on the EU Integrated Maritime Policy between the EU Commission DG MARE and the Member state representatives. Besides MSP the agenda covered the Adriatic-Ionian basin Maritime strategy, the EMODnet initiative and a study on costs and benefits on EEZs in the Mediterranean.
The response to our project was positive- hope this raises further interest in our exciting initiative across the EU!
