Marine Spatial Planning and Biodiversity

There are several policy frameworks within which both integration and quantitative analysis are central, such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, Natura 2000, the Common Fisheries Policy and the implementation of the ecosystem approach.

The aim of this project is to develop instruments for the integration (IVI) of knowledge of the marine ecosystem, both in models and in visual concepts, for use by policy and stakeholders. A second goal is to conduct research on marine biodiversity and the effects of human activities thereon.
