Collection, quality and availability of marine data have been identified as major issue for further development of EU policies on maritime affaires and fisheries, including all aspects of Blue growth. The goal of the seminar is to discuss how policy in this field can potentially catch up with latest developments and which approach is the most suitable for local and regional authorities throughout Europe, identifying possible solutions. Particular accent during the discussion will be put on cartography and mapping for the purposes of integrated maritime policy and maritime spatial planning, and the importance of an methodological approach to the use of data for the development of the blue economy.
