The challenges of undertaking so many projects in just over a decade are massive: technically, logistically and financially. We need to better understand what can be done and to learn from each other’s experiences in order to optimally make use of the infrastructure that is to be built.
During the workshop, we tried to understand the current knowledge gaps in relation to the (cumulative) impacts of marine infrastructure. Together with stakeholders, we explored what can be done to close these knowledge gaps, and how to collect relevant data and make it available to permitting authorities across borders. In addition, we discussed how grid infrastructure could be used to gather data that may contribute positively to the permitting process.
