ICES Annual Science Conference 2018

On 24-27 September, the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) holds its Annual Science Conference (ASC) in Hamburg.

On the 25 September, Andrea Morf, Senior Research Fellow at Nordregio and co-chair of the Working Group on Marine Planning and Coastal Management, arranges a conference session focusing on on assessing and analysing marine spatial planning and coastal management together with colleagues from the Marine Spatial Planning Research Network.

The session titled “Assessing and analysing marine spatial planning – knowledge – indicators – visions“ aims to open up perspectives on both marine spatial planning (MSP) and integrated coastal management and drive ahead the agenda for research and practice development.

Pan Baltic SCOPE work by Nordregio in the Land-Sea Interaction Work Package will be present through a presentation by Sarah Mahadeo, Helena Calado and Andrea Morf on a framework to analyse Land Sea Interactions in the maritime spatial planning. Sarah is a former MSP ERASMUS+ Intern at Nordregio and has recently successfully defended her Master Thesis with a refined version of the framework.
