Multi-use in European Seas
The aim of the MUSES project (Multi-Use in European Seas) was to explore the opportunities for Multi-Use in European Seas across all EU sea basins. The project was designed to examine the challenges of developing Multi-Uses of ocean space from a number of perspectives and geographic scales, and provide a comprehensive understanding of environmental, spatial, economic and societal benefits of co-location of offshore and near-shore activities.
MUSES built on existing knowledge to explore the real opportunities for Multi-Use in European Seas, including the scope for innovation and Blue Growth potential and to present practical solutions on how to overcome existing barriers and minimize risks associated with Multi-Use development.

Muses was a consortium of 10 project partners, including SUBMARINER Network.
