As stakes and claims of different marine actors in the North Sea increase, the fisheries sector finds itself in the so-called spatial squeeze. In its quest to reconcile food and energy security and ecosystem conservation, EU MSP aims to ensure all voices are heard in an equitable and pragmatic allocation of space to the benefit of its actors, citizens and biospheres, in processes that are increasingly transboudary.

The NSAC workshop on MSP will explore principles of timely stakeholder engagement and cross-border management, and notions of co-existence and multi-purpose platforms, among others. We will hear from multiple EU actors, the Commission, environmental NGOs, the industry (energy and fishing), science, and Member States, including third countries such as the UK and Norway.

Date and time: 3 May 2023, 9.30-17.00 CET
