European Blue Parks – Protection and restoration solutions for degraded coastal and marine habitats



September 27, 2022

Project types:

  1. HORIZON-IA HORIZON Innovation Actions

Project Proposal

The call HORIZON-MISS-2022-OCEAN-01-01 has been scheduled to close, so this opportunity is no longer current.

The semi-formal marine environmental team within my research group on Arctic Governance at the Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland is interested in contributing to a consortium for HORIZON-MISS-2022-OCEAN-01-01. The Blue Parks call is particularly interesting for us based on our previous work on marine environmental protection and we would like to offer contributing a case study or work package with a particular focus on the Arctic Ocean and/or the Baltic Sea. As our focus is very much on the social sciences, in particular regulation, governance, and law, and on the impact on local coastal communities, we would like to add our particular skill sets, expertise and the practical benefits that come from being located between the Baltic and Barents Seas.
