SIMAtlantic, a two-year project co-funded by the European Union and implemented by partners representing academic institutions, marine planning authorities and scientific public bodies, aims to support the establishment and implementation of maritime spatial planning (MSP) in five European Atlantic countries: France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom.
On May 18, 2021, within the framework of the European Maritime Day ‘In My Country’ programme, the partners of SIMAtlantic team up with the Assistance Mechanism for the Atlantic Action Plan and invite you to join us online to hear about progress on the SIMAtlantic project and the Atlantic Action Plan and help us develop a vision for maritime spatial planning (MSP) in the European Atlantic region, with lessons from experiences elsewhere and input from MSP stakeholders.
The programme will include:

- Introducing the European Atlantic region
- Update on MSP in the five European Atlantic nations
Transboundary issues in the European Atlantic
- Data use and sharing
- Land-sea interactions
- The Atlantic Action Plan and the blue economy
