As an integral part of its work on encouraging an EU-wide application of Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP), the Commission is contracting a series of studies to gain further conceptual knowledge and collect examples of practical work on MSP from different angles. So far, two studies have been completed on legal aspects of MSP and on economic benefits. Another one on the potential for applying MSP in the Mediterranean Sea is still ongoing and will be finalised in October 2010. The contractor carrying out the latter study will present it and give an overview of the material collected so far.
