Angela Schultz-Zehden (MBA, MSc European Studies, BSc Econ) is manager-owner of s.Pro – sustainable projects. She has been involved in the development of Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) and Integrated Maritime Policy since 2001, starting with the BaltCoast initiative that first introduced the concept of sea-use-planning in the Baltic Sea. Since then she has developed and led a whole string of projects related to MSP within the Baltic Sea Region (BaltCoast, PlanCoast, BaltSeaPlan, PartiSEApate) and beyond (Adriatic/Black/North Sea). Based on this experience she has authored numerous key guiding documents on MSP/ICZM and acts as advisor to DG Mare, CBSS, VASAB and other national and transnational organisations.

Barbara Weig (PhD Geography, Diploma in Geography, Economics and Ethnology) is a consultant at s.Pro – sustainable projects GmbH. During her earlier work as lecturer and Ph.D. candidate, she gained expertise in a variety of empirical methods used in regional research. Her main interest topics are international shipping, estuary management and sustainable regional development in coastal areas. Within the Interreg IVb project TIDE, she gained first insights into project work. In this context she developed, organised and evaluated a population survey implemented along the tidal Elbe to analyse the perception of the region as a cultural, natural and economic space.
