For a sustainable and integrated planning of the sea space across the Baltic Sea region, planners and stakeholders have to be engaged in holistic, pan-Baltic thinking where the whole Baltic Sea is considered as one ecosystem and one planning space. However MSP related experiences so far shows that interests are often expressed from one sector or one national or regional perspective only. There is a lack of information exchange between the different maritime sectors as well MSP support structures (i.e. data providers and researchers) and spatial planners. And at the same time there is insufficient communication within the sectors at pan-Baltic level. Therefore the PartiSEApate project has launched the transnational stakeholders’ dialogue series to address these shortcomings and to encouraging a pan-Baltic approach for those topics whose spatial dimension transcend national borders.
