The platform should be connected with EC Implementation Support Strategy Committees and initiatives (MSEG, Assistance Mechanism…) and key R&I initiatives and should be coherent with Atlantic Strategy and Action Plan, OSPAR Convention Protocols and initiatives.

The Regional Platform is intended as a supporting service that will establish mechanisms for knowledge co-production (through brokerage, twinning, exchange of best practices, knowledge, tools, experiences …) and capacity building at basin scale.

It will be a useful tool to network and exchange best practices in establishing proper mechanisms to involve key stakeholders on transnational MSP issues, and identifying suitable enforceability paths for MSP in transbotmdary areas.

Output: An analysis of transboundary cooperation between MSs for transboundary cooperation with respect to MSP. A cooperation with the partnership of SIMCelt project.
