Case Study 1: North Sea

The North Sea is one of the busiest seas with many (often growing or newly emerging) sectors laying a claim to a limited amount of space. The need for Integrated Assessments (IA), Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) and Ecosystem-based Management (EBM) is therefore rapidly increasing and an adequate scientific knowledge base is becoming a key requirement for more informed decision-making. In this AQUACROSS case study we therefore explicitly apply an integrated, interdisciplinary perspective when developing our knowledge base to inform EBM.
