SUBMARINER Network new flagship under the EUSBSR – Join us as a founding member!
The SUBMARINER Network is a new flagship project under the Priority Area “Innovation” of the revised Action Plan of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR). It aims to be a transnational umbrella for future actions in the field of sustainable and innovative uses of Baltic marine resources. Based on the SUBMARINER Roadmap (to be published in early fall 2013), the Network will coordinate implementation of specific actions and ensure communication between projects and initiatives. Parties interested in joining the SUBMARINER Network as a founding member are kindly invited to the next partner meeting of the current SUBMARINER project in Maribo, Lolland (Denmark) on 8 May 2013. Along with final discussion on the SUBMARINER Roadmap, the statutes of the future Network will be endorsed here. Please contact Joanna Przedrzymirska and Angela Schultz-Zehden at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Interactive Map on New Marine Uses Launched
SUBMARINER has launched a web-based, interactive map showing institutions and sites connected to innovative marine uses across the Baltic Sea Region. Go to map.submariner-project.eu to browse the map! You also have the possibility to add new points to the map via the button “add point on map”. In case you find any incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Dilara Shabayeva from SUBMARINER partner Environmental Development Association at email@example.com.

SUBMARINER has just published a magazine on mussel farming in its series of perspectives from Cooperation Events. This publication is a follow-up of the Åland Aquaculture Week which was held in Mariehamn, Åland in October 2012 in collaboration with the Aquabest project. The contributors discuss the use of mussel farming as an environmental measure for improving the water quality of the highly eutrophied Baltic Sea, other applications such as human consumption and feed production, technological solutions to be applied in Baltic Sea conditions, but also possible challenges to a wide-spread introduction of mussel farming in the Baltic Sea.

Order your personal hard copy of the SUBMARINER Compendium and give us your feedback by 30 April 2013
The SUBMARINER Compendium (published in autumn 2012) provides, for the first time, a comprehensive assessment of the potential for innovative and sustainable uses of Baltic marine resources. It has been distributed to more than 500 experts and stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region and beyond. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to order your personal hard copy. The consultation questionnaire is open for contributions until 30 April 2013 at consultation.submariner-project.eu. Your feedback will feed into the SUBMARINER Roadmap which will recommend necessary steps across all disciplines to promote beneficial uses.
Workshop “Spatial Planning implications of Aquaculture as a new user in the Baltic Sea”, GdaNsk, 15–16 April 2013
A forward looking Maritime Spatial Planning requires that sufficient space be kept available for possible new types of marine uses. Projects like SUBMARINER, Aquabest and AQUAFIMA are currently analysing the potential of new marine resource uses such as reed for bioenergy, algae and mussel cultivation, fish mariculture, and wave energy. This workshop will identify the spatial planning implications of those new uses, i.e. overall space needed, specific locations, and conflicts and synergies with other uses.
