Our team member PhD Chiara Venier and PhD Elena Gissi (IUAV, Venice) were visiting scientist at the Center of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) of the University of Queensland (Australia) under the Short Term Mobility Program of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). The three weeks experience aimed at supporting the decision making process on marine conservation, aquaculture and fishery in the Adriatic-Ionian Region through the application of Marxan, a decision support tool for planning scenario development and analysis.

During the Open Day at CNR-ISMAR the Tools4MSP team was present with an information stand illustrating to young and adult visitors the importance and potentials of decision support systems based on open-source data for the Lagoon of Venice and the Adriatic-Ionian Region. The following systems have been presented
MUSES Project (Multi-Use in European Seas, H2020), Kick-off Meeting, 13-14 December, Brussels (Belgium).
Other project Kickoffs coming soon in 2017:MED-CO-EVOLVE (Promoting the co-evolution of human activities and natural systems for the development of sustainable coastal and maritime tourism, Interreg Med).
MED-CO-EVOLVE project aims at analyzing and promoting the co-evolution of human activities and natural systems in touristic coastal areas, allowing sustainable development of touristic activities based on the principles of ICZM/MSP. CO-EVOLVE couples a presently unavailable analysis at MED scale of threats and enabling factors for sustainable tourism with local studies on representative Pilot Areas, to demonstrate through pilot actions the feasibility and effectiveness of a ICZM/MSP-based planning process. More information coming soon.SUPREME(Supporting Implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning in the Eastern Mediterranean region, DG-Mare).
SUPREME project involves public authorities in charge of MSP, as designated by the Governs of four MS (GR, HR, IT and SL), and the UNEP/MAP Barcelona Convention. SUPREME will focus on two key objectives, stated in the call for proposals: 1. To supporting the implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning in EU Member States 2. To launch and carry out concrete and cross-border MSP initiative between Member States. More information coming soon.
SIMWESTMED(Supporting Implementation of Maritime Spatial Planning in the Western Mediterranean region, DG-Mare). SIMWESTMED will focus on supporting the implementation of the Directive on Maritime Spatial Planning in Member States' marine waters and launching and carrying out concrete, cross-border MSP cooperation between Member States in the Western Mediterranean region.
The sub-project SP7of the RITMARE aims to design an interoperable Spatial Data Infrastructure capable to manage data and information flows from different information systems in sub-projects of RITMARE without forcing the pre-existing practices already adopted by the RITMARE scientific communities. The Spatial Data Infrastructure can be accessed through the RITMARE Data Portal (v0.0) and allows user communties to access spatial data from one or multiple geographical areas in a common interface.
A new open source GET-It Starter Kit (Geoinformation Enabling ToolkIT starterkit) suite has been developed by researchers from IREA and ISMAR as a collaborative effort toward the integration of traditional geographic information with observational data. GET-it Starter Kit has helped various researchers to manage and make available their data in the RITMARE Data Portal.
