Specific Challenge:

The objective of this call for proposals is to support the establishment and implementation of Maritime Spatial Plans in line with the objectives pursued in the framework of the MSP Directive. More specifically, this action intends to support Member States in setting up maritime spatial plans and ensuring plans are coherent and coordinated across marine regions concerened.

Scope:

In order to align the proposals to the objectives of this call and considering that actions co-funded under this call will be finalised at the time that martime plans have to be adopted in line with the MSP Directive (31.03.2021), applicants are required to address the following priorities in their proposals:

1. Support the work of MSP competent authorities and/or inter-ministerial bodies in the establishment and adoption of maritime spatial plans;

2. Where relevant, support the development of cross-border cooperation on MSP with bordering Member States and third countries with a view to ensure that martime spatial plans are coherent and coordinated across marine regions concerened;

3. Making use of the best available data and organise the sharing of information, necessary for maritime spatial plans, by using relevant mechanism and tools (e.g. INSPIRE, EMODNet).

Expected Impact:

The expected results to be achieved by the end of the project must be concrete, realistic and quantified as far as possible.

Proposals must clearly describe the specific results of the project for each of the following elements:

  1. Specific results delivered by the project to the elaboration and/or implementation of a maritime spatial plan/s for the area/s identified (in line with article 6 and 8 of MSP Directive);

    Some examples of expected results (non-exhaustive list): definition of national MSP objectives, roadmap for the adoption of plans, a preliminary maritime spatial plan for the area identified.

  2. Specific results delivered by the project that have enhanced the data use, and the information and knowledge sharing necessary for maritime spatial plans (in line with article 10 of MSP Directive on data use and sharing).

    Some examples of expected results (non-exhaustive list): set-up of IT platforms/systems aimed to share data and information in the context of MSP implementation, use of exisiting tools to develop IT systems aimed to share MSP data and information across Member States, mechanism aimed to ensure compatibility of MSP data (in line with INSPIRE).

  3. Specific results delivered by the project to ensure that maritime spatial plans are coherent and coordinated across the marine region (in line with article 11 and 12 of MSP Directive);

    Some examples of expected results (non-exhaustive list): If relevant, agreement on common objectives with bordering Member States, or consultation process of maritime spatial plans with bordering Member States, or established mechanisms that have strengthen and fostered corss-border cooperation in the field of MSP.

The list of expected results above is non-exhaustive and applicants may add other expected results if relevant.
