alt alt

On 1st April 2015 the Maritime Institute in Gdańsk commenced implementation of the project titled „Towards Sustainable Governance of Baltic Marine Space (BaltSpace)”, financed by the European Union within the BONUS – 185 Common International Programme for Baltic and by the Baltic Sea national funding institutions including the National Centre of Research and Development. Project BaltSpace, as one of eight projects, received financial support in the implementation in the BONUS – 2014 Sustainable Ecosystem Services competition. Maritime Institute in Gdańsk is one of the eight partners in the international consortium of the BaltSpace Project, the maim coordinator of which is Södertörn University in Sweden.
The main objective of the BaltSpace Project is to ensure the scientific approach and tools needed to improve the ability of marine space planning, as an instrument of integrating strategies and reacting of the countries to the present and future Baltic challenges.

BONUS is a common programme of research and development for creating knowledge to support, develop and implement regulations, policies and practices of management, specially adjusted to the Baltic Sea Region. Human activity has changed most ecosystems and continues to threaten to sustain its ecological well-being for future generations. BONUS works to tackle this challenge in the Baltic Sea regional scale. It gathers eight European Union Member States bordering the Baltic Sea in order to cooperate together and provide policy-makers with the information needed to achieve greater sustainability in the region.
