With the adoption of the new EU Directive on Maritime Spatial Planning, the Commission aims to expand the development of MSP processes throughout the EU, by facilitating cooperation between Member States in the management of the maritime space in sea basins surrounding the EU. To support this process, three new projects are programmed to establish lasting mechanisms for cross-border cooperation in EU, closely linked to the role played by, and the legal obligations required of, relevant national and governmental authorities in charge of MSP. The Call for Proposals for cross-border MSP projects concern in the Black Sea, Baltic Sea and North Sea. The deadline for submission of proposals is 14 November 2014.
