Rapidly growing interests in marine resources and the development of various marine activities call for more coordinated actions towards the efficient use of marine space and resources. The aim of the workshop is to produce a set of recommendations for a future oriented MSP-education, with the regional or sea basin aspects, the core contents of MSP education, the cross-border/international nature of it and the organization including cooperation, format and level. Focus is also on pooling existing knowledge on the sea and sea resources, which again calls for international trainings in MSP.
