BalticRIM” - Baltic Sea Region Integrated Maritime Cultural Heritage Management

The cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea is exceptionally versatile and well preserved even in a global comparison. To date, these cultural assets are barely included in Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) in the Baltic Sea. BalticRIM aims to integrate cultural heritage resource management into MSP in the Baltic Sea, using the opportunity of the ongoing processes driven by the MSP Directive across all Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries. BalticRIM aims also to improve the capacity of regional and MCH planning agencies.

In collaboration with MSP experts and institutions, maritime cultural heritage authorities and experts will draw on existing Maritime Cultural Heritage (MCH) databases and mapping tools to provide quality information and planning evidence on MCH assets and areas to the MSP processes. The project will develop tools to structure decision-making processes and criteria leading to compatible planning solutions to be integrated into future MSP through a series of cross-sector dialogues and assessments carried out in pilot areas with real maritime spatial plans. The project will create examples of win-win solutions between MCH assets, other maritime economic and environmental interests through collaborative planning and management pilot cases. Joint desk research, fieldwork in pilot areas and cross-sector and stakeholder workshops help building capacities for efficient integrated resource management. The project partners are state agencies in charge of cultural heritage management as well as MSP experts in the Baltic Sea area. Both expert groups have a long experience of close cooperation. The partnership’s expertise is underpinned by academic and other stakeholders’ involvement in the target groups. The project has received the flagship status by the EUSBSR PA Culture, which creates a common platform to interact with the creative sector and the exploitation of the project results in their activities. The HELCOM-VASAB Joint Working MSP Group as well as the BSSSC-network of subregional organisation supports the project. Thereby, the impact of the project results and outreach to central actors are ensured. The BSS Subregional Cooperation will assist in disseminating tools to structure decision-making and participatory processes in and between the regions as well as highlights opportunities to create synergies between MCH assets and the requirements of other Blue Growth sectors and options to balance the concerns of cultural heritage protection, resource efficiency and – for instance – the potential for tourism potential, with respect to the EU Blue Growth initiative.
