Flagship projects

The actions of the EUSBSR are implemented by means of flagship projects. Flagship projects demonstrate the progress of the EUSBSR, and may serve as pilot examples for desired action. Flagship projects have a macro-regional impact and develop joint initiatives involving partnership from different countries.

Horizontal Action's "Spatial Planning" flagship project status is proposed:
- by the joint HELCOM-VASAB MSP Working Group for the projects concerning MSP issues;
- by the VASAB CSPD/BSR for the land-based spatial planning projects.

More information on how to become a flagship project is available HERE.
Some project ideas for new Flagship Projects can be found HERE.

Flagship projects of MSP relevance

Baltic LINes - Coherent Linear Infrastructures in Baltic Maritime Spatial Plans is aiming to increase transnational coherence of shipping routes and energy corridors in maritime spatial plans in the BSR in order to prevent cross-border mismatches and secure transnational connectivity as well as efficient use of Baltic Sea space. 




Project's lifetime: March 2016 - March 2019
Budget: € 3 409 458
Financed from: Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020

Baltic SCOPE – Towards coherence and cross-border solutions in Baltic Sea Maritime Spatial Plans develops common solutions of the cross-border MSP leading to greater alignment of national plans, by executing a unique exercise to challenge countries involved, learns from the gained experience and transfers the knowledge beyond the project and region, as well as facilitates the implementation of the EU MSP Directive. Project develops two MSP case studies- Southwest Baltic case (SE, DK, DE, PL) and Central Baltic case (Latvian MSP in cross-border consultation with EE and SE). Both case studies focus on how shipping traffic, wind farming, fishing and other uses function in these areas and how they can compromise.




Project's lifetime: March 2015 - March 2017
Budget: € 2 638 829
Financed from: DG MARE (Call MARE/2014/22)





PartiSEApate - Multi-level Governance in MSP (Maritime Spatial Planning) throughout the Baltic Sea Region. Project developed methodologies for how to carry out multi-level MSP processes across national boundaries via three pilot cases. It brought together stakeholders to foster holistic thinking for sustainable and integrated MSP, as well as suggested a Pan-Baltic MSP governance model.


Project's lifetime: June 2012 - December 2014
Budget: € 1 043 015
Financed from: Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013





Land-based spatial planning flagship projects





BEA-APP - Baltic Energy Areas – A Planning Perspective aims to improve the capacity of regional and renewable energy planning actors by developing, testing and implementing new spatially adjusted spatial planning instruments, innovative stakeholder involvement modes and financing systems, as well as place-based pilot actions assessing local circumstances and conditions, defining the optimal renewable energy mix for strategically selected areas and setting the scene for a number of concrete renewable energy projects in the region.


Project's lifetime: March 2016 – March 2019
Budget: € 2 700 000
Financed from: Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020
