Baltic LINes project news

Stakeholder Involvement in Long-term Maritime Spatial Planning
Latvian Case

New Baltic LINes report developed by the Latvian Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development provides an insight into Latvia's experience on the development of future scenarios for shipping and energy sectors up to 2050 and the identification of critical issues at national and BSR levels, as well as key findings and outcomes.

The Future of Maritime Spatial Planning Data
Designing a Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MDSI) Prototype for Maritime Spatial Planning Data in the Baltic Sea

The Flagship "Baltic LINes" financed by Interreg Baltic Sea programme aims at increasing transnational coherence of shipping routes and energy corridors in Maritime Spatial Plans (MSP). This is essential to prevent cross-border mismatches, to secure transnational connectivity and to assure efficient use of Baltic Sea space. Getting up-to-date georeferenced transnational data from the original sources is crucial to achieve this objective. HELCOM, in cooperation with Aalborg University, is leading the development of the first Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) prototype in the Baltic Sea.

International Stakeholders Shape the Future of Shipping in the Baltic Sea

The project Baltic LINes on January 24 – 25, 2018 organised an international shipping sector stakeholder workshop “Shaping the Future of Shipping in the Baltic Sea” in Riga, Latvia. 18 shipping stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region engaged with the simulation software “MSP Challenge 2050”.

International Shipping Stakeholder Meeting in Riga

Project "Baltic LINes" organises the international shipping sector stakeholder meeting and interactive simulation for the Baltic Sea “Shaping the Future of Shipping in the Baltic Sea”. The meeting will take place on January 24 – 25, 2018 in Riga, Latvia.

New reports available!
BSR MSP data infrastructure for shipping routes and energy corridors

Two new reports from the project "Baltic LINes" are analysing data needs and availability as well as establishing guidelines to data exchange and dissemination towards building a prototype Baltic Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI), which will make it easy to access open standard datasets.

Baltic LINes on the 8th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR

During the 8th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR on 13 – 14 June 2017 in Berlin, project partners of "Baltic LINes" organized seminar "What's the future? Testing the possible scenarios for shipping and energy in the Baltic Sea and how to integrate them into maritime spatial planning".

See the report: Shipping in the Baltic Sea
Past, Present and Future Developments Relevant for Maritime Spatial Planing

The report represents a first synthesis of available literature on the topic of shipping in the Baltic Sea and related past, present and future developments relevant for MSP.

Baltic LINes covered in INTERREG B journal

Baltic LINes along with its sister project North SEE has been presented in the Interreg B Journal 2016 which is published by Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development in Germany.


Interregional cooperation in Maritime Spatial Planning kick-started at a joint meeting in Copenhagen

Two new European projects will improve transnational coordination in Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) in the North and Baltic Sea. Because human activities and their impacts do not stop at national sea borders, there is a need for coordination among national Maritime Spatial Plans and planning processes.
