State-of-play: Mapping complementary projects

The purpose of the study

Indication for a need of new directions

There seems historically to be a considerable emphasis on projects relevant to the Viabal maritime heritage focus especially in the south part of the Baltic Sea, with fewer in the central part of the Baltic and – above all – only some single projects addressing a joint All Baltic perspective.
